Ortega wanted to step in to face Khabib, too!

Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega, the undefeated No. 1 featherweight contender, wants a piece of both fighters that’ll meet in Saturday’s UFC 223 headliner in Brooklyn, and he’ll probably get his shot at both here soon.

We reported last week on the odds for the UFC 226 co-main event between featherweight champ Max Holloway and No. 1 contender Brian Ortega.

They still could meet this summer if Khabib Nurmagomedov beats Holloway on Saturday night, and ‘Blessed’ gets out of the fight without any significant injuries.

Turns out, ‘T-City’ was also called upon by the UFC when it initially couldn’t get into contact with Holloway. And Ortega was game as a mother fucker!

See his tweet from a little more than an hour ago below:

That’s good stuff right there.

And it’s no BS from ‘T-City,’ who mentioned last month that his aim in the not-too-distant future is to move up to lightweight.
