Biography:


Mixed martial arts career:

Brian Ortega is a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu practitioner who trains at the Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy under Rorion Gracie, and his sons Ryron, Rener, and Ralek Gracie in Torrance, California. He currently fights in the UFC featherweight division.

Ortega began his career competing for regional promotions exclusively in Southern California. He won his first pro-MMA championship against Carlos Garces in a five round bout via unanimous decision, becoming the Respect In The Cage featherweight champion.

Ortega went on to compile an undefeated record of 8-0 before signing with the UFC in April of 2014.
Ultimate Fighting Championship:

Ortega was expected to make his promotional debut against Diego Brandao on May 31, 2014 at The Ultimate Fighter Brazil 3 Finale. However, Brandao pulled out of the bout in the days leading up to the event citing an injury. Due to the late nature of the change, officials did not try to find a replacement and Ortega was pulled from the card as well.

Ortega eventually made his debut on July 26, 2014 at UFC on Fox 12 against Mike De La Torre. Originally, a first round submission (rear-naked choke) win for Ortega, the result was changed to "No Contest" after Ortega tested positive for drostanolone during a post fight screening. Subsequently, Ortega was fined $2,500 and suspended for nine months.

Ortega faced Thiago Tavares on June 6, 2015 at UFC Fight Night 68. He won the back-and-forth fight via TKO in the third round. Both participants were awarded Fight of the Night honors.

Ortega faced Diego Brandão who is a Second Degree Black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu on January 2, 2016 at UFC 195. After being down against Diego's striking for the first two rounds, Ortega rallied and won via triangle choke in the third round.
