On Saturday, March 3, the UFC will host UFC 222: Cyborg vs. Kunitskaya from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The co-headliner is a title-eliminator at 145 pounds between the former lightweight king and longtime fan favorite, Frankie Edgar and unsafe up-and-comer, Brian Ortega. Cyborg once again goes in as a heavy favourite (-1650) but she is not taking this fight lightly as Kunitskaya trains at the famed Jackson-Wink academy.

Edinburgh Airport open but numerous flights cancelled
We have a 24 hour team in place at airport to minimise the severe weather conditions expected later today from Storm Emma. Aer Lingus has cancelled all flights scheduled to arrive or depart from Dublin, Shannon, Cork and Belfast today.

SOMEBODY'S GETTING SLEPT: Heavyweights Stefan Struve and Andrei Arlovski will meet on the pay-per-view portion of the undercard. The daughter of a Brazilian jiu-jitsu master, Dern (5-0) is a world champion who only picked up MMA two years ago, but already has hardcore fans wondering how quickly she can subdue the strawweight division. Debuting strawweight Mackenzie Dern spends time in Southern California before kicking off her first UFC fight week. I think fight Mayweather in boxing, it would be insane. Edgar was originally scheduled to face Max Holloway for the title in the main event at UFC 222, but the champ had to withdraw because of a leg injury. She is also a decorated kickboxer and muay Thai fighter, as well as an accomplished freestyle wrestler, regularly honing her striking skills at Phuket Top Team in Thailand. He may not have seen all too much in the way of top-level competition up until this point, but O'Malley's height, diverse striking attack and overall gutsiness made him an instant hit with the fans when he was spotted first on an episode of Dana White: Looking For A Fight. Kunitskaya suffered a second-round TKO loss as a +165 underdog in her rematch with Evinger at Invicta FC 22 before eventually claiming the title with her win over Pa'aluhi, and has failed to tally consecutive wins over her past five fights.

Below, you can find all the streaming and viewing information you need as well as the full official UFC 222 fight card.

Listeria sickens 10 in Australia with link to rockmelon
All affected melons have been withdrawn from sale and distribution, and rockmelons now for sale are not affected. But the symptoms can take a few days or weeks to appear after eating contaminated produce.

The fact that Cyborg is slowing down and fighting on short notice against an opponent she's likely to underestimate, leads one to believe this fight could yield a stunning result.

Even Justino is interested to see how she will do in less-than-ideal circumstances.
