UFC Vegas 66: Jared Cannonier vs. Sean Strickland live results.
It’s that time of the year again, the last UFC card before a month of darkness. UFC Vegas 66 features a middleweight bout between Jared Cannonier and Sean Strickland, who are both coming off losses to the last two middleweight champions. Cannonier dropped his last fight to then-champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 276 in the summer, and Strickland lost to current champion Alex Pereira on that same card. Both are looking to get back in the title picture with a win over the other. The two were meant to face off months ago but a finger injury forced the bout to be postponed.
The co-main event features promising lightweights Arman Tsarukyan and Damir Ismagulov. Tsarukyan has five wins in his last six fights and Ismagulov hasn’t lost since 2015. Rounding out the main card is a Fight of the Night contender between Drew Dober and Bobby Green, who is returning from a six-month suspension.
The featured bout on the prelims is a women’s strawweight matchup between Cheyanne Vlismas, who is on a two-fight win streak, and Cory McKenna who is 2-1 in her young UFC career.
