UFC 222: Pros react to Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya, Ortega demolishing Edgar

152 0

Brian Ortega stunned Frankie Edgar in the co-main event of UFC 222.

Chaos was abound at UFC 222 — but not in the main event.

Cris Cyborg defended her UFC women’s featherweight title with ease on Saturday night, stopping Octagon newcomer Yana Kunitskaya via first-round TKO to successfully defend her 145-pound title. But the real madness came in the night’s co-main event, where undefeated featherweight Brian Ortega became the first fighter in 13 years to stop Frankie Edgar, knocking Edgar out with a hellacious first-round uppercut to secure a likely title shot against UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway.

Check out reactions to Cyborg and Ortega’s brilliance below, plus much more from a wild night at UFC 222.
