The UFC 222 pay per view event was left in scrambles when men’s featherweight champion Max Holloway was injured and out of his bout with Frankie Edgar. After weeks of uncertainty, the UFC has secured a new main event— the women’s featherweight division takes center stage as Cris Cyborg defends her belt against “Foxy” Yana Kunitskaya.
Ahead of the short notice showdown, the UFC has released an official poster “remix” highlighting the new headliner.
New faces, new poster.

UFC 222 is proving to be a pivotal card for WMMA. On the card, BJJ ace Mackenzie Dern makes her promotional debut vs TUF alum Ashley Yoder. “Alpha” Cat Zingano makes her long awaited return against surging contender Ketlen Vieira, and now, Cyborg defends the belt against the former Invicta FC bantamweight champion.
What do you think of the new poster?
