LAS VEGAS (AP) - Brian Ortega knocked out former UFC champion Frankie Edgar on a devastating uppercut with 16 seconds left in the first round, and Cris "Cyborg" Justino defended her featherweight title with a first-round stoppage of Yana Kunitskaya at UFC 222 on Saturday night.

Edgar also said he never heard from UFC President Dana White, which also caused him to question the legitimacy of McGregor's claims.

Ortega has earned himself a title shot against the aforementioned Holloway.

Edgar, 36, claims Abdelaziz told him that McGregor had asked for a 165lb title fight [between lightweight and welterweight] - a division that doesn't now exist.

"I always try not to look too far ahead", Ortega said.

He talked about the importance of fighting Frankie Edgar, a possibility of moving up weight classes, a potential fight with Khabib Nurmagomedov, and much more. Ortega had finished every opponent he had faced faced in the UFC.
