UFC 222 is an upcoming mixed martial arts (MMA) event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) that will be held on March 3, 2018 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, United States. No main event has been finalized as of yet by the UFC. A few key fights have already been announced by the promotion including a featherweight title fight between champion Max Holloway and Frankie Edgar. Edgar and Holloway were originally scheduled to fight in the main event of UFC 218 last December. However, Edgar was forced to pull out with an injury and was replaced by Jose Aldo.
Additionally, UFC 222 will be the debut of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Champ Mackenzie Dern, who will make her octagon debut against Ashley Yoder. Dern is currently undefeated in her MMA career and is one of the hottest female prospects in the sport.
