Frankie Edgar has been doing it longer and better than almost anyone else on the UFC roster. So, when the man gives his opinion, he has some pretty vital insight into the inner-workings of the UFC. When asked about Brian Ortega’s refusal to fight for an interim title to wait for Max Holloway, Edgar feels the UFC brass may have gotten pissed by that decision.
Dana White and company don’t usually react well when faced with this kind of stuff from fighters. Edgar feels, as do a lot of other people; Even if a short notice interim title fight is offered, you should jump all over it .
It remains to be seen what is next for Ortega, but we’ve seen people lose title shots before because they didn’t step up for the company.
