UFC 222 Results: Brian Ortega Shocks with KO of Frankie Edgar

  • Conor Mc Gregor Frankie Edgar

This past Saturday night (March 3), Edgar took on Ortega in the co-main event of UFC 222.

What are your thoughts on White saying that he'll book Holloway vs. Ortega for the featherweight title as soon as "The Blessed One" is healed from injury?

Edgar (22-6-1) was knocked out in the first round by Ortega (14-0, 1 NC) after getting cracked by a brutal left elbow to the face.

The undefeated Brian Ortega faced his toughest challenge yet in Frankie Edgar at UFC 222.

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

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

"I have worked really hard to get here and it's even more surreal than I could have imagined", Ortega said.

"The guy is so incredible and well-rounded", White said of Ortega. "I just think about what I'm going to do to her".




Oof. Rousey, for her part, has not sounded as if she will be baited by either words or money into a fight.

"I think Ronda Rousey in the WWE would be an unbelievable thing", Cyborg told FloCombat at that time.

Edgar was moving around and stood active.

Following the fight, Conor McGregor posted on his Twitter account. "My foot went numb and I can't feel it. But I don't know, let's see, it'd be exciting".

Instead of attacking O'Malley's obviously damaged leg in the final round, Soukhamthath chose to take the fight to the ground, and it very likely cost him the win. "Welcome to the Sugar Show!"

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.

Earlier, touted strawweight prospect Mackenzie Dern won her UFC debut by split decision over Ashley Yoder, who capably survived several chokes from the jiu-jitsu prodigy in the final two minutes.
