The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) has put another exciting night of fights in the books. With UFC 222 now over, the time has come to look at the highlights from one of the night’s most exciting octagon performances.
The highly anticipated fight card of UFC 222 went down on Saturday night, March 3, inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nev. Former UFC lightweight champion Frankie Edgar was initially set to face off against UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway during the event.
However, Holloway was pulled from the title fight after suffering an injury. Consequently, undefeated mixed martial arts veteran Brian Ortega filled in the empty slot to take on “The Answer.”
Frankie Edgar had never been finished in his UFC career prior to UFC 222. Yet, Ortega shocked the world with a first round knockout victory over the fighter.
