UFC 222 'Fight Motion': Watch another Cyborg win, plus rise of Ortega, in super slow motion



UFC 222 featured more dominance from the best women’s fighter in the world, and the rise of a new contender at featherweight.

In the UFC 222 main event this past Saturday in Las Vegas, Cris Cyborg (20-1 MMA, 5-0 UFC) got somewhat of an early challenge from Yana Kunitskaya (10-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC), but ultimately took her out with relative ease in the first round.

And in the co-main event, Brian Ortega (14-0 MMA, 6-0 UFC) earned a featherweight title shot against champ Max Holloway when he became the first to stop former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar (22-6-1 MMA, 16-6-1 UFC) thanks to a massive first-round knockout.

Now you can watch the super-slow-motion highlights from this past Saturday’s pay-per-view at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Plus, you’ll see Sean O’Malley (10-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) top Andre Soukhamthath (12-6 MMA, 1-3 UFC) despite a badly injured foot.

Check out all of the highlights from the card above.
