Victor Ortiz took to twitter last night to ask Brandon Rios for the fight. After Brandon Rios' quick win over a barely-present Mike Alvarado on Saturaday, Brandon Rios mentioned Ortiz's name, amoungst others, as those who he'd like to see in the ring next. Apparently it didn't take long for word to spread to Victor, who then took to twitter.

Brandon Rios quickly shot back at Ortiz with the following message and retweet:

Now - I have to say that I've personally been waiting on an Ortiz-Rios fight for about as long as a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight. The bad blood and personal histories between the two are multi-dimensional and run deep. It's also not very often that we get to see a match between two individuals who have a real personal beef with each other (one that isn't just manufactured for the promotion). The last one I can think of was between Oscar De La Hoya and Fernando Vargas. This would make for a great fight (for as long as it would last) and I'd anticipate it about as highly as any other fight that can be made out there.

Who else would love to see Victor Ortiz and Brandon Rios finally settle their differences in the squared circle?
