Before Betting on Yair Rodriguez vs. Brian Ortega 2

Yair Rodriguez a.k.a. El Pantera is a fantastic kickboxer who lands a huge volume of powerful strikes in every fight. He’s also great when it comes to grappling and wrestling, not to mention that he’s incredibly tough.

This explains why he was given a shot at the title in his most recent fight. He fought Alexander Volkanovski but the Australian beat him by a TKO. His other two UFC losses happened to almost equally good opponents – Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar.

Brian Ortega’s story is similar. He’s a well-rounded fighter with plenty of weapons who was given a title shot against Volk in 2021. Volk beat him by decision, after five rounds of fighting.

Since then, Ortega fought only once more. It happened in 2022 against Rodriguez, which saw him injure his shoulder in the first round. It’s been a year and a half since then, which could mean that Ortega’s got some ring rust.
