UFC 222 Free Betting Picks

From the T-Mobile Arena in Paradise Nevada - UFC 222 will take place this weekend as of one of the best sporting events of the month of March. There has a been a ton of drama around this event. Conor McGregor has come out and said he has wanted to be in this event, and would have "salvaged" the event, but he is currently in contract negotiations with UFC president, Dana White.

That did not sit well with the Frankie Edgar side. According to the party, Edgar has asked to face McGregor several times over the past two years. Edgar was scheduled to fax Max Holloway for the 145lb title, before the Hawaii native was forced to pull out of the fight with an injury. In steps, Brian Ortega.

In the Women's Featherweight division, Cris Cyborg is just a massive favorite over the recently signed Yana Kunitskaya. Cyborg is looking to score her second title defense by knocking off another Invicta champion. The Brazilian won her belt in a clash with former Invicta champion, Tonya Evinger. Her last defense was a dismantling of Holly Holm back in December.

Yana Kunitskaya is seeking the 11th win of her career. The 28 year old from Russia is known as Foxy, but is going to be known as beat up after this one. Kunitskaya bounced back from a loss to Tonya Evinger with a win over Raquel Pa'aluhi in California. While she may put up some nice effort, she has no chance of winning. Cyborg is way too big, too strong and too powerful to lose this match. Cris Cyborg -1600 over Yana Kunitskaya

In the men's featherweight fight - Frankie Edgar has the edge, and should win this fight, but Brian Ortega is a tough cookie. Edgar's last bout was a straight up molly-whopping of Yair Rodriguez.

27 year old Brian "T-City" Ortega, a blazing hot prospect from L.A. is 13-0-1 in his MMA career. Ortega is coming off an exciting submission win over Cub Swanson where the Californian secured his patented guillotine. That performance, earned him a nice $50k Fight of the Night bonus.

Ortega is a strong, crafty fighter, but we've seen what The Answer can do to hot prospects. Take Frankie Edgar -175 over Brian Ortega.
