Cyborg is now the biggest betting favourite in UFC history. A featherweight championship bout between Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar was slated to top the card, but fell through when the former suffered an injury.
This weekend's follow-up is far less dramatic. There are probably a few ways to answer that. "But then the next thing I did was check my weight".
"It surprised me, but I think it would be good to fix some issues with my relationship with the UFC and I feel great". In fact, the unbeaten Ortega presents the former lightweight champion with the very definition of a trap fight. "I'm happy to meet someone strong and that's a new challenge". "I think because it's my debut, maybe after that it will go down a little bit, but definitely after my first (MMA) fight, people were waiting to see when I was gonna fight in the UFC".
After seeing the fight, Kunitskaya felt she saw a hole in Cyborg's game.
"I know, but I'd need to slip my head a lot and have to be fast before I can catch him". Kunitskaya doesn't agree with the criticis and doubters and delivered a poignant message to them.

"It was the worst five years of my life", Kunitskaya said of missing competition. "But she called me out and wants to fight me and now she has to fight and defend the belt". 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. "So this is the reason I came back".
So, what's so interesting about the UFC deal? "I'm not a young girl, I'm not 17, I'm 32-years-old and want to get as many fights as I can". Absolutely. But a UFC title fight against the most unsafe female fighter in the world? No. "I haven't fought in nearly a year".
Even Justino is interested to see how she will do in less-than-ideal circumstances. She trains out of JacksonWink MMA in Albuquerque, New Mexico, a fantastic, super intelligent camp that is known for outstanding game plans.
Despite seven career knockouts, six inside the first round, Kunitskaya is not considered a hard hitter on the feet. She doesn't know her size, and she doesn't know her own power.
