UFC 222 Results: Cyborg Dominates, Ortega Stuns Edgar

It's Ortega's fifth straight win, all of which have been finishes. Opposite him was Edgar, looking all business, pacing back and forth, just itching for the bell to ring. Not only did he beat Edgar, one of the most respected fighters in the sport, he did something no other fighter has ever done, Ortega knocked Edgar out.

With a title shot for the victor, Edgar and Ortega entered the octagon with a lot on the line.

One thing that stood out to me is that even though Edgar was landing, he was unable to capitalise on his power due to Ortega rolling with the punches well and moving away.

"It's me, you know what I'm saying?" I'm going to adopt and bring my niece with me, and it's going to be at the end of March, and I accepted this fight (with Kunitskaya) because it's the beginning of March and it [fit into] my plan. More importantly, has Edgar reached that point where he becomes the veteran that cedes his position in the pecking order to the young upstart? Edgar pressured Ortega at the sound of the opening bell. Ortega delivered punches as Edgar tried to survive. Edgar followed up with another body lock after a few combinations which failed again.

With 16 seconds remaining in the first round, Ortega ended proceedings convincingly with a brutal right uppercut that left Edgar flat on his back.

NC officials report 18 new flu deaths, total jumps to 253
Consumers should be aware that there are no legally marketed over-the-counter (OTC) drugs to prevent or cure the flu. The Indiana State Department of Health is reporting that there have been 219 deaths so far this year from the flu.

And while his friends struggled, Ortega surrounded himself with a surrogate family that allowed him to thrive — and to build a fighting career on the verge of a breakthrough. And when the fight does take place, who do you think is going to emerge from the bout victorious? "When you put him in a cage, he's got bite in him".

Ortega's life picked up speed after his victory over Swanson.

Both of those men bested Edgar twice: Henderson to claim and retain the lightweight belt and Aldo in a pair of featherweight title fights three years apart after the undersized lightweight relocated to the 145-pound ranks. "Once I seen him wobble, I thought 'is this a fake or is this real?"

Tommy "WildCard" Hayden is a former UFC fighter and Head MMA Coach at Elite Fight Club, Bangkok.
