Brian Ortega Would Like To Meet The Former 145-Pound King Jose Aldo Next
Brian Ortega last stepped inside the octagon in the main event of UFC 231, on December 8, 2018, where he took part in a fantastic fight against current Featherweight champion Max Holloway. Ortega lost the bout via TKO because the doctor didn’t let him continue after the fourth round. “T-City” was badly beaten and suffered nasty injuries in this match.
Brian Ortega received a prolonged 6-month medical suspension and later underwent surgery to fix the broken nose.
But despite he still recovers from injuries, the former RTC and RFA 145-pound title holder Ortega already targets the potential rival for his next fight. He is interested in meeting the former Featherweight WEC and UFC champion Jose Aldo.
“Whichever makes sense to get me closer to the title,” BRIAN Ortega told FanSided when asked who he wants to fight next. “I’ve never had anything personal against anyone of these guys. I always chase the title and the fights that will make me the number one guy in the world. Right now, the only fight that makes sense is [Jose] Aldo. We both lost to Max and we’re number one and two. He beat everyone else and I beat everyone else. It’s just me and you. Unless you want to fight down — and that’s fine — but I want to fight up.”
In January of this year, Jose Aldo stated he intended to fight three more times in Brazil and hang up his gloves by the end of 2019.
Jose Aldo finished Renato Moicano via second-round TKO in the co-main event of UFC Fortaleza, on February 2, 2019. A few days later, Aldo’s coach and manager Andre Pederneiras said Alexander “The Great” Volkanovski sounded like a perfect rival for “Scarface”. So, for now, all cards are opened.
