UFC 222 Post-Fight Press Conference Live Tonight (March 3)

Fans at UFC 220 at the Boston TD Garden on Saturday

Ortega is one of several undefeated prospects on the card - a list that includes wild-striking weed enthusiast Sean O'Malley, emerging bantamweight contender Ketlen Vieira and highly touted Brazilian jiu-jitsu world champion Mackenzie Dern. I said that I needed to check my weight, train first and see how I'm feeling. Much like in the main event, this bout has the potential for Fight of the Night and is also on upset alert.

When you look up and down Sunday's UFC 222 card, which is set to take place at the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise, Nevada, there are a few interesting fights. "The first thing I would try is a double leg".

- Who will emerge victorious at UFC 222? She was most recently the bantamweight champion of the all-women's fight organization Invicta Fighting Championships.

"I feel great and I'm taking this fight for the team". I know she's ready. Dern has a lot of hype behind her and many have compared her to former champion Ronda Rousey. But if the Medeiros fight was any indication, the Lab folks may have to keep the jiu-jitsu ace from wanting to throw hands with everybody. That's why when she grabs me. "For me, if I can punch and kick and be respected standing up too, that's awesome, because if I wanted to just do jiu-jitsu, I would just stay in jiu-jitsu".

7.5 natural disaster hits Papua New Guinea, no casualty
PNG rests on the so-called "Ring of Fire", a known hotbed of seismic activity due to a tectonic plate that spans the Pacific. ExxonMobil Corp said it had shut its Hides gas conditioning plant, close to the quake's epicentre, to assess any damage.

There was a time when Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) was predominantly a male dominated sport.

Do YOU want to write for GiveMeSport? Kunitskaya doesn't agree with the criticis and doubters and delivered a poignant message to them. "So all my standup is a way to be able to take it to the ground easier".

Check below to find picks from Las Vegas Sun's Ray Brewer (17-5 year to date), KSNV's Randy Howe (16-6), ESPN Radio's Steve Cofield (14-8) and Las Vegas Sun's Case Keefer (14-8) along with odds and breakdowns on every fight.

Kunitskaya has fought at featherweight before, scoring a first-round TKO of Cindy Dandois more than seven years ago. In my career, you see, it's one year with no fight and then a year with one fight ... If she wants to put her on the ground, she will. "Even if you're not there yet, if you have the confidence that you can beat anybody, you can beat anybody". Both fighters have alluded to wanting to schedule the bout in July should they both still be champions. "So this is the reason I came back". I was looking for another mountain to climb. "I'm excited about this".
