Amazon Set to Start Streaming UFC Pay-Per-View Fights

While many don't feel she will walk out of Las Vegas with the gold, Kunitskaya feels confident she'll leave "Sin City" as the first Russian woman to capture a UFC championship.

Earlier on Saturday, former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar is listed as a strong -175 favourite on the UFC 222 odds as he takes on Brian Ortega in a featherweight clash.

UFC 222 in Las Vegas marks the first card under the new deal and users will not need an existing subscription to Amazon Prime.

Cris Cyborg Justino began her MMA career in 2005 at a show in Brazil where she suffered her only loss in UFC to date, holding a 19-1 professional record. Debuting strawweight Mackenzie Dern spends time in Southern California before kicking off her first UFC fight week.

For Kunitskaya, there's a sense of irony in this fight coming together on short notice.

FIFA wants tension between Iran, Saudi Arabia not to affect football
It said the organization has asked Iranian authorities for more information on the matter and will continue to follow it closely. Iranian women have been allowed to attend some men's sporting events.

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.

The fight came about when featherweight champion Max Holloway had bow out of his scheduled title defense against Frankie Edgar due to leg injury.

Kunitskaya is the Invicta promotion's 135-pound champ, and she hasn't fought at 145 pounds since before her three-year retirement, which ended in 2016. Kunitskaya has more pop in her punches than Holm, but she typically excels when she is going forward rather than fighting off of her back foot, which is where the Brazilian is going to force her to fight, given Justino's constant forward pressure. Sean O'Malley is a hot bantamweight prospect with impressive hair and a predilection for 1970s attire and music - and he doesn't get along with his opponent, Andre Soukhamthath.

If you're a diehard UFC fan (even if you're not), Amazon just gave you another option to watch fights. I would have much rather seen UFC Women's Bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes vs Cyborg in a super fight, but the UFC seems to want to make us all wait. Who were the top performers and who do you think will have the worst post-fight hangover?
