MAX "BLESSED" HOLLOWAY (19-3 MMA, 15-3 UFC) vs BRIAN "T-CITY" ORTEGA (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) is one of the best fights of 2018 and arguably one of the best fights in recent years. Two fighters on very impressive streaks, both just hitting their primes and both with unbelievable skill sets. Stylistically this fight is a must see. Holloway is riding a 12 fight win streak dating back to 2014 and has some big wins over names like Charles Oliveira, Jeremy Stephens, Cub Swanson, Ricardo Lamas, former champ Anthony Pettis and most recently 2 dominating performances over long time Featherweight king Jose Aldo. He has consistently improved and excelled with every performance culminating in many people already claiming he could be one of the greatest 145ers in history. In Ortega, he might have met his equal. T-City is undefeated as an MMA fighter and 6-0 in the UFC. In his short UFC run he has defeated UFC veterans including Cub Swanson, Diego Brandao and Clay Guida. However his most impressive victory came in his last bout where he became the first fighter to finish the ever durable Frankie Edgar. Both fighters are excellent in their craft. Holloway seems to have the advantage in this one, he is definitely the better striker and with the highest takedown defense in the UFC He should be able to implement his long rangey striking and keep Ortega on the end of his punches. Ortega though has developed a reputation as a guy who can finish you at any moment, as a guy who will fight through adversity and come out with the win. These two represent the new age of MMA both inside and outside the ring. They carry themselves with dignity and respect and because of that they have become fan favourites. No matter who wins today, the UFC and MMA fans will be the real winners and the future looks bright for both fighters. I don't think this will be the last time these 2 see each other across the octagon. Enjoy this one guys and girls.
