Tito Ortiz will likely have a major weight advantage on his side when he meets Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko in a light heavyweight bout that’s being planned for Bellator’s May 17 pay-per-view event.

I'm curious if this is one of Bjorn's selling points for the fight...

It's better than that ridiculous WWE-style face off the two did at the previous event. Tito used to know how to hype an event. He looked ridiculous.

That was ridiculous. And Tito kept making reference to this fight being like Rocky IV.

If Tito can work big takedowns with any success it will be interesting. Storm should be able to light him up on the feet though, he is deceptively fast. Tito will need to use any size advantage he has to make this a close engagement.

Still no lines I've seen, but I would guess Shlemenko around -240, Tito +190.
