Featherweight champion at UFC 212, Max Holloway, will fight against Brian Ortega at UFC 231 on December. Holloway initially faced Ortega in UFC 226 last July, but Holloway resigned for medical reasons, precisely because of a concussion and had to be hospitalized, a few days before the event. Finally, these two fighters can meet again in UFC 231 on December 8, 2018, at Scotiabank Arena, Toronto. Both are players who have great opportunities to win in this match. Here are some reviews about Holloway and Ortega as a consideration for the upcoming UFC 231 predictions!
Jerome Max Keli’i Holloway is an American mixed martial arts athlete. He was born in Hawaii, December 4, 1991. At UFC 212 he defeated Jose Aldo and became the Featherweight Championship champion. The match which took place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, was successfully won by Holloway in the third round with TKO. The UFC 212 match illustrates Holloway’s career, with a slow start and a great finish.
The fighter with the nickname Max “Blessed” Holloway said he was no longer fighting to make money but to maintain his champion title. Holloway said he wanted to be like Demetrious Johnson, the winner of the Flyweight Championship since 2012, who was always motivated to continue to defend his belt. It did take a long time for Max Holloway to win the Featherweight Championship belt, but Holloway never complained and continued to practice and fight to achieve the title. He is not a whiny fighter who asks for opportunities to compete.
Brian Ortega is an American fighter. The man whose real name is Brian Martin Ortega was born on February 21, 1991, and is currently the number one competitor of the UFC
feather division. The fighter who mastered Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu managed to defeat Frankie Edgar through the first round. For this victory, he managed to achieve Performance of the Night at UFC 222 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Ortega, who has the nickname T-City, said that he did not use fear, fear made him unable to live and do the things he wanted. According to him, someone must be confident to live better and happier. Ortega’s attitude that was not fearful was what eventually became a feather class fighter no. 1 after defeating Edgar.
Continuing the review above, it is clear that both have their advantages. The upcoming match will be a fierce battle between Holloway and Ortega. They both have strengths and strong will in this UFC 2018. After being defeated by Ortega on the UFC 222 yesterday and seeing Holloway’s appearance in the film, Frankie Edgar, a former Lightweight champion, revealed his predictions for the upcoming match.
He said, Holloway was a champion, he had good reach, and, of course, he would not lose competitiveness with Ortega. Edgar continued that Holloway would try and do his best to win in the upcoming match. Same purpose but different style, Ortega will also always find a way to win. In the past game, he had lost to Clay Guida and Renato, but he did not give up and still found a way to win. Of course, that cannot be considered trivial. It seems, along with loyal UFC fans, Edgar is also looking forward to the match between Holloway and Ortega. Just wait and see who is the winner at the upcoming UFC 231. Good luck Holloway and Ortega!
