Watch Dana White call Brian Ortega: ‘You're getting that title shot’ (Video)

New, 22 comments

The contracts haven’t been signed just yet, but Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight champion Max Holloway has agreed to fight top division contender Brian Ortega. Not surprisingly, “T-City” is on board with that plan, and now we have promotion president Dana White to make it official.

Bigger than Conor McGregor vs. Jose Aldo? This guy thinks so.

Ortega (14-0, 1 NC) punched his ticket to a 145-pound title shot -- and kept his undefeated record intact — by smashing former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar in the UFC 222 pay-per-view (PPV) co-main event last weekend in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Watch the highlights here.

Holloway (19-3), meanwhile, is recovering from a recent leg injury and expects to be ready for that summer sizzle, right after he’s done with his two-strips meal. “Blessed” is riding a 12-fight win streak with nine finishes, making this one of the best featherweight fights in recent memory.

All we have to do is make it another few months without injury.
