Brian Ortega has the edge on Alexander Volkanovski—at least for now.
His team up 1-0 after placing Andre Petroski in the middleweight semifinals, Ortega will task No. 3 pick Mitch Raposo with trying to take out Team Volkanovski’s top seed, Liudvik Sholinian, in the first bantamweight quarterfinal on Episode 2 of “The Ultimate Fighter 29.” Raposo, 22, has touched off his professional career with five straight victories in the Cage Titans Fighting Championship and CES MMA promotions. The 31-year-old Sholinian sports a 9-1 record, a unanimous decision defeat to Sidemar Honorio under the Bellator MMA banner in 2018 his only misstep.
