Cyborg vs Kunitskaya - Inside the Octagon

Not only has she fought Cyborg, but she fought and beat Kunitskaya back in their old home and now she's not giving the former opponent much hope to beat Cyborg.

A UFC pay-per-view event will be available to buy on Amazon for the first time this Saturday as Cris Cyborg takes on Yana Kunitskaya.

Who were the top performers and who do you think will have the worst post-fight hangover?

But, Cris says she's got a plan to get Ronda's attention - and it involves a STEEL CHAIR. Cat has not stepped into the cage since UFC 200 when she lost a tough fight to Julianna Pena, although she does hold victories over Miesha Tate, Amanda Nunes, and Raquel Pennington. "I'm putting a lot on the line and that's my focus".

Frankie Edgar was supposed to challenge Max Holloway for the UFC featherweight championship in the UFC 222 main event. With such monstrously lopsided odds and the MMA mythos that "anything can happen", the real question becomes whether or not there is anything about Kunitskaya's game that could make lightning strike and allow her to author one of the biggest upsets in the history of the sport. That was the change UFC 222 underwent and now we have Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya in the main event. "We're not used to seeing somebody this good at this high of a level who just destroys the competition every, single time she fights".

Cyborg is best known for her aggressive style where she typically can just bull rush through an opponent but facing a former boxing champion like Holm required a different approach. "Time's ticking and I want to get in there". On the ground, Kunitskaya is not a poor offensive grappler, but even though we do not see it that often, Justino has massively improved her technical grappling over the years - a far cry from when she once momentarily pulled Gina Carano into full mount on top of her. Ortega is taking the fight on short notice and helping saving this card, .

Recently there were rumors that Conor McGregor had thrown his hat into the ring to replace Holloway and fight Edgar, something Edgar would have loved to materialize, and something many fans have always wanted to see.
