After impressing in regional promotions in America, Mexican-American Brian Ortega signed to the UFC in 2014. His debut was eventful as his first-round submission of  Mike De La Torre was later changed to a ‘no contest’ when Ortega tested positive for drostanolone in a post-match screening. After seeing out a 9-month ban, Ortega got his UFC career back on track with several Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night bonus awards. He, however, twice lost championship bids against Max Holloway and current champion Alexander Volkanovski. The latter, last September at UFC 266. He is currently ranked number 3 in the UFC Featherweight rankings.
