Robert Downey Jr. supports Brian Ortega’s foundation as part of his ‘Random Act Funding’ organization

It’s been a good couple of weeks for Brian Ortega.

After finding out he would indeed get the next Featherweight title shot against Max Holloway later this year following his history-making knockout win over Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, “T-City” now has the backing of Robert Downey Jr.

That’s right, Iron Man himself is supporting the UFC standout’s foundation — The Brian Ortega Foundation — which is aimed at paying for one full year of jiu-jitsu tuition for a qualified individual.

The T-city Scholarship is a full-tuition scholarship for one year of training at any Certified Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Training Center in the world, including Gracie University Headquarters where Brian Ortega trains and teaches.

As you can seen in Downey’s message above, he will kick back some proceeds of his Random Act Funding organization — which this year focuses on collecting donations for ROHHAD Association — to Brian’s foundation.

You can’t get any better promotion than that.

If you donate, not only will you be helping a couple of great causes, but you will be entered for the chance win a trip for two as Robert’s guests to the premiere of “Avengers: Infinity” War” in Hollywood, California on April 23, 2018.

All you have to do is donate $10, which you can do so by clicking here.
