The most dominant woman in combat sports is headed back to Vegas.
Cris Cyborg (19-1) will defend her title for a second time when she takes on former Invicta bantamweight champ Yuna Kunitskaya (10-3) in the main event of UFC 222. The fight came together on short notice after a featherweight title bout between Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar fell through.
With Holloway out due to injury, Edgar will now take on Brian Ortega in the co-main event of the evening. The winner of that bout will challenge Holloway for his title later on this year.
A heavyweight tilt between fan favorite Andrei Arlovski and Stefan Struve will also take place on the PPV portion of the event. All three of these fights are covered in depth in the UFC countdown video above.
