UFC featherweight Brian Ortega the newest face of Modelo (Video)

Life is good for Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) featherweight contender, Brian Ortega, despite getting thrashed by reigning division kingpin, Max Holloway, in the UFC 231 pay-per-view (PPV) event last December in Toronto.

That’s because “T-City” is setting up shop in “Tinseltown” to train the Hollywood elite, like actress Halle Berry, and is now drinking beer with his boys in this latest ad for Modelo. And to be fair, they make some pretty good suds.

Ortega, 28, joins Stipe Miocic and Diego Sanchez under the Modelo umbrella and will likely return to the Octagon later this year. The Mexican-American standout recently had surgery to repair damage from his “Blessed” beatdown.

Despite his last showing, Ortega (14-1, 1 NC) is still ranked No. 2 in the division, behind former 145-pound kingpin, Jose Aldo. There’s a pretty solid chance these two will hook ‘em up sooner, rather than later.

If and when that happens, who would you take?
