When Brian Ortega did the unthinkable and finished Frankie Edgar at UFC 222, he immediately used his leverage to boost the signal on a foundation and scholarship program he was starting to benefit his community. Even when he got the call that he’d get the shot against UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, he just used it as another opportunity to spread the word. Now, he’s got the power of The Avengers carrying his message.
“Wait, oh, there you are. RDJ coming at you from my Welsh command post. Two of you will be my guest at the premiere of Avengers: Infinity War on April 23rd in Hollywood, USA. I’m hearing it’s the best Avengers flick yet and I’m almost told I appear in it. But how and what must be done to join us? Donate 10 smackers, dollars, bucks, or set equivalent in US currency to Random Act Funding. The more you donate, the higher the likelihood of winning. This year’s focus will be on ROHHAD and we’ll be throwing some proceeds to the Brian Ortega Foundation as well.” — Robert Downey Jr. via his official Twitter.
