Anderson Silva vs Tito Ortiz is likely to take place
Multiple sources have already confirmed the potential bout and it is expected to take place as part of the same event where Oscar De La Hoya will headline with Vitor Belfort in the main event. Jake Paul ‘Exposes’ Tyson Fury Family Lies
Earlier this week, Ortiz had teased that he was preparing for a fight while adding that Logan Paul “missed out” on the opportunity to face him.
Now it turns out that the “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” has set up a fight with Silva instead as he is likely to make his debut in boxing after last competing in mixed martial arts in 2019 with a first-round submission win over professional wrestling star Alberto El Patron.
Ortiz has a three-fight win streak in his career with additional victories over Chuck Liddell and Chael Sonnen but this will be his first outing in boxing.
While Silva is expected to return to the boxing ring after a great performance to defeat former champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at a special event in Mexico in June.
The former UFC star had pulled off an outstanding victory via split decision over Chavez Jr. Since that night, rumors have stated about Silva making a return to the ring and now it looks like he’ll make that walk again on Sept.11
The Triller Fight Club card will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles with the card broadcast on pay-per-view.
