His coach Rener Gracie has some kind words for him, “When we arrived at the hospital, the first thing you said was ‘I’m sorry.' My brother, you have nothing to be sorry about. You came from nothing and you competed on the highest level against one of the best p4p fighter’s in the world. For four rounds, you took his best shots, but you never went down and you never stopped firing back. The heart you displayed last night could never be taught, and I’ve never been so proud to be your coach, your friend and your fan. You didn’t fail, Max prevailed. And if it was ever possible to win in defeat, you did it last night.”
For the fans, Brian Ortega is always a pleasure to watch in the Octagon. He is a fine Jiu Jitsu practitioner and martial artist. His coach Rener definitely displays a high level of class that is an inspiration. We wish Brian a speedy recovery and thank him for a beautiful display of skill and heart.
