UFC Fight Night results, highlights: Brian Ortega overcomes pre-fight stumble for submission of Yair Rodriguez

In the highly anticipated rematch between Brian Ortega and Yair Rodriguez, Ortega defied the odds after a lengthy layoff due to shoulder surgery. Despite a rough start in the opening round, Ortega showcased his grappling skills to secure a dramatic third-round submission victory over Rodriguez. Despite sustaining a busted nose and an injured ankle prior to the fight, Ortega proved that he is still a top contender in the featherweight division. With this impressive win, Ortega potentially earned himself a shot at the featherweight title against Ilia Topuria, solidifying his comeback in the division. Ortega’s hard work and determination paid off as he overcame adversity to emerge victorious in Mexico City. On the other hand, Rodriguez suffered his second consecutive loss after his title defeat to Alexander Volkanovski last year.
