Bellator stars Ortiz and Bonnar pass random doping tests
The upcoming Bellator 131 event is to take place this weekend with long awaited match that includes two UFC House of Fame members; former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz and first TUF finalist Stephan Bonnar. Both fighters had to take the unannounced doping tests.
One of the Bellator leaders, Andy Foster, said to MMAFighting.com that the headliners of this event had to take three urine tests on illegal substances. Tito Ortiz has been tested once, while Stephan Bonnar has been tested twice.
Tito has never failed a doping test, but Stephen was caught with illegal substances in his system making the testing this time completely justified. It is hard to say whether it was coincidence that they tested former UFC fighter or this is UFC's little revenge since the coincidences in the fighting sports are extremely rare.
