Ortega’s performance opposite Jung earned him a title shot against Alexander Volkanovski in the co-main event of UFC 261 on Saturday, March 27.

The shot at Volkanovski at UFC 260 will serve as the co-main event for the night. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic will defend his belt opposite Francis Ngannou for the second time in their main event rematch.

Ortega first got a crack at the belt when he challenge Max Holloway in December of 2018. With Volkanovski taking the belt from Holloway and Ortega having defeated Jung in such a dominant fashion, it was a no-brainer to match them up at UFC 260.
