Adding another submission victory to his resume and doing so in the biggest fight of his career thus far, Brian ‘T-City’ Ortega may well have cemented a featherweight title fight in his near future after a second-round guillotine proved too tight for Cub Swanson to escape.
With Ortega’s impressive victory over the #4 ranked Swanson, the 26-year-old grappler now moves to 13-0 and has successfully finished each of his five contests under the UFC banner.
