He finished in the college before me. He wisely used his opportunities, and I am always jealous of him. I’m still convinced he has a remarkable career to run.” ChaelSonnen said.

The 39-year-old fighter, who wrestled for the University of Oregon, moved from 177 pounds to 190 pounds to face Ortiz, who competed for Cal State Bakersfield. “The Gangster from West Linn” pinned Ortiz in 44 seconds in their Jan. 23, 1998 match, a date which also happened to be Ortiz’s birthday.

Sonnen who has been out on a two years suspension having tested positive for a banned substance is now ready to make his comeback to the arena that made him a champion.

The former UFC champion is thought to be nursing a comeback as he has been admitted for drug testing with the United States anti-doping agency (USADA) which is the norm for fighters who may have retired but still desire some feel of the action at the Octagon.

Sonnen who has already tested twice under UFC drug testing policy asked to be enrolled into the drug testing pool as enforced by USADA. According to UFC officials: “He requested to be enrolled in the registered testing pool as he is contemplating a return to competition.”
