The Ultimate Fighting Championship is back in Sin City with an interesting UFC 222 Fight Card that will be comprised of three partitions: free live stream online prelims, the televised prelims portion and the main card on pay-per-view (TV and online). The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, will be the site for UFC 222, and betting odds, fight predictions, live streaming and the TV schedule start time are now available.

UFC 222 fight odds: Cris Cyborg landslide favorite versus Yana Kunitskaya

In the main event of the evening, Cris “Cyborg” Justino puts her UFC Featherweight title on the line when she faces former Invicta FC Bantamweight champion, Yana “Foxy” Kunitskaya.

This will be the second time in nine weeks that the reigning 145-pound champ defends her belt, while her opponent will be making her UFC debut.

Earning Fight of the Night honors, Cyborg defeated Holly Holm via unanimous decision at UFC 219 on December 30 of last year. Desperate for the main event, the UFC called the reigning pound-for-pound queen and she answered the call, despite knowing very little about her opponent.

“I was thinking about old school Chute Boxe style, where you never know who you’re going to fight [and] you always have to train and be prepared,” Cyborg, who’s a huge -2000 betting favorite told Ariel Helwani of

UFC 222 predictions: Cyborg vs Kunitskaya fight on upset alert

With a bit of a Tyson-Douglas feel, the 32-year-old Brazilian faces a 28-year-old opponent who, aside from the hardcore fan base, no one really knows. Thus, it comes as no surprise, that UFC 222 oddsmakers have Kunitskaya listed as a huge +900 (betting) underdog.

However, considering she comes from one of the best gyms in the world (Jackson Wink MMA Academy) and given the fact that she trains with the only fighter ever to go five rounds with Cyborg, she has the potential to shock the world tonight.

“Fighting is my job,” she told Helwani when asked about facing such a feared opponent. “I’m happy to meet someone strong and that’s a new challenge. I’m excited about this.”

The fact that Cyborg is slowing down and fighting on short notice against an opponent she’s likely to underestimate, leads one to believe this fight could yield a stunning result.

If one were betting on UFC 222, the big money would be on Kunitskaya by submission in what would be nothing short of a monumental upset.

Solid UFC 222 main card with lots of intriguing betting odds

The rest of tonight’s main card also has many championship implications in a number of divisions. The co-headliner is a title-eliminator at 145 pounds between the former lightweight king and longtime fan favorite, Frankie Edgar and dangerous up-and-comer, Brian Ortega.

Tonight, Edgar is listed as a -155 betting favorite against a +125 betting underdog. It’s worth noting that Ortega stepped on a month’s notice after reigning UFC Featherweight champion Max Halloway suffered an ankle injury. Much like in the main event, this bout has the potential for Fight of the Night and is also on upset alert.
