Originally UFC 222 was scheduled to feature a featherweight title fight between champion Max Holloway and challenger Frankie Edgar. UFC 222 was in danger of being canceled when Holloway was forced to pull out with an injury. The pair were originally slated to fight at UFC 218 in Detroit, but an eye injury forced Edgar out and Holloway defended his belt against Jose Aldo in an immediate rematch.
Enter Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino to save the day. Cyborg successfully defended her strap against Holly Holm at UFC 219 on the end of December card and is making the quick turnaround on three weeks notice to save the card. Her challenger is former Invicta FC bantamweight champion Yana Kunitskaya, who is making her UFC debut on short notice.
The bout will be Kunitskaya’s first in the Octagon, but she believes she’s more than capable of knocking off Cyobrg, who many consider the top female fighter in the world. Though Edgar saw his title fight fall apart, he didn’t want to sit on the sidelines. He instead quickly agreed to put his UFC featherweight title shot on the line against fellow contender Brian Ortega. The winner of their fight is expected to challenge Holloway as soon as he is ready to return.
