After a crazy card last weekend, the UFC travels to California for UFC Fresno, which is headlined by 145 Standouts Brian Ortega and Cub Swanson. This should be really good.
Brian Ortega's Jiu-Jitsu is really good. Like he finds submissions anywhere. He's probably the best grappler in the division, and he's undefeated in MMA. For him, the strategy is clear: take it to the ground. He will hold the advantage there, as he is not on the same level of striking as his opponent.
Cub Swanson is an extraordinarily violent man. From just throwing wildly at the end of the Holloway fight, or the insane Doo Ho Choi fight, he is always down to throw hands. That should definitely be what he looks to do against Ortega. He needs to lure him into a brawl and clip him there. The last thing he wants to do is end up on the ground, as Ortega can submit him from anywhere.
