Regardless of what happens in the UFC 226 co-main event on Saturday, most people see Max Holloway vs. Brian Ortega as a likely rivalry that will play out over the coming years. Ortega is one of those people.

“The entire world is saying this is going to be a rivalry, win or lose,” Ortega said at Wednesday’s UFC 226 Open Workouts in Las Vegas. “I for sure, know for a fact, that if things go right or wrong, we’re going to see each other again. We’re too hungry and we’re just scratching right at the top.”
