    What do you have to say now !? All experts on how easy and that ortega would be floored! Think it was Zombi who touched the floor at least once per round. Love this! Do not see so many comments now that Ortega is not really good. He drove over and outclassed Zombi. I like Zombi but I enjoy all the thinkers and experts who will come up with some bad reason why he did not win a single round or battle.

    Considering KZ is a lethal striker, has phenomenal TDD, Ortega had a long lay off from a bad beat down...it's easy to call people casuals and say you predicted this and that. Prove how sure you were about your picks and show us a betting slip.

    Pulling for Brian on this one. But the main reason I am here is because it is now Saturday night/fight night, and this message is for all of you clueless jack ass punks who always whine: "boxing is boring" or "boxing is dead". Gee, that's awful damned funny, because right now on the ESPN website, the Lomachenko vs Lopez fight is headlining the entire page ABOVE the UFC Fight Night main card featuring Ortega vs the Korean Zombie. This is yet more proof to apply to what I've been trying to tell all of you jack ass punks all along: Professional boxing isn't going anywhere, and still draws far more attention & money vs MMA, or even the UFC. I love both for obvious reasons, as most NORMAL MEN do. But all of these stupid liberal twerps seem to think that just because you prefer apples over oranges, then an all-out agenda needs to take place to "burn down & eradicate all of the orange trees". This is how the leftist/socialist mind works.........and I'm being totally serious......it's not only pathetic, it's downright evil.

    TBH, a lot of fighters who lose to the best and people still embrace them, but with Ortega, his only loss was againts Holloway and people already underrate him. I mean, did we think he was gonna defeat Swanson and Edgar? Remember when we was amazed by his arm adjustment mid guillotine against Swanson and his uppercut that lift Edgar off his feet? I'm not saying he's gonna win 100%, but dude is still dangerous, what if Zombie fights off his anger and gets caught. Maybe people hates him only because he slapped Zombie's friend.
