Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya for UFC 222 Main Event

The UFC has found a title fight to replace Holloway/Edgar at UFC 222. Cris Cyborg will look to defend her women’s featherweight belt over Yana Kunitskaya.

Kunitskaya, the former Invicta FC bantamweight champion, opened as an overwhelming betting underdog Thursday ahead of her makeshift main event against UFC women’s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg on March 3 at UFC 222. Kunitskaya, a 28-year-old Russian fighter who is making her Octagon debut, opened as a 6-to-1 underdog against Cyborg, per Bovada oddsmakers, while the Brazilian opened as a monstrous 10-to-1 betting favorite to defeat Kunitskaya and retain her UFC title.
