Tito Ortiz is thrilled to be an honorary sheriff in his new home in South Florida.

Tito swore to be a good boy

Despite being known in the MMA world as “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy,” Ortiz is now ready to embark on a new chapter in his life but this time, as a good boy. On social media, the former UFC light heavyweight champion proudly announced that he was sworn in as an honorary sheriff for Lee County in Southwest Florida.

“Feeling incredibly honored!” Ortiz wrote on Instagram. “Yesterday, I was sworn in as an honorary sheriff for Lee County by the amazing Sheriff Carmine Marceno. I’m beyond grateful for this privilege and so proud to serve in my new home of Cape Coral. Here’s to new beginnings and making a positive impact in our community!”

“I am deeply humbled by this privilege and have immense respect for our brave men and women in blue, not just in Cape Coral, but across the entire United States,” he continued. “Their dedication and commitment inspire me every day. Proud to be a part of this community and to support our law enforcement heroes!”

Slowly getting back up

It can be recalled that Ortiz faced some serious financial perils before moving to Florida back in his hometown in California. He filed for unemployment following a series of conflicts with the Huntington Beach City Council.

Now that Ortiz has found a new home in Florida, he is also evidently looking forward to a new beginning in his life.

Ortiz last fought professionally in 2019 when he submitted Alberto Rodriguez at Combate Americas. He finished his MMA career with a 21-12-1 record.
