The UFC is looking to book a women’s featherweight title fight between Cris Cyborg and Yana Kunitskaya as the headliner for the upcoming UFC 222 event on March 3. The news would mean Kunitskaya will be pulled from her scheduled fight against Leah Letson.
The news was first confirmed by MMA Fighting’s Ariel Helwani.
There are deals in place to have Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya for the women’s 145 belt headline UFC 222 on 3/3 w/ Frankie Edgar vs. Brian Ortega as the co-main, per multiple sources. Not 100% finalized but that’s the current direction and it’s looking promising at the moment.
