UFC Video: Brian Ortega Targeting Max Holloway Rematch After UFC 266

  • UFC 266 will see Brian Ortega take on Alexander Volkanovski for a chance to lift featherweight gold.
  • Ortega admits he is fully focused on dethroning Volkanovski
  • But has revealed plans to rematch Max Holloway after this weekend.

This weekend will see one of the best cards of the year take place at the T-Mobile Arena.

UFC 266 is scheduled to host two massive title fights including women’s flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko defending her title for the sixth time against top contender Lauren Murphy.

Elsewhere, the top of the card is set to see featherweight rivals Alexander Volkanovski and Brian Ortega go toe-to-toe for the chance to be crowned the king of the 145lb’ers.

However, despite Saturday night being the biggest moment of his career, challenger Ortega is already plotting his next move, regardless of the outcome of UFC 266’s main event.

Speaking recently to TMZ Sports, ‘T-City’, who suffered a brutal TKO loss against Holloway back in 2018, admitted that a future rematch against ‘Blessed’ would be ‘ideal’.

That would be ideal [rematch vs. Holloway].

I’m not trying to speak ahead or get past Volkanovski because he beat Max twice, so I’m not here to already start celebrating but that would be ideal.

I’m a better person, better fighter than I was when I fought him and watching his last fight, so is he.

You always want that. As a fighter, as a competitor, you always want to make that sh*t square or to say, ‘Yo dog, you know what? You legit got the best of me. Good sh**’
