Tito Ortiz vs. Ryan Bader at UFC 132 on July 2nd in Las Vegas, Nevada

Former UFC light heavweight champion, Tito Ortiz and TUF 8 winner, Ryan Bader will throw down in a light heavyweight bout at UFC 132 in Las Vegas, Nevada on July 2nd, 2011.

Ortiz is in a win or go home situation, after a disappointing decision loss at the hands of former student, Matt Hamill last year. He was due to return to the octagon this coming weekend vs. Antonio Rogerio Nogueira at UFC Fight Night 24 but injury forced him to withdraw.

Bader will look to rebound from a second round submission defeat at the hands of newly crowned UFC light heavyweight champion, Jon Jones. Prior to that he’d been undefeated including a third round TKO win over Keith Jardine and a decision win over Tito’s former opponent, Little Nog.
