Early Life: Jacob Christopher “Tito” Ortiz was born on January 23rd of 1975 in Huntington Beach, California. At age five, Ortiz moved to Santa Ana, California where he was raised alongside three older half-brothers. He was given the nickname “Tito” by his father when he was just a one-year-old. Tito’s childhood was not easy. Both of his parents were addicted to heroin and he quickly became involved with local gangs. With little to no support from his parents, Tito survived by catching and selling fish at a local pier. He soon started using a number of drugs, including cocaine and PCP. He was also in and out of juvenile hall throughout his early youth.

At nineteen, Ortiz was encouraged to go to college by Paul Herrera, his former wrestling coach. Following his mentor’s guidance, Tito enrolled at Golden West College and joined the wrestling team, winning more championships. After transferring to California State University, Tito continued with his wrestling career but gravitated more towards mixed martial arts.

Career: Ortiz first fought in the UFC in 1997 as an amateur. He soon gained widespread attention after winning his first fight, but later lost his second match against Guy Mezger. He then beat Jerry Bohlander, who was a top-ranked fighter at the time. In 1999, Ortiz was ready to challenge Frank Shamrock for the UFC Light Heavyweight title, but he lost via submission.
