Tito Ortiz Heads To Phoenix For Annual Blood Drive

Every summer since 2006, former UFC light heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz has cleared time from his schedule to visit Phoenix, Arizona, and work with United Blood Services on their annual blood drive, and this Saturday, July 31st, “The Huntington Beach Bad Boy” expects a bigger turnout than ever before for Ultimate Blood Drive V.

“It shows how the growth of MMA really is,” said Ortiz of the drive, which has grown from 200 donors to over 500. “The fans come out to support me and support Blood Services and it’s been growing every year. Last year we grew 10 percent more than the year before and we expect it to be even bigger this year.”

This year’s drive will take place from 9am to 2pm at the Desert Sky Mall in Phoenix, and all donors will meet Tito Ortiz, receive a personalized autographed photo and be entered into drawings for apparel from his Punishment Athletics clothing line.
