Wearing a T-shirt with the “Trump Pence Keep America Great 2020” slogan, American mixed martial artist Tito Ortiz happily took pics with agents at a U.S. Border Patrol station in Texas, some even asked him to sign their handcuffs.
While in McAllen, Texas, for his big Combate Americas fight with Alberto El Patron on Saturday, Dec. 7, Ortiz, who is a very outspoken fan of President Trump’s immigration policies, decided to meet with the people at the Border Patrol. And they loved him.
The agents lined up to take pics with the fighter and asked for autographs. Ortiz even gave a motivational speech about overcoming adversity.
Meanwhile, his opponent Alberto El Patron, who dislikes Trump, choked out a POTUS impersonator on a Spanish language TV show.
The two have gone back-and-forth in interviews trash-talking each other. So, when they came face-to-face at the weigh-ins they got into it as they pushed each other several times and had to be separated.

Ortiz has a close friendship with the Trump family. He was invited to visit the president after a private lunch with Don Jr. and Eric Trump in October. During lunch, Ortiz invited the whole family to his Dec. 7 fight, according to TMZ.
The Trump brothers also told Ortiz their dad would love to see him—”So, a trip to the White House is officially in the works!”
