Sean Strickland vs Jared Cannonier to Main Event Dec 17 UFC Event
It has been officially confirmed that Jared Cannonier will collide against Sean Strickland in the main event of the last UFC event of this year that will take place on December 17.
UFC President Dana White himself confirmed this booking after a report from Helen Lee. Strickland vs Cannonier was initially supposed to take place at the October 15 UFC Fight Night event.
However, Strickland suffered an infection in one of his fingers which resulted in the cancellation of the bout. Now, the promotion has rescheduled the bout to headline the UFC Fight Night event of this year on December 17.
Alex Pereira defeated Sean Strickland at UFC 276 and broke his six-fights winning streak. Meanwhile, Cannonier also suffered a loss at the same event against the middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.
Both of them are among the most dominating fighters in the UFC middleweight division. Now, it remains to be seen which one of them will rebound from their loss at the last UFC event of this year.
