It’s the time for an UFC 266 live stream, and the main event of the night is centered around a fight we’d expected to see in the past. The problem is that it was delayed due to (you probably guessed the word) Covid-19. In the fight, the defending UFC featherweight champ Alexander Volkanovski was supposed to place his title back on the line on March 1st at UFC 260 but his test showed positive, therefore we were waiting.
The champion is undefeated with 9 wins and zero loss, in the UFC and hasn’t been a fighter for over an entire year. He was awarded an undisputed split decision against Max Holloway at UFC 251. Volkanovski wasn’t always a featherweight, though, as he went from 214 pounds as a prop forward in rugby in 2011 to a 185-pound middleweight/super-middleweight when he debuted in various MMA organizations in 2012. His most recent loss was in the month of May 2013 after Corey Nelson beat him via TKO at the Australian Fighting Championship 5.
Ortega has only lost one fight in his entire career. It was back in 2018 , when Max Holloway (yes, him again) defeated him via TKO in a stoppage by a doctor. Ortega’s only had one draw within his record of 15-1 (1) records, and that was a result of Mike De La Torre on UFC On Fox in 2014.
In order to keep the heat at bay during the field, Volkanovski and Ortega coached opposing teams during the summer campaign in The Ultimate Fighter. Below them on the list, Nick Diaz, who hasn’t won a fight in over 10 years (and hasn’t competed in seven years) will take the fight to Robbie Lawler.
The co-main event also features Valentina Shevchenko as well as Lauren Murphy fighting for the first’s flyweight title.
