Video: The Size Up – UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya

The T-Mobile in sunny Las Vegas, Nevada is the venue for the UFC this weekend as the MMA leader puts on its latest pay-per-view event. The card has had its ups and downs with the scheduled Max Holloway title defence against Frankie Edgar being replaced in the main event by Cris “Cyborg” Justino taking on Yana Kunitskaya after Holloway pulled up injured. That fight, and the newly formed Frankie Edgar vs. Brian Ortega meeting, are the main focal points of the size up this week as I break down the integers deciding both fights in great detail. Please check out the video with full analysis below.
