Brian Ortega Analysis: Recovered from injury and ready for the rematch

Since 2014, Brian Ortega (15-3) holds a 7-3-0-1 record in the UFC. He’s had multiple chances to win the championship, but his most recent attempt was ruined more than one year and a half earlier when he injured his shoulder fighting Yair Rodriguez. He hasn’t competed in the octagon in nearly 20 months, so he’ll be hoping for a victory that would cement his title. Ortega has a reach of 69 inches and stands 5’8″. Before his most recent battle, Brian Ortega was in excellent shape, therefore everyone was disappointed with how it turned out. It would be fascinating to learn how mobile Ortega is following his injury as it has been about 20 months since his last appearance in the octagon. When it relates to recovering from an injury, it’s nothing to laugh at, and Ortega’s adjustment to the higher altitude will be even more difficult. Anticipate him to focus on his jiu-jitsu during this battle.

 

Yair Rodriguez Analysis: Looking to gain ground for the title

Yair Rodriguez (18-4) boasts a 10-3-0-1 record in the UFC and has developed into one of the world’s most lethal featherweight fighters. After his unfortunate first-round victory against Brian Ortega, he defeated Josh Emmett to secure the title of the Interim Champion. He did, however, give up the championship to Volkanovski and is set to resume his run. Rodriguez has a 71-inch reach and is 5’11”. Alexander Volkanovski’s defeat as champion creates an opportunity for Yair Rodriguez to realize his title goals once more. Apart from Volk, he’s perhaps been the finest competitor in this class, and he’s already defeated Brian Ortega. Rodriguez showed to be a more resilient fighter that evening and emerged uninjured, even though the victory was decided on the basis of injuries. After winning and preparing in his native Mexico for this bout, he will have a significant psychological edge against Ortega.
