Bio: Family Plus Ethnicity
Brian Ortega was born on 21st February in 1991 in California, USA. His father was an undocumented immigrant, who was originally from Hermosillo, Mexico, whereas his mother came to the US to seek a better future.
In his family, Brian has one younger brother named Chris Ortega and two sisters.
Growing up, the UFC fighter faced unpleasant circumstances in his life as both of his sisters were struggling with addiction (one to methamphetamine and the other to alcohol). Since his parents were busy feeding the family by working more than two jobs, the matter got worse.
On top of that, the fighter was not in the good shape himself; he was expelled from his high school more than four times and was even jailed.
However, things took a U-turn after Brian faced a horrifying scenario. While he was returning home, one day, after getting out on bail, he came across a woman in the street. She was under the influence of drugs. A little approach to the woman made him realize that she was no other but, his own sister.
He took her home and a violent fight among him and his sisters erupted. Keeping the rage aside, when he saw his mother crying and his sisters choking onto each others neck, he couldn't ignore his pitiful life. Thereon, he decided to turn things around and get his life in order.
Career Start, Charity
