Yair Rodriguez and Brian Ortega will fight in the co-main event of UFC Mexico. It is a rematch of the bout that saw Rodriguez win via TKO after Ortega dislocated his shoulder. Both fighters are former title challengers. Therefore, fight fans highly anticipate the rematch between Rodriguez and Ortega. However, the duo grabbed headlines with a Dragon Ball Z reference ahead of their rematch.

The two featherweights are very cordial with each other and recently had a hilarious face-off before their fight. After the face-off, Ortega called his sons for backup for another face-off. Ortega has two sons, and the children had a hilarious face-off against Rodriguez. Interestingly, fight fans compared Ortega and his sons to the Dragon Ball Z anime family of Goku, Gohan, and Goten.

Ortega had two sons with his girlfriend from high school early in his life. Before his second fight in the UFC, he contemplated retirement as he felt he did not get enough to care for his family. However, he won the fight against Diego Brandao and got a Fight of the Night bonus. The victory put his retirement thoughts on hold, and went on an undefeated streak until Max Holloway defeated him.

Ilia Topuria defeated the long-reigning featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski at UFC 298. This has come at an ideal time for both Ortega and Rodriguez. A victory could land them into a title shot. Another contender for the bout is Max Holloway. However, Holloway has a fight with Justin Gaethje at UFC 300. Movsar Evloev also has a chance, but he does not have the backing of the fans or the UFC.

Nonetheless, see how fight fans reacted to the hilarious face-off below.

Ortega and Rodriguez have not won against Alexander Volkanovski or Max Holloway. That has made their path to the UFC title a difficulty. However, Volkanovski’s recent loss has paved the way for them, particularly as Holloway has a fight scheduled against Justin Gaethje.
