Sterling reacted to the result of the Ortega-Rodriguez fight

Aljamain Sterling, former UFC bantamweight champion, commented on Brian Ortega's victory over Yair Rodriguez.

“Both guys are tough and tough. You can beat them for a long time, but they will not give up. After takedowns, they are willing to do anything to get back up and continue fighting. People say this is a good fight for me. To be honest, I have the same opinion. We all didn't know how much better Brian had become after that downtime. In the fight with Rodriguez, we saw this...” said Sterling.

The confrontation between Ortega and Rodriguez took place on February 25 in Mexico City as part of the co-main event of UFC Fight Night 237, and ended with Brian winning by choke in the third round.
