Ortiz concluded “I don’t think I’m the most talented fighter, but I do believe I put in the most work, I work the hardest out of every single fighter that’s training right now. That’s just the way you have to do it, Mamba mentality. There’s not much to say, come March 28. it’s gonna be a very exiting fight.”
