Despite suffering the first loss of his pro-career at UFC 231 over the weekend, challenger Brian Ortega revealed that he agrees with the doctor’s stoppage.
If it wasn’t already clear, there’s not an MMA fan on the planet today who isn’t aware of the sheer toughness that Brian Ortega brings with him to the octagon.
A warrior in every sense of the word, ‘T-City’ kept the pressure on the featherweight champion Max Holloway until the damage he received was so exacerbated that the ring-side doctor was forced to call it a day.
Taking to his official Instagram page, Ortega made it clear that he agrees with the decision to cut the fight short as the fifth-round was due to begin.
He might not have won this time around but make no mistake, he lost very little in the way of momentum after this performance.
Ortega will be back, but sometimes these warriors need to be saved from their own toughness.
