I don't think it's crazy, storm is not near the fighter Bellator talks him up to be and it's easy to forget how good Tito is capable of being. Besides the size difference is massive. Tito is a big LHW and Storm a bloated Ww
Round 1 – The size difference here is crazy. It’s got to be more than 20 pounds. There’s no touch of gloves. The look to stand. Ortiz throws first, and Shlemenko ducks away. Ortiz shoots, but Shlemenko defends and throws some punches to the head and body. The crowd quickly starts a “Tito!” chant, but it dies down fast. He tries to tie Shlemenko up and lands a solid jab. Shlemenko kicks to the body, then punches there, then lands a spinning back fist. Another shot for Ortiz is stuffed, but he pushes Shlemenko to the fence. Ortiz tries to land knees, then tosses Shlemenko to the acnvas and takes his back. Shlemenko scrambles, but it’s going to be Ortiz on top. Ortiz is going after an arm triangle. It’s tight.And Shlemenko is asleep. It’s a huge upset victory for Ortiz. He needed to get this fight to the floor to win it, and that’s exactly what he did. Shlemenko wakes up and he’s not happy.
Result: Tito Ortiz def. Alexander Shlemenko via submission (arm-triangle choke) – Round 1, 2:27
