Brian Ortega is on the first losing skid of his career after UFC on ABC 3, but there could be a silver lining.

Ortega (15-3 MMA, 7-3 UFC) suffered a first-round TKO loss to Yair Rodriguez (14-3 MMA, 9-2 UFC) in Saturday’s featherweight headliner at UBS Arena in Elmont, N.Y., but the stoppage only came after he dislocated his shoulder during a grappling exchange.

No matter how it came, it’s still a loss on Ortega’s record, and with little knowledge yet to the significance of his injury, it’s difficult to gauge where “T-City” fits into the 145-pound landscape.

What’s next for Ortega? Watch the video above for thoughts and analysis on his future after UFC on ABC 3.
