UFC 222 Embedded, Episode 2: Heading Off To Battle

"But she called me out and wants to fight me and now she has to fight and defend the belt". "I'm not somebody who shies away from it". 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. "But I still prefer to focus on my training". I don't want to get hurt.' She's as strong as anyone I've felt. When Endeavor bought UFC in '16, sale documents valued UFC media rights at $450M per year, but Endeavor sources have said they never expected to hit that number.

Turning pro in 2016, Dern has compiled a 5-0 record with three submissions.

Starting today, USA customers can pre-order March 3 event UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya for $64.99 without a Prime membership. She accepted the fight back then but was denied a visa to travel to the US multiple times. "You guys insane! I just fought, I need rest!'" Justino told ESPN. But I don't have a team that sugarcoats everything. "The first thing I would try is a double leg".

The fight was also a surprise to fans as it appeared that the UFC was building towards a champion-versus-champion fight between Cyborg and UFC women's bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes, who planned on moving up to the featherweight division. But if the Medeiros fight was any indication, the Lab folks may have to keep the jiu-jitsu ace from wanting to throw hands with everybody. Cyborg is a heavy favorite at T-Mobile Arena, but nobody who knows the unpredictability of mixed martial arts would assume Cyborg is only collecting a paycheck. She gives a message to them. In fact, the unbeaten Ortega presents the former lightweight champion with the very definition of a trap fight. "So all my standup is a way to be able to take it to the ground easier".

Cyborg agreed that she could tap the former boxing champion. I began following her ever since that fight, in my opinion she is and has been the best pound-for-pound female fighter ever to grace the MMA scene. In my career, you see, it's one year with no fight and then a year with one fight ...

On Saturday, the world will see how hard it is to fight Mackenzie Dern.
