That is what happens when Yana Kunitskaya is your challenger.
Despite some shuffling at the top of the card, UFC 222's 12 scheduled bouts are sure to bring some classic fireworks and gritty performance in Las Vegas. Edgar could have waited for his featherweight title shot when Holloway returns from injury this summer, but the 36-year-old veteran chose to risk it all by fighting Ortega, a unsafe contender.

For Kunitskaya, there's a sense of irony in this fight coming together on short notice. "But she called me out and wants to fight me and now she has to fight and defend the belt".

I like it and I become a better fighter when I know it's a big event or an all eyes on me type thing.
