    For years, Aldo and Frankie were #1 and #2 in the FW division.

    As Aldo and Edgar were getting older, young destroyers like Max and Ortega were smashing everyone.

    Then, FW champ Max beat Aldo and Ortega beat Frankie.

    Battle of the FW new breed. Who wins?

    I got Brian “T-City” Ortega

    So Pumped... this fight is going to be awesome. Wasn't sure about Ortega and his boxing... but Edgar felt that power. Both are elite and will watch... probably more than once.

    I'm going with Max for the win. I don't think Ortega can handle his movement, and Max pieces him up.

    Very tough fight to call. It wasn't too long ago when Mcgregor was taking down and mounting Max, however he has improved since then. But has he improved enough to deal with the jiu jitsu of Brian Ortega? Not sure.

    Max is very durable and nearly impossible to put away, however so was Frankie and we saw what t-city did to him. On the feet, I give Max the clear edge. The first Ortega fight I saw (or at least remeber) was with Renato Moicano, and I thought that Ortega could hold his own in striking but has some serious holes in his striking. However, I think Ortega could get a little reckless due to his incredible chin. And he is no slouch on the feet being the first person to ever finish Frankie Edgar. If the fight stays standing we might see a war since both have incredible chins and are very durable, and can have a slugfest.

    On the ground Ortega will make easy work of Max. Ortega's jiu jitsu is just too high level and Max is only a purple belt I believe. While I don't think Ortega will shoot for takedowns, Max will be weary to have Ortega get too close and get a hold of his neck.

    Very good fight, I see Ortega having many pathways to win this fight however I have to go with Max since I have doubted him before and he has proven me wrong many times.

    Max will piece up just about anybody at 145 on the feet. I think he will do the same to Ortega. Both are massive FWs. Both have the same reach too if I'm not mistaken.

    No he didn't. He abandoned it bc the weight cut was brutal. He was a bully in a weight class he could barely fit in.

    The division is better without that blushed out periwinkle.

    Have you seen him lately? Damn fool has lost his mind.
