In her post-fight interview, Cyborg said she will face UFC bantamweight champion Amanda Nunes in a super-fight.
Cyborg (20-1, 1 no-contest) finished the show with her 10th consecutive victory against Kunitskaya (10-4), a Russian veteran making her UFC debut on short notice. The finish streak didn't finish at UFC 222 either.
Basically, this could very well be a title eliminator, which means you should be paying attention. We'll get to see how Holloway fares against an opponent with superior jiu-jitsu skills and a great standup game.
In addition, there's no doubt that the UFC will add some more all-star fights to the UFC 226 line-up.

Soukhamthath is 1-2 in the UFC, losing a pair of split decisions before knocking out Luke Sanders last time out and has the kind of unpredictable offensive arsenal that makes him an interesting dance partner for O'Malley.
So it seems there is a "Rocky" story that the UFC could promote and really try to market UFC 222 to the average mma fan.

Edgar initially was slated to fight featherweight champ Max Holloway at UFC 222, but when "Blessed" got injured, Edgar made a decision to take another fight instead of waiting it out. But beyond the title aspirations, there is more to the showdown between Edgar and Ortega.
UFC 222 was electrifying as promised: it paved entry for up-and-coming talented fighters like Brian Ortega and Sean O'Malley; and it cemented Cyborg's legacy as the baddest woman on the planet.
"I don't know, but for me I think it's going to be too soon", Cyborg said in regards to the May date.
There are a couple things at stake in this one, so let's break 'em down one by one. That didn't stop former Invicta FC featherweight champion Megan Anderson from calling next. That's the simplest piece in all this.

Everyone and their mother knew how this one would go down, and that is exactly how it went down.
