Holloway vs Ortega likely for UFC 226

Holloway vs Ortega likely for UFC 226

Despite the two going back-and-forth through social media and managers recently, McGregor paid Edgar his respects following a knockout loss by the former UFC champion at UFC 222 Saturday night. But will that happen?

With that, it would seem as though it will be Ortega who steps up to face the champ Max Holloway.

So, is Ortega down to fight Holloway at that card?

Trump warned of a " phase two " that could be " very, very unfortunate for the world " if the steps did not work. She criticized the NIS chief for allegedly turning the spy agency into a "North Korea cooperation organization".

"The fact we now have a title fight with him (Ortega) against Holloway, you know, Holloway looked incredible against Jose Aldo in his last fight and I'm excited about this", White said at the UFC 222 post-fight press conference. When Holloway was forced out of this fight with an injury, however, Edgar accepted a late-notice battle with surging contender Brian Ortega, putting his well-deserved title shot on the line in an incredibly high-risk move.

So, it could be the case that White's hoping to book Holloway - Ortega sooner than July 7th.

While he does believe that he is next for UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, Ortega takes a very cerebral approach to the situation. It already features Daniel Cormier vs. Stipe Miocic, and TJ Dillashaw and Demetrious Johnson have been campaigning for the UFC to add a fight between them, to that event.
