Cris Cyborg will defend the UFC Women's Featherweight Championship against Yana Kunitskaya in the main event of UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya on Saturday. The odds are insane in this one, as the betting masses now have bet Cyborg to a -1,400 favorite, but the line was as high as -1,600 at one point! With these two facing off in the co-main event, this could be another epic fight to add to the resume of Frankie Edgar's historic career.

The fact that Cyborg is slowing down and fighting on short notice against an opponent she's likely to underestimate, leads one to believe this fight could yield a stunning result.

"Cyborg" will aggressively stalk Kunitskaya behind her jab, land powerful shots on the counter when the Russian opens up and retain her title, knocking out the challenger in the first 15 minutes of the fight while hopefully setting up a more competitive and interesting third defense in the coming months. Kunitskaya has more pop in her punches than Holm, but she typically excels when she is going forward rather than fighting off of her back foot, which is where the Brazilian is going to force her to fight, given Justino's constant forward pressure.

"I know, but I'd need to slip my head a lot and have to be fast before I can catch him".

Turkey requests extradition of Syrian Kurdish leader from Czech Republic
The PYD, which Turkey considers a "terrorist group", is the main political Kurdish force in the north of Syria . Most of the larger towns in Afrin region, including Afrin town itself, remain under YPG control.

"I think there were people who would question her gas, question her heart, how she would deal with getting frustrated in a tough fight". "I think I know, but anything can happen". "I just want to be active", Edgar said.

"Man, I haven't fought since May". She then went on to compete in rukoposhnomu fights, where she apparently went undefeated. Cyborg once again goes in as a heavy favourite (-1650) but she is not taking this fight lightly as Kunitskaya trains at the famed Jackson-Wink academy. I would have much rather seen UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes vs Cyborg in a super fight, but the UFC seems to want to make us all wait.

Down the card, a pair of the UFC's most highly-touted prospects make their first respective appearances on a PPV event, with 'Suga' Sean O'Malley being the first. Stefan Struve vs. Andrei Arlovski in a heavyweight bout, and Cat Zingano vs. Ketlen Vieira in a female bantamweight bout.
