    It has to be one of these guys who are ahead of him in the rankings, but are not booked:
    Jeremy Stephens
    Charles Oliveira
    Ricardo Lamas
    Chad Mendes


    Hopefully it's Oliveira

    He's only really 2-0-1 in UFC so don't want to feed him to lions right away. I say Mirsad Bektic.

    Well he said it's good news so it's probably someone higher than him or else he'd be going nowhere. He's ranked 13 right now

    I was hoping he'd get the Bermudez/Kawajiri winner but I guess that's out.

    He doesn't really need to be fighting a top 5 guy, maybe a fringe top 10 guy

    He needs to be built up a bit more

    I'd be game to see him fight Stephens.

    Round 1 and 2 Ortega shouldn't be rushed but round 3 Ortega looks like a contender in the making.

    He'd get eaten alive by Mendes

    He's good at fighting off of his back. It's not often you see guys doing real damage from a defensive position.

    He needs to fight a few more times before he starts fighting those guys. I'm hoping for a fight with Godofredo Pepey. Maybe on the Brazil card
