UFC Vegas 66 takes place Dec. 17 at UFC APEX in Las Vegas and serves as the promotion’s final event of the year. Earlier this week, the UFC released the poster for the event promoting the headlining bout between Cannonier and Strickland, currently No. 5 and No. 11, respectively, in the MMA Fighting Global Rankings.
Check out the poster below.
Ready to close out 2022 with Jared Cannonier vs Sean Strickland
— UFC (@ufc) November 22, 2022
Both Cannonier and Strickland look to get back on track after suffering losses at July’s UFC 276 event. Cannonier was on the wrong end of a dominant unanimous decision against then-champion Israel Adesanya in the main event, while Strickland was viciously knocked out by Alex Pereira, who went on to defeat Adesanya earlier this month to become the new 185-pound champion.
