I do not know most of the people fighting on this card, but I have been wanting to watch the main event for a while. After 2 years away I do not see Ortega winning. Sung Jung should be getting his title shot after this win.
It's a one fight card and if TKZ doesn't gadoosh Brian Ortega there's going to be a lot of salty MMA fans tomorrow night.
The Gane fight is cancelled, too. Pretty hyped HW prospect from what I gather. They're now working on booking him against JDS.
I think Ortega has a great shot to beat KZ. I want KZ to win but I think people may be overrating him in there vs Ortega. Ortega has 1 loss in hs career and that is to Max. Other than that, he's looked damn good. I think this could end up being a situation where a lot of people forget that Ortega is better than most of that division. KZ has a handful of losses in his career.
I do not know if those thinking like me are overrating KZ, or more underrating Ortega. I really feel a guy like Sung Jung is a rough fight to come back to when you have been out of the cage for almost two years. Ortega is dangerous and has as much KO power as anyone at 145-lbs, but I worry if he can't get the fight over with quickly he will be picked apart later in the fight.
Ortega is dominating the fight so far. KZ looks like he is worried about engaging at the least.
Ortega looked like a completely different dude out there tonight. Holy shit, whatever that two years off and new training team did for him made him look super impressive. Happy for him. Hope he beats Volk. That Ortega gives Holloway a good fight. That striking discipline and game plan mix up was nice.
props to KZ, feel bad for him. Let’s get this FW division moving. Holloway v Zabit or KZ please
