“I’d be really upset if that happens,” the Brazilian said. “It might happen because he works for the TV and he uses that to promote himself. Dominick Cruz is my friend, we had a few beers together in the past, but you can’t deny what I have done in the UFC. He hasn’t fought in a while.

“It’s a double-edged sword,” said Ortizas transcribed by Dave Doyle for MMAFighting. “It helped, and it didn’t help. Helped to sell the fight, 10 days after we’re still talking about it. A lot of fans, maybe they didn’t like it because of the pro wrestling side of it, I didn’t like it, The fact of him talking about my family, I didn’t like it. Like I said, it’s a…

I also have to say in the UFC, there’s no easy fights in the UFC. Everybody’s tough. This was something I said before the fight. Don’t underestimate Ben.
