Frankie Edgar issues statement on tough UFC 222 loss to Brian Ortega”

With the loss of the Featherweight Title fight between Frankie Edgar and Champion Max Holloway, the UFC is choosing to force another title fight onto the card for UFC 222, continuing to screw Cris Cyborg in the process. "You think when he goes in and fights Frankie Edgar, you'd bet anything he's going to (submit) him if he's going to win, and he goes in and knocks him out in the first round".

After working a couple of leg kicks towards the latter stages of the round, Ortega started to assert his authority in the fight with vicious, yet thoughtful attacks.

Ortega had laid the foundations for that KO a little earlier in the round when he landed a brutal elbow on the 36-year-old Edgar.

Shooting Reported at Central Michigan University
The Florida gunman, who had a history run-ins with law enforcement, used a semi-automatic assault rifle in the shooting. According to the Mt Pleasant Morning Sun , the suspect may have been released from the hospital before 8am on Friday.

With this victory, eyes will be set on the title as the rightful number one contender. Will an actual 145 lb fighter be able to challenge Cyborg for her title in the near future or will she continue to reign over an empty division?

-Brian Ortega def. Frankie Edgar via TKO (round 1). "I kept pursuing it and I go, okay, he's really rocked; I'm going to try to finish him". With the finish, Brian Ortega became the first man to stop former lightweight champ Frankie Edgar - and punched his ticket to a title shot!

"Amanda, she's the champion at 135", Cyborg said (transcript courtesy of MMA Fighting).

Unai Emery's side trail 3-1 from the last-16 first leg in Spain and may have to try and overturn the deficit without their most expensive asset.

O'Malley (10-0), who joined the UFC past year, left the arena floor on a stretcher with his lower leg in a makeshift cast, but only after giving a charming post-fight interview while flat on the canvas in palpable pain.

"I don't know, but for me I think it's going to be too soon", Cyborg said in regards to the May date. "But I don't know, let's see, it'd be exciting". Just happy to fight through it and get the win.

Why they should fight: Struve was unable to thwart the takedown game of Andrei Arlovski, and as a result, he lost a unanimous decision for his second consecutive defeat.
