We've all heard the rumors of Tito Ortiz's possible return to the UFC.

UFC light heavyweight Stephan Bonnar has heard them, too.

Bonnar, who recently dropped a unanimous decision to Mark Coleman at UFC 100, today told MMAjunkie.com Radio (www.mmajunkie.com/radio) he doesn't have an upcoming fight scheduled, but he's certainly willing to head the welcome wagon for "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy's" potential return to the octagon.

If he couldn't handle the GnP of Coleman, he won't handle Ortiz.

My thoughts exactly. Tito would humiliate Bonnar, IMO.

Prolly not the best idea for Bonnar, considering his track record with wrestlers and ground n pound guys.

I'd like to see him stand and brawl with someone.

Sorry for Bonnar, but if he lost to Coleman, he'd get finished by Tito, who hasn't finished a fight since Ken Shamrock.

why would he waste his breath calling out a wrestler? A wrestler w/ arguably the most feard ground and pound of all time, It's almost like he has taken a likeing to not winning.

Bonnar is one of the only guys in the division I think Tito would have an easy time with at this point. Its just a bad bad match up for him. He should be shooting for guys who are going to give him a brawl, so even if he looses he'll get kept on just for making good fights.

I wouldnt mind seeing Cantwell vs Bonnar at some point. Would be a fun fight.

Man, this is just a horrible matchup for Bonnar. Tito would take him down and pound on him to either finish the fight by TKO or just pound him for all 3 rounds. Bonnar needs to fight a guy who will stand and fight with him, thats his best shot at winning fights.
