UFC 222 is in the books and what an event it actually turned out to be. Cris Cyborg continued her reign of dominance and rather easily, but also showed some signs of vulnerability if you looked hard enough. More importantly, however, was the ascendancy of seven fighters under the age of 30. In particular, Brian Ortega surged ahead to the top of the featherweight rankings, doing seemingly the impossible by stopping Frankie Edgar. We'll discuss all of the major storylines.

In addition, we'll discuss the semi-scandal around Canelo Alvarez and his positive test for clenbuterol. What does that mean for him, will the charges stick and the fight with Gennady Golovkin go through? We'll tackle that topic.

Plus, Georges St-Pierre has hinted at a return, Mirko CroCop is headed to Bellator and March doesn't have a lot of MMA.
