Tito ortiz who is he dating
Despite their love/hate relationship over the years, there is still some mutual respect between Tito Ortiz and current Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) president Dana White.
And the fact that White sent a text message to Tito’s girlfriend, Amber Nichole Miller, a former UFC Octagon girl to relay to Ortiz congratulating him on his first round submission win over Chael Sonnen at Bellator 170 last night (Sat., Jan.. "The Huntington Beach Bad Boy" broke down the gist of the message to ESPN shortly after his victory. She used to work for UFC and they always talk back and forth.
His parents divorced when he was thirteen years old, and his mother took the young Ortiz with her back to Huntington Beach.
When he was only seven years old, Ortiz supported himself by selling fish that he caught at a local pier and later attended Huntington Beach High School, where he began wrestling during his sophomore year.
At the age of nineteen, Ortiz ran into an old high school wrestling coach, a future UFC fighter and the head wrestling coach at Golden West College, Paul Herrera, who encouraged him to enroll in the college.
Ortiz then began attending Golden West, where he was a California junior college state champion and All-American for two consecutive years before transferring California State University at Bakersfield, where he continued wrestling but was never a full-time starter.
When Ortiz was eighteen years old, his mother kicked him out of the house and he began living with one of his brothers while doing labor work, and later became addicted to methamphetamines.When I first signed with Bellator, Dana sent me focus mitts with his face on it and said, ‘If this doesn’t motivate you, nothing will.’ So I guess it’s that love/hate relationship we have toward each other.But, thank you Dana for the text, saying that’s the way I should go out, on top. I always just fought for what I wanted for my career.On July 7, 2012, Ortiz became the ninth inductee into the UFC Hall of Fame.He has recorded victories over many notable fighters, including Wanderlei Silva, Vitor Belfort, Forrest Griffin, Ryan Bader, Evan Tanner, Chael Sonnen, and Ken Shamrock, whom he defeated three times.
