#TFGinterview: Brian Ortega talks UFC 222, Possibility of moving up to Lightweight, dream match with Khabib Nurmagomedov and more


The current UFC featherweight and lightweight champions are always good for a one-liner or two, but after UFC 222's co-main event featuring Frankie Edgar and Brian Ortega, Holloway and McGregor showed their support for the former lightweight champion, who suffered his first stoppage loss in 29 professional fights.

UFC featherweight contender Brian Ortega is counter to almost everything that is the norm for today's fighter when it comes to promoting himself.

The first round started off with "T-City" taking a tentative approach against the experienced Edgar. Why haven't they even provided an image of Kunitskaya on the official UFC website?

It's clear what will be next for UFC women's featherweight champion Cris Cyborg. Ortega remained composed through the fight and was waiting for the right opportunity to launch his strikes. "I kept pursuing it and I go, okay, he's really rocked; I'm going to try to finish him".

"I train all the time, so I took this fight on short notice, but I felt very prepared", Justino said.

Anderson is a true featherweight, but she hasn't fought in quite awhile.

"Amanda, she's the champion at 135", Cyborg said (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting).

Liverpool stun Newcastle at Anfield as Manchester United drops to third
Jurgen Klopp thinks Liverpool miss Philippe Coutinho but he is glad that his side aren't showing that they miss him on the pitch. But any frustration was eased five minutes before the break when Salah made the most of his first clear-cut chance.

If I could paint a picture my career it would be, me fighting Edgar, beating Edgar, winning the 145-pound belt and if Khabib is the 155 champion, I think it would be a dream matchup.

O'Malley (10-0), who joined the UFC previous year, left the arena floor on a stretcher with his lower leg in a makeshift cast, but only after giving a charming post-fight interview while flat on the canvas in palpable pain. "My foot went numb and I can't feel it".

"I don't know what happened", O'Malley said from his back.

Elsewhere on the show, longtime UFC veteran heavyweights squared off in #10 Stefan Struve and #12 Andrei Arlovski.

Instead of attacking O'Malley's obviously damaged leg in the final round, Soukhamthath made a decision to take the fight to the ground, and it very likely cost him the win.

#6 Ketlen Vieira earned one of the biggest wins of her career in defeating former UFC title challenger and #6-ranked Cat Zingano.
