Tough match-up for Frankie. Ortega looked a lot bigger, and it's difficult to have to outstrike a guy you can't overpower while still avoiding any clinches.
In the post fight interview he said he was 164 when he weighed himself before the fight, I doubt Edgar was even 155 so yes very noticeable. I think one of the things that happened is Ortega took Edgar out of his usual game where he is either striking on the outside or he is fully committed to the take down. By doing that he brought it into a mid range fight where he was more effective.

I noticed that in many entrances throughout the night.
