UFC 222 Results: Brian Ortega Emphatically KO's Frankie Edgar

06 March 2018

Well, since Ortega took out the man who was next in line for a fight with Holloway, obviously there's no doubt that he's next or a title shot.

"I just recently attended my first WWE event live when RAW was in (Los Angeles) filming and I absolutely loved the experience".

There have been no backwards steps, no unexpected losses or sluggish performances that made you think his slide from contention was starting. They admire it. They respect it. "I could've waited for the title shot".

Brian Ortega knocks out Frankie Edgar in their featherweight bout during the UFC 222 event inside T-Mobile Arena on March 3, 2018 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

While he does believe that he is next for UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, Ortega takes a very cerebral approach to the situation.

Ortega is an underdog, but he's used to the feeling. So yeah I see a future with me going up to 155. "Because I'm going to Brazil and then I have a lot of things to do". Check out the UFC 222 highlight from the Ortega vs. Edgar fight below.

It's clear what will be next for UFC women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg.

He's an extremely risky young fighter: a proven finisher that is happy to slug it out and comfortable off his back, which makes each of his fights a "pick your poison" proposition for his opponents.

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 will look to lie on Ortega and tire him out throughout the match. Be one of the faces of the sport and not only that but use the opportunity that this limelight is giving me to help people out.

"But you have some guys who try to fake the hype, try to fake the funk and try to promote something, but you can see through it".

Ortega's life picked up speed after his victory over Swanson. But he doesn't intend to forget the distance he has already traveled.

"It felt great. This is something that I've always envisioned". Now we're just hanging out at the gym.
