Tito Ortiz Warns ‘It’s Going To Get Worse’ After Home Is Burglarized
Tito Ortiz’s safe was stolen and he said it’s only going to get worse.
According to Huntington Beach Police, the former UFC champion’s house was burglarized. On Friday, Ortiz was away when the suspects apparently broke a window to get inside.
Police said his house was “ransacked” when they responded to the scene.
“Welcome to Biden’s America,” Ortiz said in a statement to TMZ. “Beware, it’s going to get worse.”
The 47-year-old made his return to combat sports – and debut in boxing – last September when he faced fellow former UFC champion Anderson Silva.
Ortiz was knocked out cold in the first round.
Before that brutal defeat, Ortiz was once known as one of the greatest light heavyweights in UFC history. He won the light heavyweight title against Wanderlei Silva at UFC 25.
Ortiz went on to become one of the sport’s early stars. He became a huge pay-per-view draw for his fights with Chuck Liddell, Forrest Griffin and Ken Shamrock.
He was inducted into the UFC Hall of Fame in 2012.
Then eight years later, the former fighter was named to the Huntington Beach City Council as Mayor pro tempore. But he resigned six months later on June 1, 2021.
