Cris “Cyborg” Reportedly Fighting Yana Kunitskaya at UFC 222
By FCF Staff
UFC 222 will feature a title fight after all, as it’s being reported that featherweight champ Cris “Cyborg” has agreed to fight Octagon newcomer Yana Kunitskaya at the March 3rd event.
The March 3rd card was originally supposed to feature Max Holloway defending the featherweight title against Frankie Edgar, but Holloway was forced to withdraw due to injury. MMA Fighting was the first to report that “Cyborg” will now take on Kunitskaya; however, the UFC has not made an official announcement yet.
Brian Ortega has also reportedly agreed to face Edgar in the co-main event.
UFC 222 will take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, and is currently scheduled to be a pay-per-view card.
