UFC Fight Night takeaways Should Yair Rodriguez get a title shot Is Miesha Tate now a gatekeepe

There was a pop in Ortega's shoulder that led to the TKO finish

Rodriguez wasn't trying to pop Ortega's shoulder out with a particular technique as is usual in typical cases

Ortega injured his shoulder trying to defend Rodriguez's armbar attempt from the bottom position

He did not slip and fall and he did not step in the wrong direction and injure his ankle and knee

When he was fighting for position with Rodriguez on the ground he sustained an injury
