Tito Ortiz Pulled In A Massive Fortune For Betting Against Ronda Rousey In UFC 207, Posts Winnings To Instagram



Tito Ortiz’s UFC days are behind him. But, the 41-year-old former UFC lightweight heavyweight champion and UFC Hall of Famer is one of the richest fighters the sport has ever seen, amassing a $15 million fortune during his career. He’s also raking in paychecks as the CEO of the Punishment Athletics MMA equipment and clothing line.

Ortiz closed out his 2016 with a hefty payday by betting that Amanda Nunes exceptional striking would be too much for Ronda Rousey to combat in UFC 207. Forty eight seconds after the bell rang last Friday, Ortiz’s $50,000 gamble proved to be a good one–like $77,500 good. He took to Instagram to brag about his winnings, accompanied with the caption, “You have to love easy bets! #ufc207”

Ortiz joins the ranks of famed gambler “Vegas Dave” who won $240,000 by betting $20,000 Holly Holm would best Ronda Rousey last year.

I should have emptied out all $72 in my account to throw it on Nunes. Another missed opportunity. Oh well, new year, new me.
