Ortiz was scheduled to face Quinton “Rampage” Jackson in early November on Bellator’s expected first pay-per-view card. He suffered a right C6 pillar fracture and risked doing permanent damage by continuing with the fight.
Both Ortiz and Bellator have expressed interest in scheduling him for a fight in 2014.
