That was bad. Zombie didn't make a single adjustment or try anything at all. Just looked to land a 1 punch counter KO for all five rounds.

Thing is even if he does beat Volkanovski he's never beating Holloway. That's basically an unwinnable fight for him.

I'm saying it now: this version of Ortega is gonna be a problem for Volkanovski, he could take that belt.

Wow man. Zombie literally made me out to be a ******* ******. I said Ortega doesn't have the skill to hang with TKZ, he'll just get chewed up and spit out. I WAS SOOO ******* SURE OF IT. Woooow. Never ever saw that storyline being flipped on its domepiece.

 Kutateladze - Gamrot   fight of the night, Andrade & Crute performance. Main event was also good the rest of the card was ****t.

Ortega have is chance againts Volks but styllisticly wont ever beat Holloway. Aldo record is probably here to stay because even if Zhabit end up winning it, he is not activ enought to defend the belt as many time as Aldo did.

The fight was truly pretty shocking. Not just Ortega's ability to outclass and outwork TKZ on the feet, but also TKZ's reluctance to engage. Both fighters looked like different versions of themselves. 
It honestly reminded me of Covington vs Lawler, where the clear striking advantage should have gone to Lawler but he allowed the grappler to completely outwork him. Disappointing, but good showing for Ortega.
