"Yana fought before in Invicta - she was the champion at 135 - and the commission told her to go up", she said of her opponent, who claimed the vacant Invicta FC bantamweight title with a victory over Raquel Pa'aluhi last time out before signing to compete at featherweight in the UFC. The champion has -1600 odds, while Kunitskaya is a +800 underdog. Also featured on the card is 135-pound prospect Sean O'Malley.

The odds were stacked against UFC 222 from the beginning, and now the top of betting boards across the valley reflect as much.

It might seem as a non-factor, despite its position as the night's main event, but Cristiane "Cyborg" Justino can not afford to overlook the challenge her opponent Yana Kunitskaya will present to her when the octagon doors close. This is what is particularly tough for the 28-year-old Russian. I think she was able to prove she can go 25 hard minutes. It is not just that Justino is a "better" fighter in an abstract sense or that she is a physical monster, but rather that Kunitskaya's strengths figure to be completely neutralized by what the champion brings to the table.

Now, Cyborg returns to the Octagon and takes on newcomer Yana Kunitskaya for her second title defense.
