The UFC’s return to the T-Mobile Arena in March will feature Cris Cyborg defending her female featherweight title vs. Yana Kunitskaya instead of Max Holloway-Frankie Edgar for the featherweight belt.
UFC 222 takes place March 3. Cyborg and Kunitskaya were signed as a replacement for Holloway-Edgar after “Blessed” suffered an injury.
Cyborg will be welcoming Kunitskaya to the Octagon, as the former Invicta FC champion recently signed with the promotion.
Edgar remains on the docket, as he’ll put his No. 1 contender standing on the line opposite the red-hot Brian Ortega in the co-main event.
Rounding out the pay-per-view main card is Sean O’Malley vs. Andre Soukhamthath, Stefan Struve vs. Andrei Arlovski and Cat Zingano vs. Kelten Vieira.
Mackenzie Dern makes her UFC debut that night, headlining the FOX Sports 1 prelims vs. Ashley Yoder. Dern is a multi-time champion in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and is 5-0 in her MMA career.
Other bouts for the televised prelims include Beneil Dariush vs. Bobby Green, John Dodson vs. Pedro Munhoz and C.B. Dollaway vs. Hector Lombard.
Mike Pyle-Zak Ottow, Bryan Caraway-Cody Stamann and Jordan Johnson-Adam Milstead complete the UFC Fight Pass prelims.
