However, now that the fight is finally happening, Ortega has gone a step further and outlined his future plans and said that he wants to fight current UFC lightweight champion Khabib Nurmagomedov.

This is a matchup where our hands are both good,” Ortega told reporters, at a Monday media lunch in Los Angeles. “He’s a top-game guy and a wrestler, and I’m a bottom-game guy, and I’m a jiu-jitsu guy. I’d watch.”

After Ortega saw Khabib dismantle McGregor, it intrigued him to fight Khabib.

I was watching a lot of things in that fight, where if I was in that position, I was like, ‘There’s a lot of things I would be doing differently,’ and that kind of just made me realize what I want as a super fight, if I ever get there – and it’s within reach,” Ortega said. “If I play my cards right, it’s within reach.

How do you guys see Ortega performing against the likes of Khabib?
