“It’s going good [relationship with Tracy Cortez]. There was an interesting story, a funny story but yeah, we ended up together. I love her, the coaches now see that, I think that hey respect it, they understand and they know as long as we stay out of each other’s way when it comes to different camps and stuff like that it will be alright.”

“Surprisingly she became a huge part of this camp to where my people are texting her like ‘Hey, make sure he’s not doing this’. I get home and she’s like ‘What’re you doing? And I’m like ‘Nothing’. she’s like ‘You’re not allowed to have this. I’m like ‘Fu*k’. It’s pretty dope, I’ve never had something like that. It’s new and I don’t mind it, I like it.” Ortega said about Tracy Cortez’s contribution in his life ahead of UFC 266.
