Although ‘T City’ was able to find moments of success but Holloway’s strikes were too much to handle, as ‘Blessed’ ended up setting a UFC record for most strikes landed in a single contest.
Due to of damage sustained in the fight, Ortega was put on medical suspension for 180 days by Ontario commission officials or seek a physician clearance for competition.
In all fairness, Ortega absorbs severe beating at the hands of Holloway, but he stood like a tough man. At the conclusion of the contest, Ortega’s face was unrecognizable.
But if you look at his recent Instagram post where he shared a photo of him, that shows he continues to show recovery like X-Men character Wolverine.
