Derek Brunson hilariously takes down Tito Ortiz for resigning as mayor of Huntington Beach


Former UFC light-heavyweight champion Tito Ortiz recently stepped down as mayor pro tempore of Huntington Beach City

Ortiz ran for the city council seat in Huntington Beach City. He had received more than 42000 votes and was sworn in as Mayor Pro Tem of Huntington Beach City.

Hardly 6 months later, he has stepped down from his post due to a barrage of public attacks and a fear for his family’s safety.

His reign was marred with controversy, with Ortiz openly refusing to wear a mask since he was ‘anti-mask’. He had also filed for unemployment in February despite being in office.

On the 1st of June he announced that he was resigning.

Following his resignation, UFC middleweight Derek Brunson brutally trolled Ortiz for not being able to even last 6 months as the Mayor.

Posting the resignation video of Ortiz, Brunson captioned the post:

“When you apply for a chef job , get the job then realize you can’t cook.”

It is worth noting that Ortiz still intends to fight. He last fought at Combate Americas 51, where he defeated Alberto del Rio via. submission.

Derek Brunson is expected to face Darren Till on the 14th of August

Darren Till will be making a return to the UFC on the 14th of August to face Derek Brunson. The event might be held in England, but according to reports from Ariel Helwani, it might be moved to America, if the pandemic restrictions make it impossible.

This will be Brunson’s second fight of 2021, after he put on a clinic against Kevin Holland in March.

A win would give both a major boost for getting a shot at the middleweight title.
