Dana White Says He Released Stephan Bonnar To Fight Tito Ortiz

Who would have though the UFC would ever release one of its own fighters from their contracts just so they could fight under Bellator? Well, no one, but thats exactly what happened in the case of Stephan Bonnar.

Dana White had this to say about Bonnar finishing up with the UFC:

“I released him to do it. He was still under contract with us. We released him to do it and I wish him the best. He was retired. What he told me is that he wants to beat the shit out of Tito, and I’m always down for that, so I released him.”
