The former UFC light heavyweight champion tore down the house at Bellator 120 with a quick submission victory over Bellator middleweight champion Alexander Shlemenko in Ortiz's first bout in nearly two years. Referee John McCarthy waved off the fight at 2:27 of the first round.

After the bout, a fired-up Ortiz (17-11-1) took on his detractors.
