    Brian was getting worked before the head butt but this is where a rapid decline started

    All the more reason for a rematch

    Your life seems to revolve around Brian Ortega.

    No more rematches. Seriously, enough. Ortega has been gifted 2 title shots and shit the bed on both.

    Ortega isn’t champion level. He may get there one day. But not yet.

    he got dominated by a guy wayy smaller.

    I honestly felt Ortega won 3 and 5 but was nowhere near a win other than those two sub attempts in the 3rd (why I gave him the 3rd). I didn't understand 50-45 by any means. Great fight. No complaints about it nor on a eventual rematch down the road if it ever came to fruition.

    Nope. No more rematches. Ortega didn't deserve that fight and surely doesn't deserve another.

    Accidental head butts are nasty and can completely change a fight.. ask Matt mitrione

    Ortega learned in the last round that if he's more aggressive (and moving forward) with his striking he can put the hurt on Volk. They need a rematch.

    I hear what you're saying, but I'd argue his ability to escape the submissions is as much a positive for him as much as a negative for Ortega not being able to finish him. Couple that with Volk delivering brutal GnP at the end of the round lends credence to Volk winning the 3rd. I do think Ortega won the 5th, but it was largely irrelevant and at that point Volk had resided to winning a decision.

    I understand that view completely. Just such a deviation of scoring among three people becomes a concern. We hear it all the time "don't leave it in the judges hands" but those two fought a war from bell to bell. They both went for it.
    I don't know how Ortega made the 4th and won the 5th after the end of the third. Though not the case here, I couldn't imagine losing something based on one person's views that don't reflect his contemporaries take.

    He didn’t deserve a title shot in the first place and I’m very happy the juicehead got destroyed.

    1 win in 3.5 years. How about he fights some lower ranked contenders who wants to get into the top 5

    I don't feel it warrants a rematch anytime soon.

    Let's get divisions moving!

    He deserves nothing of the sort.

    He fought bravely and probably didn't see too much of a hit in his stock, but he clearly lost, and only has one win since mid-2018.

    At least two more top 5ish wins before another bite at the apple.

    I only say because he got bashed in the nose by AV’s cinder block of a head badly, didn’t complain and had moments of near finsh
