Preview: UFC 222 ‘Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya’ - Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya

With all of the embarrassing insanity Jon Jones foisted on us this week, perhaps you forgot there was an Ultimate Fighting Championship pay-per-view on Saturday -- a UFC pay-per-view headlined by a title fight, no less; and this championship fight features one of the most exciting and violent fighters in the sport and perhaps the greatest woman to ever lace up a pair of four-ounce gloves: Cristiane “Cyborg” Justino.

5 Things You Might Not Know About Angela Hill

One of the Ultimate Fighting Championship ’s original strawweights, Angela Hill has had an interesting career path since appearing on “The Ultimate Fighter.” From initial success in the Octagon to setbacks against top fighters and a move to Invicta Fighting Championships to get back on track, Hill’s career has always been noteworthy. Scheduled to face ranked strawweight Maryna Moroz at UFC on Fox 28 , here are five things you might not know about Hill. 1. Only one professional bout before Octagon debut. Unlike the vast majority of fighters, Hill did not bounce around in the lower promotions of the mixed martial arts universe before achieving a breakthrough to the big show. Hill had just one fight outside of the UFC, appearing at USFFC 18 “Metal and Mayhem” in 2014. Hill earned herself a second round TKO over Stephanie Skinner and shortly after made the move to the major leagues. 2. First round loss on ‘TUF.’ Hill earned her opportunity in the newly created women’s strawweight division in 2014 as a member of “The Ultimate Fighter: A Champion Will be Crowned” tournament.

Yes, I could. Short of unethically showing you group conversations, I can tell you they chose a "union for a few fighters" path. A union model doesn't fit MMA and fighting for it divides us as a class. Asking questions is fine, but advocating against our goal in our group is not

Cristiane ‘Cyborg’ Justino: By the Numbers

Recognized by many as the most dangerous woman on the planet, Cris Cyborg has been an unstoppable force in mixed martial arts for more than a decade. “Cyborg” will defend her Ultimate Fighting Championship women’s featherweight title against former Invicta Fighting Championships titleholder Yana Kunitskaya in the UFC 222 main event this Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Justino carries with her a 20-fight unbeaten streak during which she has gone 19-0 with one no-contest. Ahead of Justino’s latest title defense, here are some of the numbers that have come to define her: 0: Submission victories to her credit. All 16 of Justino’s finishes have come via knockout or technical knockout. 1: Defeat on her resume. Justino’s sole MMA loss came in her pro debut in 2005, when Erica Paes submitted her with a first-round kneebar in a fight held in Curitiba, Brazil. 1: Successful UFC title defense. “Cyborg” captured the vacant women’s featherweight championship at UFC 214 on July 29, as she stopped Tonya Evinger with knee strikes in the third round.

Marc Diakiese Wonders if Sage Northcutt is Asking Mr. Faber for Permission to Fight Him | BJPenn.com

“I think it would be a good fight. [Sage Northcutt]’s on a two-fight win streak, and I’m on a two-fight losing streak. To be honest, I watched his fight in Austin, and I thought he lost. I feel the fight makes sense. He’s 10-2 and I’m 12-2. If he beats me, it will really put him out there. I bring a lot of attention to fights and so does he. He likes to stand up and so do I, so I think the UFC will like the idea and I know the fans will really like it too. I think right now he’s probably asking Mr. Faber if he should take the fight. To be honest, I don’t know he feels about it, but I want to take what’s mine. I know I can gain a lot from fighting him, and I think he can gain a lot from fighting me too.”

Josh Emmett and Jeremy Stephens Ready to Go, but One Fighter Misses Weight at UFC on FOX 28 Weigh-ins

On the opposite end of the spectrum is his opponent, Josh Emmett. Emmett is actually a year older than Stephens, he’s 32 to Stephens’ 31, but he has been fighting for just under 7 years, but amassed an impressive 13-1 record. His only stumble was a split-decision loss to Desmond Green at lightweight before he returned to featherweight, where he has since taken impressive victories over Felipe Arantes and Ricardo Lamas. He hopes to add Stephens’ name to his hit list and forge a quick route to a UFC title shot.

Daniel Cormier: Superfight with Stipe Miocic Bigger Than Jon Jones Bouts

Daniel Cormier believes that the superfight against Stipe Miocic is the biggest fight of his career and is excited to be featured in arguably one of the most anticipated fights ever inside the Octagon. Cormier takes on Miocic for the undisputed heavyweight Ultimate Fighting Championship title on July 7, 2018 inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Standing in Cormier’s way to the title is the current champion and record holder for most title defences in the heavyweight division (3) in Miocic. The Ohio native set the record last month at UFC 220 with a unanimous decision victory over the dangerous striker Francis Ngannou . DC spoke to Flo Combat regarding his involvement in some of the UFC’s biggest ever fights, including this one with Miocic: “This is the biggest fight of my life. This is the biggest fight I’ve ever been in. I have played a major part in some of the biggest fights in the UFC. I mean I was at UFC 182, I was a big part of UFC 200, supposed to headline it, was a massive part of UFC 214, and now this one.

Dana White Finally Spoke to Jon Jones For the First Time Since UFC 214 | MMAWeekly.com

Jones will go before the California commission on Feb. 27 where he’ll get the first indication on when his career can continue but he’ll still have to wait on a verdict from USADA before booking any fights. Because Jones tested positive for a banned substance previously in 2016, which resulted in a one year suspension, he could face up to a four year sanction for this latest violation of the UFC’s anti-doping policy.

Conor McGregor: I Put My Name Forward to Fight Frankie Edgar at UFC 222

I am fighting again. Period. I am the best at this. I put my name forward to step in at UFC 222 to face Frankie Edgar when Max Holloway pulled out, but I was told there wasn't enough time to generate the money that the UFC would need. I was excited about bouncing in last minute and taking out the final featherweight, without all the rest of the stuff that comes with this game. Please respect the insane amount of work outside the fight game that I have put in. On top of the fighting. I am here. It is on them to come and get me. Because I am here. Yours sincerely, The Champ Champ™
