Tonight (March 3), Cyborg will defend her gold against Yana Kunitskaya. The title bout is set to headline UFC 222. The action takes place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
UFC color commentator Jimmy Smith spoke to MMA Weekly and talked a bit about tonight’s pay-per-view. During the interview, Smith gave high praise to Cyborg:
“I think [Cyborg] is [the best ever] personally. We’re not used to seeing somebody this good at this high of a level who just destroys the competition every, single time she fights. I mean Holly Holm was the toughest test she’s had in a long time and I think she passed with flying colors in that fight. It went the distance, but I thought she really, really dominated that fight. She looked absolutely fantastic. I think she’s the best female fighter of all time.”
Don’t forget, MMA News will be providing live coverage of UFC 222 starting with the prelims at 6:30 p.m. ET.
