UFC has been desperately looking for a replacement main event for UFC 222 after Max Holloway got injured and the fight against Frankie Edgar was cancelled. Cody Garbrandt wanted to fill in and called out T.J Dillashaw for a rematch for the Bantamweight title. T.J. turned that fight down. But UFC has found a new main event. UFC Women´s featherweight champion Cris Cyborg will defend her title against former Invicta Bantamweight champion Yana Kunitskaya.
Frankie Edgar will still be on the card and will fight the extremely talented fighter Brian Ortega in the co-main event of the same card.
UFC 222 is scheduled to take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on March 3rd
