When the news broke that the champ Max Holloway was forced to withdraw from what would have been his second featherweight title-defense, one of the immediate questions that followed from the fans surrounded what the UFC would choose to do with Brian Ortega. The UFC attempted to rectify this situation by offering surging featherweight knockout artist Jeremy Stephens the chance to step in and fight Ortega for the interim title.

And it was a decision he did not take lightly.

“I’m a businessman, a company man, but I’m no yes man,” Ortega wrote on social media. “Watching the fights last night knowing I could have been performing for all of you truly took a toll on me. I stand by my decision. Thank you to all of you who showed up to support and respected my decision. For those of you who don’t agree with me I completely understand and promise to give you guys the show of your life when I fight for the title.”

Ortega last competed back in March. “T-City” knocked out Frankie Edgar in the opening frame to earn his title shot.
