Brian Ortega V. Max Holloway Fight Is Tomorrow Night!!!
Exploring the bout…
Submission ace Brian Ortega is pitted against Max Holloway this Saturday night. Brian has 13 wins and 1 no contest on his record. He has torn through the 145 pound division including Clay Guida, Cub Swanson and Frankie Edgar. Of his 15 wins, 7 are by knockout and 3 are by submission. Brian has his black belt in Jiu Jitsu. He started training Brazilian Jiu Jitsu in Torrance, California under Rorion, Ryron, Rener and Ralek Gracie.
Rener Gracie had some kind words for his student. It’s no surprise he is where he is. He’s always up for a challenge. He’s got a spirit that … it just gets the job done.” He continues, “His resiliency and his ability to adapt to discomfort, it’s an attribute that only the best have, and I knew it from when he was 13, 14 years old.”

Rener expanded on the MMA Hour Show, “Anyone who knows Brian from that era knows that Brian already won the title. To have made it out of the challenges he faced and the difficult circumstances for him and his family that he faced early on and really the life that he lived, which was not by any means a positive one by conventional standards. For Brian to have made it out of what he was involved with and to now be competing as a professional athlete on the level that he’s competing at, he already won. So for me, I look at this and I’m like, this is all extra.”
Brian will certainly have his hands full with Max Holloway. Max has 22 wins and 3 losses. He defeated the great Jose Aldo twice. He also holds wins over Anthony Pettis, Cub Swanson, Ricardo Lamas and Jeremy Stephens. Max had this to say about Brian, “He’s good. He’s a dangerous man, but everybody keeps talking about Brian and this and that. Everything the guy did, I did better. He’s on what, a six-fight win streak? I got 12. He beat a champion? I beat two — and I beat one of them twice. So at the end of the day, the ‘Blessed’ express is going around in a circle. We’re lapping you, bro. And I’m younger than you, so congratulations.” The last fight Max lost was to Conor McGregor. It is interesting to note that is the only decision victory of Conor’s career.
The bout should prove to be an exciting. Brian’s impressive record couple with his submissions skills makes him a worthy challenger. They both bring the aggressive street wise mentality coupled with an extremely capable skill set. It is definitely a fight not to be missed.
