On Saturday, March 3, the UFC will host UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

In the night’s main event, UFC women’s featherweight champion Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino meets fellow Invicta FC veteran Yana Kunitskaya. Cyborg enters the contest riding the momentum of a dominant win over former bantamweight champion Holly Holm at UFC 219 in December. The Russian Kunitskaya will be making her Octagon debut following a title-winning performance over Raquel Pa’aluhi at Invicta FC 25 in August.

The co-main event pits former lightweight champion Frankie Edgar against the undefeated Brian Ortega in a featherweight match-up.

The 12-fight event kicks off Saturday at 6:30 p.m. ET with three fights streaming on UFC Fight Pass. Four additional preliminary-card bouts follow at 8 p.m. ET on Fox Sports 1, with the five-fight main card airing live on pay-per-view at 10 p.m. ET.

The fighters will hit the scales at 7 p.m. ET on Friday. A live video feed appears above (courtesy of the UFC), while the results appear below.
