It’s been well over three years since Chael Sonnen last fought. “The American Gangster” had a dramatic fall from grace since his title fights against Anderson Silva and Jon Jones after failing a drug test for four different banned substances.

  • Tito Ortiz: 2.20
  • Chael Sonnen: 1.58

Stepping across the cage from Sonnen will be Tito Ortiz, the former UFC light-heavyweight champion. Ortiz managed to rejuvenate his career inside Bellator MMA with two straight wins, but failed to capture the title against submission specialist Liam McGeary. Tito Ortiz made UK gambling news last week by claiming this will be his last fight, and he will be looking to end his career with a win.

This is an interesting fight for a number of reasons. We haven’t seen Sonnen in the cage for years, and it remains to be seen whether father time has finally caught up with him. Also, he will be moving up in weight in this fight, and will likely be undersized against Ortiz. Bet365 has already set the odds to bet on Chael Sonnen vs. Tito Ortiz, so let’s take a look at who’s coming in as the favorite.

Sonnen vs. Ortiz betting odds

Chael Sonnen came as close to winning a UFC championship as anyone can. He was seen as one of the toughest fighters to face during his prime, and has arguably the best wrestling above 170 pounds. Sonnen and Ortiz have actually wrestled in the past, and Chael won easily. This may have played a part in most online sportsbooks in the UK listing him as the MMA betting favorite with odds of 1.58.

Tito Ortiz will never be the fighter he was before, but he still possesses the kind of skills to give any fighter trouble. He has improved his standup under Jason Parillo, and will likely try to keep this fight on the feet. Most people looking to bet on Chael Sonnen vs. Tito Ortiz are anticipating a back and forth brawl. Tito is entering this fight as the MMA betting underdog with odds of 2.20.
