    I was picking Volk to win easily for the entire lead up to this fight until this week, especially the press conference. He seems very irritated and I wonder if he’ll let that affect his performance Saturday.

    To be honest, Ortega does rub people the wrong way.
    He's annoying as fuck, with his nonchalance.
    And I guess the PED past pushed Volk over the edge.

    He's nervous of getting choked unconscious.

    He's scared. Ortega is on a different level right now. Watch Holloway duck the rematch. A green Ortega almost knocked Holloway out, imagine what the current version would do to him.

    Ortega is a weird dude. I figure if you’re his best friend, he’d fight to the death for you; but in the same breath, he’d probably be fucking your girl behind your back.

    weird dude.

    I guess he see's it as an occupation.
    If a client or coworker was always late n didn't give a fuck you would probably be annoyed.
    Then later you find out they have cheated too.

    Holloway won every round on every judges scorecards including a 10-8 round in there. What a silly thing to say. Almost as silly as saying the best fighter in the world at his weight is "scared" . This whole post is laughable.

    Just because Ortega landed a few good shots to jump to he almost knocked Max out is ludicrous. Max battered that guy so badly he didn't fight for 2 years afterwards.

    I was the opposite I had Ortega leading up this fight but seeing Brian and his girl Tracy Cortez on some of the embedded just kinda turned me off a little. Making some of Volkanovski's criticism of him ring true.

    Cmon.

    Its not natural for two competitors to have been around each other as much as guys who have to coach each other on TUF

    Whatever those two might not like about each other is gonna get intensified.

    Lmao you are so full of it dude. I am rooting for Volk on saturday but if somehow Ortega wins we at least can look forward to him getting another beatdown from Max. Clearly you need to refresh your memory about how that fight went down.

    In what way? Im curious.

    EDIT: ahh the being late thing.

    Yea maybe!

    I think Volk is mad that T-city doesnt seem to take him serious,but thats also just how T-City is. Mad laid back and also low key antagonistic cos he knows its infuriating.

    It needs it's own "intensifies" gif, IMO. Maybe "Annoyance intensifies!" I haven't watched this season, so I wouldn't know a good segment to use for a gif though.

    Ortega got underneath Volks skin thoughout the TUF show. Ortega would be unprofessional. Ortega was often late and would take pictures and selfies outside the gym while everyone waited for him.

    I dont think Ortega wants to fight Max ever again. That was a beating.
