Max Holloway Annihilates Brian Ortega Wins By Doctor’s Stoppage TKO

UFC 231 Pay-Per-view event took place last night (Dec 8, 2018) from inside the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

The main headlined bout features a featherweight title fight between division’s kingpin Max Holloway looking to defend his title against undefeated contender Brian ‘T City’ Ortega.

Max Holloway (19-3 MMA) last fought at UFC 218 in December of 2017, where he scored a TKO win over former champion Jose Aldo for a second time.

Meanwhile, undefeated Brian Ortega enters into this showdown with a record of 14-0. “T-City” last competed at UFC 222 event back in March, where he became the first fighter to finish former lightweight champion, Frankie Edgar.

The Hawaii native squared off against Ortega in a thrilling four-round war. The dangerous Ortega overcame the storm and attacked before Holloway found success and won the fight.

The fight turned into Ortega’s favor by the third round as he fearlessly attacked. Holloway weathered the storm, by the time the horn buzzed and round ended.

Ortega made it to the fourth round in which he took a lot of brutal beating, but the cage-side physician calls off the fight, meaning it goes a TKO victory at 5:00 of round four for Holloway.

With the win, Holloway now won 13 consecutive fights, with his last loss came in 2013 against former UFC lightweight and featherweight champion Conor McGregor via decision.

Holloway indicated he’d be open to moving up in a lightweight division.

“I made the weight, I made it look easy,” Ortega said. “Dana White I want to be number one pound for pound, there are some guys at ‘55, let’s do it.”

After the loss, Ortega is now 14-1.
