I know that speaks to how janky the rankings are in general, but it also pertains to this fight because there is a very real chance that the victor of this one could end up fighting for the title later this year.

That leaves Nunes. And that's the fight to make.

Cyborg (20-1, 1 no-contest) finished the show with her 10th consecutive victory against Kunitskaya (10-4), a Russian veteran making her UFC debut on short notice.

As for when that fight will go down, that's the question UFC President Dana White was asked after the UFC 222 event concluded. We'll get to see how Holloway fares against an opponent with superior jiu-jitsu skills and a great standup game. Another knockout loss could prompt a re-thinking of his future plans.

In addition, there's no doubt that the UFC will add some more all-star fights to the UFC 226 line-up.

"The fact we now have a title fight with him against Holloway, you know, Holloway looked incredible against Jose Aldo in his last fight and I'm excited about this", White said.

Secondly, I'm not sold on O'Malley as a guy who should be getting a push in the UFC.

Mourners gather to say goodbye to Rev. Billy Graham at noon
Franklin Graham did not formally endorse Trump during the 2016 election, but he has supported most of his policies. Still, loved ones said Graham saw himself as a humble preacher who would have been embarrassed by such fanfare.

So it seems there is a "Rocky" story that the UFC could promote and really try to market UFC 222 to the average mma fan.

Like the heavyweight clash, this one should be electric, even if there aren't meaningful divisional stakes on the line.

At this point, it's in Edgar's best interest to stay at 145 pounds, mainly because he still hasn't fought champ Holloway and could still land a title fight if a number of pieces fall into place.

But there is more to it than just that.

While he does believe that he is next for UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway, Ortega takes a very cerebral approach to the situation.

After 2017 defeats to Cody Garbrandt and Joanna Jędrzejczyk, there are now no undefeated UFC champions but Brian Ortega hopes to change that this year.
