If you’re a fan of the Terminator movies, then you understand the makers are to be feared for their apparent capability to become sentient and decide that the mankind is a danger that has to be annihilated. Nevertheless, in the case of UFC 222, it was a “Cyborg” who dove in to save the day.
The initial main event for the UFC’s latest pay-per-view offering on Saturday, March 3, was supposed to be the long-awaited meeting of UFC featherweight champ Max Holloway and opposition Frankie Edgar. The fight was originally expected to happen at UFC 218 in 2015, however Edgar had to withdraw at that time due to injury. Well, as harsh fate would have it, this time it was Holloway’s rely on bow out due to injury, and fans have yet once again been denied of the marquee match-up.
However, another featherweight has actually stepped up to the plate to try to salvage the card. UFC females’s featherweight champ Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino agreed to protect her title in the brand-new headliner of UFC 222. Her challenger comes from Invicta FC through Yana Kunitskaya, who was the promotion’s reigning bantamweight champ. Cyborg is a frustrating betting favorite over Kunitskaya, and there is honestly little need to question that Cyborg will effectively defend her belt once again.
Edgar is still arranged to complete at UFC 222, however instead of defending the featherweight title, he will now face Brian Ortega in a probable title eliminator in the co-main event. The undefeated Ortega is coming off a dominant submission success over Cub Swanson last year, and a win for him over a previous champ and one of the most difficult fighters in the whole UFC would practically assuredly guarantee that Ortega ends up being the brand-new leading competitor in the featherweight division.
The UFC Fight Pass initial card begins at 6:30 p.m. ET, followed by the Fox Sports 1 prelims at 8 p.m. ET and the pay-per-view primary card at 10 p.m. ET.
