Tito Ortiz must pay.
The California State Athletic Commission has fined Ortiz $2500 for his post-fight actions following his win over Stephan Bonnar at Bellator 131.
After Ortiz was announced as the victor, he gave a double middle finger gesture after Bonnar dramatically collapsed to the ground pretending to have a heart attack. Ortiz then sprayed his opponent with the open bottle of water in his hand, flipped Bonnar off again, then exited the cage.
The $2,500 is only a small portion Ortiz’s purse from the fight, which was reported to be $300,000 – approximately half of the overall salaries for all the fighters on the card.
