Anaheim Ducks and Tito Ortiz on Greer’s OC TV


I was lucky enough to meet the Ducks and UFC’s Tito Ortiz at their annual Meet the Team event. Tuesday Night Fight Night was a blast at Bluewater Grill in Tustin while fans tested their Wii boxing skills against the entire Ducks team, including fan favorites Teemu Selanne, Ryan Getzlaf, Corey Perry and Bobby Ryan and special guest Tito Ortiz.

All proceeds from the evening benefited the Anaheim Ducks Foundation and Register Charities.
