  1. I like this guy because he seems genuine…not like fake punk ass McGregor. The only thing is he sometimes sounds like Rener and it's because he spends a lot of time with his teacher but still a man or woman — should be their own person.

  2. Good vibe off this guy , very calm, nothing fazes him….that’s a dangerous fighter who is Relaxed , the brain functions good , when there is less stress , I love frankie but Ortega is a big 145lb & he might snap that neck up , when Frankie goes for a take- down
