It’s no secret that both Quinton (Rampage) Jackson and Tito (People’s Champ) Ortiz are still bitter about their time with the UFC.

The former light-heavyweight champions are set to headline Bellator’s inaugural pay-per-view card in Long Beach, Calif., Nov. 2. During a recent media call to hype the event, the fighters didn’t waste any time lashing out at their previous employer.

Though neither fighter specifically named Dana White, Ortiz referenced previous criticism he and Jackson received from the UFC president.

“If we lose (in Bellator), our boss isn’t going to sit there talking smack on us, talking s--- on us the whole time, (about) how horrible we were, (or that) we should be retired,” Ortiz said. “It’s a fight, two guys go in there and fight. One guy loses and one guy wins, but we both put on a show.

“So it’s time to pick up the cards, reshuffle, do this again and do it the right way this time."
