MMA Legend Tito Ortiz: Many Latinos Support Trump But Are Afraid To Say It
MMA legend Tito Ortiz is not afraid to wear his “Make America Great Again” headgear.
“I walk in a ‘Make America Great Again’ – Latinos for Trump hat,” he said Monday during an appearance on FOX Business’ “Mornings with Maria.”
In fact, the former light heavyweight champion, known as “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy,” said there were “so many” Latinos who supported Trump, but were afraid to say so.
“I think it was just over the top when he talked about the criminals coming from Mexico so far,” Ortiz said.
Ortiz said that as people learn more, Asset will strengthen the support of the Latino and black communities.
“It just gets bigger and bigger the more they learn the truth about it,” Ortiz said. “And I think the Democratic Party is showing its side, the criminals that they are and the things that they are being caught, and I hope Trump will continue to focus on that and people will be able to see it more and more every day. “
Ortiz’s relationship with Trump dates back to when he titled UFC 30 in 2001 at the Trump Taj Mahal in Atlantic City, New Jersey. It was the first fight after the Fertitta brothers bought the UFC and few entrepreneurs were ready to host the events.
Ortiz is considered one of the pioneers of the sport and has one of the greatest pay TV shoots in MMA history against his rival and Hall of Fame member Chuck Liddell to his credit.
His notoriety has earned him roles on blockbuster reality TV shows, including “The Celebrity Apprentice” formerly hosted by Trump.
Ortiz will face Alberto “El Patron” Rodriguez on December 7 in the Combate Americas pay-per-view showdown.
