UFC Vegas 66 closes out 2022 for UFC on December 17, 2022, which will see Sean Strickland take on Jared Cannonier in the headliner.
Both men are coming off big losses in their previous bout. Cannonier lost the Middleweight title fight to Israel Adesanya at UFC 276. Strickland also lost to current champion Alex Pereira on the same event via knockout which broke his six fights winning streak. Who will bounce back in the fight between two hard hitters?
The co-main event is a lightweight bout between Arman Tsarukyan and Damir Ismagulov. Ismagulov is riding a 19-fights winning streak and has won 5 in a row in UFC so far. Tsarukyan is coming off a defeat to Mateusz Gamrot in June this year. Will he be able to break Ismagulov’s streak?
