UFC 222: Cris Cyborg vs. Yana Kunitskaya
Las Vegas, NV
Edgar remains on the card as well, fighting the rising Brian Ortega in a default No. 1 contender bout for the featherweight strap. Edgar cited his limited remaining time in his career as the reason for fighting instead of waiting to fight Holloway at a later date.
The UFC also explored a banatamweight title fight between champion T.J. Dillashaw and Cody Garbrandt, a rematch of their UFC 217 title fight. Dillashaw declined citing the birth of his child and being out of a regular training regiment, he also felt Garbrandt didn’t deserve an immediate rematch after a second-round TKO and pointed to his long road back to a title fight after a narrow decision loss to Dominick Cruz.
Dillashaw has also been pursuing a flyweight title fight with champion Demetrious Johnson.
