Tito Ortiz Kicks Dogfighting’s Butt

Written by PETA | April 28, 2009

He’s hard on his opponents, but he has a soft touch when it comes to animals. Yep, that’s how mixed martial arts champ Tito Ortiz rolls. Recently, the tender-hearted tough guy and father of twins (with none other than PETA princess Jenna Jameson) took time out from clocking clowns in the cage to take on dogfighting. In a hard-hitting new ad for PETA, Tito encourages people to stand up to the cowards who make canines do their fighting for them. Did I mention that we’re also giving away autographed gear from Tito’s clothing line? And while we’re on the subject of kick-ass things, here’s another behind-the-scenes PETA Files exclusive interview. ‘Cuz, you know, that’s how we roll:

  • Claudia says:

    Tito Thank you so much we need more people like you to tell the world that horrendous dog fighting needs to stop!!

  • lori black says:

    Thank You so much Tito!!! I so many people love your statements. You have a choice to go in a ring fight. These poor dogs have no choice. I feel the people who force dogs to fight are true cowards in every sense of the word i know someday they will pay. but that is another story Michael Vick should go out to the publickids explain what he did was wrong make a public apology to the dogs he killedinjured as he apologized to everyone but them. Please keep on with your strong message of love for animals. all the best to you. LORI

  • dana sanders says:

    Thank you for speaking for those who can’t. That’s the making of a true star.

  • Jadey Alex says:

    So true Tito we choose to fight dogs dont if you want to see fights go see people who WANT to fight and get paid to do so! I’ve seen so many pit bull in my life played with so many of them loved many of them and been the proud ”owner” they owned me more than I owned them of 2 pit bull mix so I know that despise their genetics they are more found on cuddle and play than on fighting… THANK YOU TITO the pit bull lover that I am really appreciate the move you’re taking against dog fighting!

  • Beth Reinboth says:

    I think Tito should invite Michael Vick into the ring and give him a good A wooping. We can all witness this event and make bets. Hmmm maybe Vick will begin to understand our point of view? God bless Tito for what he is doing…What a role model!!!!!!!
