UFC 231 (Holloway vs Ortega): Odds and Predictions
Max Holloway returns to the octagon this Saturday (Dec. 8th) to defend his title at UFC 231.
His challenger is Brian Ortega, the top-ranked featherweight contender.
Can Holloway, who has battled health problems and depression during his lay-off, stage a successful comeback?
The long-awaited fight between Max Holloway and Brian Ortega is almost upon us. The two leading featherweights will meet this Saturday (December 8th) at UFC 231 in Toronto.
Initially reserved for UFC 226 back in July, Holloway was pulled in the card once he began revealing”concussion-like symptoms.” Holloway has been plagued with health problems this year, which will be his first and only struggle of 2018. Ortega will take nothing less than a title shot and has been patiently waiting for Blessed’s return.
This is one of the most exciting match-ups accessible to the UFC. It is a fascinating pairing of styles and a fight between two of the best featherweights the game has ever seen. With so little separating the two fighters, that is a very tough struggle to pick. Here are a few factors to consider.
