Brian Ortega vs. Mike De La Torre
We begin the televised prelims with a featherweight scrap, as Brian Ortega (8-0) puts his perfect record on the line against Mike De La Torre (12-4).
Round 1: Ortega scores with a takedown and quickly transitions to the back, securing his hooks and a figure-four around the waist. He remains on De La Torre’s back and is breaking him down. He’s got a bit of a neck crank instead of a choke, but it’s weakening his opponent. Ortega moves the arm down just a bit and he gets the choke, as he was going out and referee John McCarthy stopped it.
