UFC featherweight contender Brian Ortega puts his family first in every aspect of his life due to his rough upbringing. His success in the UFC has given him the possibility to offer a better lifestyle to his family.
Ortega recently surprised his father with a brand new truck and a mariachi band with the support of his family and friends. In an emotional moment, Orega reveals that he totaled his dad’s truck when he was younger and his dream was to buy him a new one. He filmed the entire process and uploaded the video on his YouTube channel.
Everything seems to be trending upward in Ortega’s personal life but also in his UFC career. He recently won his first fight since losing to Max Holloway in December of 2018. Ortega defeated Chan Sung Jung by unanimous decision after out brawling him for most of the fight and proving that he is the superior striker. After that performance, he might be next in line for a title shot at featherweight against the champion Alex Volkanovski. This would be Ortega’s second shot at realizing his lifelong dream of becoming a UFC champion.
