Tito Ortiz was born to Joyce and Samuel Ortiz in 1975 in Huntington Beach, California. His childhood was really difficult because both of his parents are heroin addictive. He did not receive appropriate care and education, which led him to joining a street gang and drugs use. He was once placed in juvenile halls and saw his parents divorced at the age of 13. Ortiz lived with his mother until the age of 18, before he was forced to move out and earn for a living himself.

When Ortiz was in high school, he excelled at sports especially wrestling. He won a CIF championship and finished fourth in the state tournament. He met his old coach by chance when he was nineteen. This coach was a head coach at Golden West College so he convinced Ortiz to go to college and follow wrestling path. With his IQ of 90, Ortiz was still able to enroll in Golden West, where he won the championship for California junior college state and All-American for two years in a row. He transferred to California State University at Bakersfield then and started training with UFC fighter and fellow collegiate wrestler.

Ortiz started mixed martial arts since college when he competed for no prize money or contracts. He defeated Wes Albritton, Jeremy Screeton (West Coast NHB Championships 1), Jerry Bohlander (UFC 18) Guy Mezger (UFC 19).

Bas Rutten is Ortiz's source of inspiration from the very beginning of his career. Ortiz said Bas was his idol and he always looked up to Bas Rutten. Bas helped Ortiz believe in his dream and make every effort to practice and take part in championships.

Ortiz was selected as top contender for UFC Light Heavyweight 1999. He won over Wanderlei Silva, Yuki Kondo, Evan Tanner, Elvis Sinosic, Vladimir Matyushenko and Ken Shamrock at UFC. He was crowned champ five times in 3 years after UFC 25. Ortiz took some time off UFC before he returned and pulled off a victory over Patrick Côté at UFC 50.

Since 2005, Ortiz stayed focus on business and left the UFC. He received many deals such as PRIDE Fighting Championships and Don King-backed World Fighting Alliance. He made investment in new league but this endeavor came to no fruition. Ortiz then signed with Total Nonstop Action to become a guest referee.
Ortiz became a coach The Ultimate Fighter 3 reality TV series on Spike TV since 2005. He returned to UFC 59 and won over Forrest Griffin via split decision. Ortiz beat a UFC Hall of Famer Ken Shamrock 3 times in 2006. Even though he took time away from UFC, he proved that his talent remained unchanged.

Ortiz did not resign the contract with UFC and left in 2008. He came back a year later when his relationship with Dana White improved. He was announced to be the coach opposing Chuck Liddell for the 11th season of The Ultimate Fighter. In 2011, his victory over Ryan Bader became the first victory since 2006 which saved his UFC career and brought him “Submission of the Night” honors.
