Win or lose it's probably time for Max to move up.

Rener Gracie: Brian Ortega already won


“Anyone who knows Brian from that era knows that Brian already won the title. To have made it out of the challenges he faced and the difficult circumstances for him and his family that he faced early on and really the life that he lived, which was not by any means a positive one by conventional standards. ... There were many, many times during his early years where we didn’t know if Brian was gonna make it out. ... Not drugs, but gangs and other things that he was involved with — no drugs, to be clear — back then. It was such a negative lifestyle that I wouldn’t hear about him for three months and he would show up and say, ‘Man, I lost one of my best friends, who just got shot.’ All I can think of is, man it’s your best friend now, next time it could be Pillar Bruins2012. For me, we’re already celebrating. Being here is already a victory in itself. And yes, winning the UFC featherweight championship would be phenomenal, really for Brian. I’m just so excited for him, knowing what he came from that this would be something so meaningful for him and his family.”

WAR T-CITY!!!!

If Max turned to the good Hawaiian weed to help him heal, then he is all good. Mother nature will provide. :cig: :cig: :mrgreen:

I think Max has the better chance to win, but would prefer Ortega. I think max has better striking, and can avoid any takedowns, but Brian is creative with getting people down to the mat. For instance the Cub Swanson fight, and his striking is overrated. He is like a Diaz brother, has good striking/boxing that forces his opponents to wrestle when it is too late, and they are already overwhelmed. Brian did well against the divisions' better striking in Renato Moicano.

Brian seems the least ghetto of just about any fighter that isn't a blond evangelical (thinking Wonderboy)...yet he seems to be one of the few fighters legit from the streets.
