UFC 222: LA native Brian Ortega ready for ‘legend’ Frankie Edgar
Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega considers himself a blessed man.
And … why not?
Ortega (13-0), an LA native, will fight the ‘legend’ Edgar after original opponent, featherweight champion Max Holloway, bowed out because of an injury.
Ortega, who brilliantly dispatched Cub Swanson during UFC Fight Night 123, quickly accepted Saturday’s fight to keep the card alive and will share the main event with Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya for the women’s featherweight title.
