UFC Vegas 66 happens this weekend. Another great fight headlines UFC's final event of 2022 at UFC Apex, which features No. 3 middleweight contender Jared Cannonier squaring off against No. 7 Sean Strickland.

Jared Cannonier vs. Sean Strickland Preview

Cannonier (15-6, fighting out of Anchorage, Alaska) previously challenged for the middleweight title and is back in the Octagon with the intention of sending a message to the division.

Cannonier, a former heavyweight and star at 205 pounds, discovered his niche at 185 pounds, where he has won all but one of his fights by knockout, including victories over Anderson Silva, Derek Brunson, and Kelvin Gastelum. He now intends to maintain his ranking position and reenter the title discussion.

Strickland (25-4, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nevada) aims to make his first career appearance in the middleweight Top 5. He has amused spectators with victories over Jack Hermansson, Uriah Hall, and Brendan Allen. He is a volume striker who applies constant pressure. Strickland now plans to take advantage of his third UFC big event by defeating Cannonier for the first time.

Arman Tsarukyan vs. Damir Ismagulov Preview

Tsarukyan (18-3, competing out of Krasnodar, Russia) is a rising star who wants to conclude the year strong and start his run for the title. With victories against Joel Alvarez, Christos Giagos, and Davi Ramos, Tsarukyan, a Master of Sports in MMA and freestyle wrestling, has established himself as one of the best prospects on the UFC roster. He now intends to defeat Ismagulov to give him his first UFC defeat.
