The two featherweights brought their storied rivalry to a close at the behind-closed-doors Flash Forum on Fight Island, an ongoing festival of UFC events in a quarantined bubble on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi.

There had been question marks regarding Ortega's ability to perform having been absent from the UFC for a two-year period.

But the jiu jitsu expert answered that by showing a new, highly-evolved, and technically-proficient version of himself which the media, fans, and the industry as a whole had not seen before.

To demonstrate the ingenuity, technical nous, and knowledge of time, space, and range, Ortega threw and landed an audacious spinning elbow late in the second round which was so powerful it dropped the normally durable Korean Zombie to the ground.

Watch it here:

Korean Zombie had seemingly recovered by the third round but Ortega was back to picking his opponent apart with a varied shot selection which included body kicks, leg kicks, and a body punch.
