Ortega-Jung has been in the making for almost a year. They were supposed to crash last December, but Ortega couldn’t get through the fight due to a partially torn ACL. Then, in February, Jung conducted an interview in which he stated that Ortega had to bow before their planned fight because he was afraid to face it. Ortega responded in kind at UFC 248 – when Jung and his wife backed up, Ortega hit Jung’s translator and entertainer Jay Park. Cool heads prevailed and Ortega apologized to Park for the incident.
Ortega enters the Octagon for the first time since his loss to then featherweight champion Max Holloway by TKO in the fourth round at UFC 231 to suffer the first loss of his professional career.
After losing his rematch to Yair Rodriguez in a classic after a 21-month layoff, Jung has two consecutive one-stop victories against Renato Moicano and Frankie Edgar.
This is all to be the “fight of the year” when Ortega and Jung bring their all-action styles to the Octagon.
