Tito Ortiz gets fined for double middle-finger salute against Bonnar

Just a drop in the ocean really, considering his total paycheck.

He’s as bold as it gets, that Tito.

Tito Ortiz has been fined $2,500 after sticking his fingers up at the back of Stephan Bonnar’s head after their fight on Saturday night and the California State Athletic Commission were not happy about it.

The pair met at Bellator 131 when Tito dictated the action for the duration of the fight before being awarded a split decision victory over Bonnar.

Trash talk dominated the build-up to the highly anticipated clash between UFC hall-of-famers and Tito was clearly not willing to let that die after the final bell.

Not that the fine will break the bank too much for “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” as he earned a reported $300,000 for his evening’s work.

Still, not wise to get on the bad side of the athletic commission, not that Tito has been their best buddy in his career.
