Congratulations to T-City on New UFC Contract

April 15, 2014

Brian "T-city" Ortega Gets UFC Contract, First Fight on May 31!

Brian Ortega started training at the Gracie Academy when he was 12 years old. Soon thereafter Rener nicknamed him "Triangle City" due to his unique ability to choke much larger men with his legs. Since then, Brian has evolved into a complete fighter with an undefeated professional MMA record of 8 wins and no losses. Even though Brian still has lots of room to grow, he is excited about transitioning into the UFC. His first fight will take place at UFC Fight Night on May 31, 2014 in Sao Paulo, Brazil against TUF 14 winner Diego Brandao. Go Brian!
