UFC 222 Fight Card: Betting Odds, Start Time For Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya

UFC 222 staff picks

Kunitskaya (10-3, 1NC) is the former Invicta FC bantamweight champion, having defeated previous Cyborg opponent Tonya Evinger in March 2017. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass.

On Kunitskaya: "You have to always respect your opponent".

The 32-year-old's victory over Holm marked the first time she has gone the distance during her current nine-fight win streak. It's not like over the last six months this girl has gotten so unbelievable that she is going to go in and win the 145-pound belt.

UFC 222 Embedded 5 and bantamweight Sean O'Malley weighs his options for Vegas entertainment.

On Kunitskaya stepping in for the fight: "I feel very blessed and thankful she accepted the fight".

America's Nightmare Flu Season Is Finally Coming to an End
And the proportion of outpatient visits for flu-like illness in Georgia was 11.9 percent, down from 15.2 percent. That can make it hard to determine when the most active part of the season is over.

The fight came about when featherweight champion Max Holloway had bow out of his scheduled title defense against Frankie Edgar due to leg injury.

Despite being in Portugal at the time and facing a truncated training camp, Cyborg accepted and makes the quickest turnaround of her career to defend her title against Yana Kunitskaya Saturday evening at UFC 222. "I think little by little, they're going to grow this division, like the men's division". It's not like over the last six months this girl has gotten so incredible that she is going to go in and win the 145-pound belt. On the ground, Kunitskaya is not a poor offensive grappler, but even though we do not see it that often, Justino has massively improved her technical grappling over the years - a far cry from when she once momentarily pulled Gina Carano into full mount on top of her.

As recently as last week there was a report that stated that both sides were in talks on making a second fight happen in the Octagon.

"If I was Cyborg, I would bang this chick out and try to knock her out right away". Stefan Struve vs. Andrei Arlovski in a heavyweight bout, and Cat Zingano vs. Ketlen Vieira in a female bantamweight bout.
