Video: Weighing in on Brandon Royval, Brian Ortega playing spoiler in Mexico City

February 28, 2024 10:30 am ET

Brandon Royval and Brian Ortega pulled off a pair of party-spoiling upsets in Mexico.

UFC Fight Night 237 in Mexico City took place in front of a loud and proud audience, one that wanted to see their favorites Brandon Moreno and Yair Rodriguez pull off victories in the main and co-feature bouts respectively.

Royval silenced the crowd with a gutsy split decision win over Moreno, while Ortega submitted Rodriguez in a grueling comeback performance.

So, what’s the biggest takeaway from upsets? Do we want to trilogy bouts in these matchups in the near future, like say, at Noche UFC?

Our “Spinning Back Clique” of Danny Segura, Matthew Wells and Brian “Goze” Garcia answer those questions along with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia.
