UFC Vegas 66: The five reasons why you need to see Cannonier vs. Strickland

Cannonier and Strickland both are looking for the win

Sean Strickland will take part in the fight after Alex Pereira’s victory over him at UFC 276 stopped his six-bout winning streak. It’s interesting to note that middleweight champion Israel Adesanya defeated headliner Cannonier in the same event.

Thus, both fighters are making a comeback following a setback. As a result, both combatants will want to win and resume their winning streak.

Both are experienced fighters

The 38-year-old “Killa Gorilla” has a 15-6-0 record and has faced off against a number of great opponents, including Dominick Reyes, Israel Adesanya, and many others. The 31-year-old Strickland, who has a record of 25-4-0, is in contrast to Cannonier, who had a six-match winning streak prior to his most recent defeat.

He gained additional experience by competing against several extremely talented people, including Alex Pereira, Kamaru Usman, and many more. Given that they have both competed against renowned personalities in countless fights, both of them have experience as fighters, thus one should definitely go since they have a lot to offer.

Both have a similar fighting style

Although Strickland enters this bout with a height advantage, it is important to remember that both have similar fighting styles. Both have the same track record of eliminating their opponent via KO/TKO, having done so ten times in their professional careers. Talking about the stance, in contrast, Strickland has an Orthodox stance while Cannonier has a switch stance.

Strickland is coming as the underdog for the first time since 2017

This will be the year’s final main event bout

The fact that this will be this year’s final main event match means that fans are expecting it to be a slugfest, which is another factor that gets them amped. And without a doubt, it is anticipated that two combatants will put on a display that will live long in the memories of the audience and serve as the lynchpin of the event to begin the new year.
