GETTYCris Cyborg takes on Yana Kunitskaya in UFC 222's main event

People are still talking about this boxing legend. Disappointment turned to surprise quickly, as just four weeks ago, "Cyborg" threw her hat in the ring to "save" this card; however, the fact that she already lacks a deep pool of challengers meant we were not going to get a particularly intriguing opponent for her second UFC title defense.

McGregor and Mayweather have been exchanging words in some kind of attempt to make a rematch happen. Cyborg enters the contest riding the momentum of a dominant win over former bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 219 in December. I did this for the team and I think that this is going to be an unbelievable fight for all of my fans.

To many UFC fans, Kunitskaya is a relative unknown. I have a team that's really honest with me and I think that's the most important thing. I think fight Mayweather in boxing, it would be insane. "It's a chance to fight the best woman in the world, so I had to take it". Dern got the submission, but it looked like she wanted nothing more than a knockout. She had -1700 odds when she defended her women's bantamweight title against Bethe Correia at UFC 190 on August 1, 2015.

Kunitskaya called out Cyborg in a tweet on January 25 and after Max Holloway was forced to withdraw from the UFC 222 main event with an ankle injury, she was booked against Cyborg in a replacement main event.

SOMEBODY'S GETTING SLEPT: Heavyweights Stefan Struve and Andrei Arlovski will meet on the pay-per-view portion of the undercard. But I don't want to have that syndrome where you think you're like Mike Tyson.
