Why Should I Watch UFC Vegas 66?
This is the last UFC card of the year 2022, so you can expect fireworks. The main event is going to be very interesting, as pretty much-underrated trash-talker Sean Strickland is trying to bounce back after a brutal knockout loss to Alex Pereira, while Jared Cannonier is another heavy-handed knockout machine. Unless Strickland plays a boring chess game, this fight will hardly last for five rounds.
If you’re a fan of great wrestling/transition combat, I kindly advise you to take a look at the match between two grappling and scrambling phenoms, Arman Tsarukyan and Damir Ismagulov. Arman is a better striker, but Damir’s stamina is amazing, this could be lovely three-round combat.
Drew Dober vs Bobby Green and Cody Brundage vs Michal Oleksiejczuk will probably not go the distance, these are combats of heavyweight strikers.
Said Nurmagomedov vs Saidyokub Kakhramonov draws the most attention in the UFC preliminary card, as both of the guys are the top prospects of the UFC 135-pound division. The winner will probably advance a lot in rankings and get the opportunity to defeat a ranked fighter.
