Countdown to UFC 222 full video replay for ‘Cyborg vs Kunitskaya’ in Las Vegas

New, comments

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) is less than a week away from its upcoming UFC 222 pay-per-view (PPV) mixed martial arts (MMA) event, locked and loaded for Sat., March 3, 2018 inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Reigning featherweight champion Max Holloway was a late scratch to the five-round headliner, which sent Frankie Edgar into a non-title affair against streaking contender Brian Ortega and nearly to another “Fight Night” card on FOX Sports 1.

Crisis averted.

We can thank women’s featherweight champion Cristiane Justino for that, as “Cyborg” welcomes Invicta FC import Yana Kunitskaya (details), who will play the role of “warm body” for taking this bout on super-short notice.

That’s not all.

Former UFC heavyweight champion Andrei Arlovski will return to the Octagon to throw hands with longtime 265-pound veteran Stefan Struve. In addition, Hector Lombard and C.B. Dollaway collide in middleweight action.

Check out the special “Countdown” video preview embedded above and to see the rest of the finalized UFC 222 fight card and line up here.
