stehilton94 Posted July 20, 2018 Report Share Posted July 20, 2018 He was on Below the Belt with Brendan "Eskimo brother" Schaub. Explained how UFC refused to give him anything because he was not willing to take a last minute replacement after Max pulled out. Ortega did all his media obligations including the Spanish part of it. Weight cut was also done. Ortega didn't want to fight any fight but the fight for the belt, which I have to agree with, it is not up to him to save a card or throw his title shot away because Max didn't show up, some fighters will step up, some won't, you cannot hate on that. Imagine winning 14 in a row, getting your title shot, and a few days out being told nah, he out, fight this guy and if you lose thats your chance gone, it takes a special type of guy to accept that. So what is your opinion? I can see all the keyboard warriors smashing their keyboards "Hes a fighter, he has to fight blah blah blah". He recieved 0 money and has had to pay his camp. Ortega was also happy to fight anyone for the real belt, not just Max, and they suggest the interim belt, which actually comes with no financial benefit and no real reason to exist. 6 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
