UFC Vegas 67: Nassourdine Imavov vs. Sean Strickland fight card, start time, channel guide, betting odds.
The UFC returns to action for the first time in 2023 and it’s coming during a turbulent time for the promotion. The UFC is coming off the heels of its president, Dana White, getting caught on video slapping his wife Anne on New Year’s Eve. White issued an apology and says he accepts the consequences but, so far, no consequences have come and that’s something many MMA fans aren’t letting go of any time soon.
It will be interesting to see if White makes an appearance for UFC Vegas 67: Nassourdine Imavov vs. Kelvin Gastelum which takes place in Las Vegas on Saturday, Jan. 14. He doesn’t often come to UFC APEX cards, but perhaps he’ll want to get his first appearance out of the way in an environment he can control.
And now, on to the fight itself.
The first main event of 2023 will be between Nassourdine Imavov (No. 12) and Kelvin Gastelum (No. 13) who will square off in the middleweight division for what the UFC is billing as a “contender bout.”
UPDATED — Monday — 3 p.m PT
Gastelum has withdrawn from his main event bout and Sean Stickland will step in for him on short notice.
Strickland is coming off a controversial decision loss just last month a fight many felt he won.
Here’s everything you need to know about the fight card to start your fight week off right.
