Tito Ortiz: 'You've got to be a world champion to be in the Hall of Fame'

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

Tito Ortiz doesn't think Stephan Bonnar should be joining him in the UFC Hall of Fame.

Tito Ortiz, the newest UFC Hall of Famer, thinks that the new guys are going to ruin the neighborhood. Ortiz spoke to MMA Junkie about the planned induction of Ultimate Fighters Forrest Griffin and Stephan Bonnar:

"Forrest deserves it. He beat me, and he beat some other really good guys. He was a world champion. He had some great fights. I think he deserves it. As far as Stephan, I have nothing against the guy, but you've got to be a world champion, I think, to be in the Hall of Fame."
