Video: Alex Volkanovski grapples with Brian Ortega’s snake on TUF 29

Alex Volkanovski has a new training partner to prepare him for Brian Ortega’s jiu-jitsu.

Alex Volkanovski gets a hand on jiu-jitsu lesson from Brian Ortega’s snake on season 29 of The Ultimate Fighter (TUF 29).

Volk’s team was startled by the slithering serpents, but Australia’s UFC Featherweight champion played along with the gag.
