The only 2 chances Ortega has had to lift UFC gold and both Holloway and Volkanovski gave Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega an absolute thrashing.
We learned a few things though from both those fights:
He doesn’t quit and continuously walks forward like a zombie.
His chin is rock solid.
If he gets a hold of you, regardless of what stage the fight is at, you’d better start praying or wriggling like Volk did.
I have no doubt Ortega will make it back up to title contender again and will probably have to face Volkanovski, I’ve never seen Alex in as much trouble trying to get out of that triangle..
So what can Ortega do differently? He looked so impressive against the Korean zombie but then Volkanovski came along and made the same fight look like a mis-match..
