Last night at UFC Fight Night 123, unbeaten featherweight prospect Brian Ortega justified his own hype with a dominant performance over longtime top 5 ranked fighter Cub Swanson. In tradition of post fight chatter, UFC pros took to twitter with their reactions of Ortega’s nasty choke out victory.
Ortega nearly finished the fight in the very first round of action with a choke, but Swanson was able to hold out until the bell saved his consciousness. In the second round though, Ortega grabbed his neck early and forced Swanson to tap out with a nasty standing guillotine for the ages.
Here’s the UFC fighter reactions to the finish:
