Former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz has never been one to stay silent when it comes to conspiracy theories, but this new one may have sunk the former champion to an all-time low.
Ortiz, when commenting on the tragic death of George Floyd, brought up that Floyd’s passing may be linked to a conspiracy that involved presidential candidate Joe Biden and that Floyd died from a heart condition and not from suffocation.

Harry Davies of Bloody Elbow provided the following transcript of what Ortiz said in the video:
“All of a sudden when [Joe] Biden said, ‘If you don’t vote for me you ain’t black.’ What’s the best way to do it? Oh yeah, let’s just go and let an officer supposed kill a black guy. You know he died from a heart condition right? It wasn’t suffocation. I mean it’s not right, I’m not saying it’s right. It was completely wrong. The cop should have never did that, but the cop that got arrested doesn’t look nothing like the cop that did it. Crazy. The only reason I say this sh-t is because I speak the truth.”
The fighter, when questioned about his conspiracy theory, would post the following on Instagram, including a #blacklivesdontmatter hashtag on the second Instagram post:
