    i like the long lay-off after the Max fight.
    but TKZ will check the recovery on your chin.

    guess I'll change my SN for a couple months.

    Great matchup.

    Ortega took a beating from Max.

    And.

    The Zombie did get finished what seems like yesterday to me yet came back and got a win.

    Both have the will to throw down so it's going to be a real test of who wants to get back into title contention.

    Korean Zombie can rise back from the Dead with a win over Ortega.

    And remember..

    10 years ago Brian Ortega had a choice.

    And he's running with it!

    this is the fight Zombie wanted, he's been calling out Ortega for awhile now.

    Zombie had that devastating KO by George Roop and after, he changed his Zombie Style (walking forward all times) and been on a tare

    twister finish of Garcia,
    6 second KO of Hominick
    submitted Poirer
    then had a good fight vs Aldo until his shoulder went out
    KO'd Bermudez
    most likely would have won the Yair fight before that last minute elbow at 10 seconds left
    TKO Moicano less than a minute

    ^that's a pretty good record, if he beats Ortega, he deserves another title shot

    I think it’ll be a fun fight and I’m guessing Ortega gets a close decision or overwhelms KZ early on the ground and gets a submission

    Pretty sure he's having a giggle, mate. Zombie won't be the betting favorite due to Ortega's ranking and hype, but I don't see how he won't be the favorite among MMA analysts. It's not a great matchup for Ortega at all. Zombie should have the edge on the feet and is one of the few equipped to at least stay out of danger on the ground.

    Their shared opponent in Moicano is relevant for two reasons - Moicano beat Ortega on the feet and got starched by Zombie. Also, people forget that Moicano never went down despite being bombed on by Aldo but Zombie put him away. Ortega's chin seemed legendary against Max but Max isn't exactly Francis Ngannou. If Ortega gets hit by a shot like that he's going down too.

    I'm not writing Ortega off at all, but I have an easier time envisioning Zombie winning this fight than Ortega.
