In 1997, future UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Tito Ortiz made his mixed-martial arts debut. At the same time, Saved By The Bell‘s Tiffani Amber-Thiessen had thoroughly taken over Beverly Hills, 90210. These days, Thiessen—she dropped the Amber in 2000—is working on a new pilot for USA, and Ortiz has published a memoir, This Is Gonna Hurt. Both Cali residents were born on January 23rd.
