Ortega’s composure might be more impressive than his finishing ability. Nobody finishes Edgar. Wow!

With the victory, Brian Ortega is now the clear top contender in the UFC’s featherweight division and will now get a shot at current 145-pound kingpin Max Holloway.
Who do you think will emerge victorious when “Blessed” and “T-City” throw down later this year? Sound off PENN Nation!
