UFC featherweight contender Brian Ortega is counter to almost everything that is the norm for today's fighter when it comes to promoting himself.
As for when that fight will go down, that's the question UFC President Dana White was asked after the UFC 222 event concluded. He took out Swanson with a standing guillotine in the second round of their bout. Unlike Rodriguez, however, Ortega has reached this point by knocking off an increasingly more accomplished and talented collection of fighters. Edgar is known for being able to survive when he's hurt, so Ortega remained composed as he closed in for the finish. Ortega delivered punches as Edgar tried to survive. In this three round fight, "T-City" cannot afford to start off slow like he has done in the past.
He talked about the importance of fighting Frankie Edgar, a possibility of moving up weight classes, a potential fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and much more. There is something incredible about "The Natural" achieving everything he did after debuting in the sport as a 34-year-old, but it also meant that he never had the kind of 10-year run of being among the absolute best that Edgar has enjoyed. He will not be afraid to go to the ground with Ortega but should definitely avoid getting into a grappling match. Edgar covered up and clinched. He's walking good. We've got to see what his doctor says. If he ends up on his back against the wrestler, Ortega will look for some sneaky submissions from the bottom. Moments later, Cyborg scored a knockdown with her left hand, and a Kunitskaya takedown attempt came up empty, setting the stage for the Brazilian's final attack, as a right hand dropped the challenger, with a series of follow-up strikes bringing in referee Herb Dean to stop the fight at 3:25 of the opening round.
That win made him a top contender and got him a lucrative new contract with the UFC, yet he still drives his 1998 Chevy Blazer to Harbor City to train in the one-car garage of his longtime striking coach, James Luhrsen. He can not afford to start slow against this type of fighter in a three round bout. It might be one of the best clashes of styles for the title in division history.
