    Not sure who takes It.

    Ortega's boxing / striking isn't to be slept on.

    Even If the fight Is kept on the feet It doesn't necessarily favor Max significantly. Crazy as that might sound to some.

    Max In general Isn't to be slept on either, he looks fine..is talking well enough, weight cut looked good. Could very well see the best version of Max here.

    Overall I think this is gonna be a back and forth war, both guys having their moments and probably going all 5 rounds.

    Pickem fight imo

    It's always tough to pick a side when you don't want either fighter to lose! Leaning towards Max though.

    Yeah I’m not to sure Max can hang with Ortega on the feet given his recent health issues/weight cut troubles which has a huge effect on your chin, especially seeing what Ortega did to Frankie. We know what happens if it hits the mat.

    Ortega has an iron chin. If Max wins it’s by UD. Ortega takes this imo

    Definitely a pick em fight but I'm rolling with Max. Insane cardio, excellent striking and great fight IQ. Hopefully he's 100% healthy.

    Hope it is. Max should be favored though. He has the championship experience and has faced the whose-who at FW.

    This fight is totally dependent on his health. It's such a weird unknown. If he's 100% I expect him to run through Ortega.

    True, and not a big fan of either so not trying to make excuses - If Max loses, I don't think it will be because of his health, though. I think it will be because I underestimated Ortega and he won it. I just think Max is the better fighter.

    Under normal circumstances, I’d say this would definitely be a war. But the way Max has been in recent interviews, the press conference, open workout & embedded, I think he’s still a bit fucked up from that concussion or whatever happened to him. Looks like Ortega will clearly take this if max is even just a little bit off or slow (which I think he’s going to be).

    yeah I'm assuming Max Is well in this prediction.

    If he isn't then It's a massive question mark.

    I like both guys but I gotta go with Ortega. Dude is such a beast and he always seems to pull thru even when he's down on points. After what he did to frankie I think he's on a new level. Its gonna be a war tonight
