LOS ANGELES – On Saturday, it seems Brian Ortega will finally get his chance to take home a UFC title.
Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) was expected to challenge current champ Max Holloway (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) early this year before a bizarre bout with concussion-like symptoms forced “Blessed” to withdraw from the bout on fight week.
The matchup has been rescheduled for this week in the UFC 231 main event at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.
Holloway is unquestionably one of the best fighters on the planet, but Ortega is undefeated for a reason. Can he keep his perfect record intact?
Ortega today sat down with media members in Los Angeles to talk about the buildup (again) to the biggest fight of his career.
Ahead of UFC 231, and before fight week kicks into high gear in Canada, check out the full media lunch with Ortega in the video above.
