UFC fight night events are sometimes known for heated pressers and word exchanges, but this time, a lot of humble statements were seen at UFC Fight Night: Brian Ortega Vs Yair Rodriguez press conference. Fighters choose their words very wisely, plus there is a lot of respect between the two halves of the main event due to their culture and heritage (they are both Mexicans by origin).
UFC Fight Night: Ortega Vs Rodriguez event will take place on Saturday, July 16th, 2022, but it kicks off earlier – 11 AM ET, which means it is a piece of cake for European fans.
