UFC Vegas 67 Results, Imavov vs Strickland

UFC Vegas 67 Results fan art

The UFC Vegas 67 results have gone down and the first event of the year is in the books. The event aired on ESPN+ live with prelims at 3:00pm CST from UFC APEX in Las Vegas, NV.

In the main event, Nassourdine Imavov was pitted against the last event headliner of 2022, Sean Strickland. The fight was put together on short notice when Kelvin Gastelum had to withdrawal due to an injury sustained during training. Strickland stepped in to save the headline and the fight was a go.

Strickland came out more aggressively than he did against his last match with Cannonier. It was a slug fest throughout the entire fight with Strickland being the busier fighter. Imavov’s corner knew he was behind during the championship rounds, demanding he knockout Strickland or take the loss. The fight did go the distance and Strickland found the judges supported his victory tonight.



Dan Ige vs Damon Jackson was the co-main event of UFC Vegas 67. The results for this one favored Dan Ige. After a rough first round, that was interupted by an eye poke, Ige found his moment in the second round when a left hook found its mark with under a minute left in the round. It was a big shot and a great night for Dan Ige.

Russian fighter Umar Nurmagomedov saw his stock rise, as he finished his opponent with a well placed left that shut Barcelos’ lights out. The win propels the undefeated Russian to (16-0-0). Making him a fighter worth taking notice.

UFC Vegas 67 Fight Card fan art

The UFC Vegas 67 fight card Imavov vs Strickland is on deck for fight fans this Saturday, January 14th from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, NV. The prelims will kick off at 3:00 pm CST and the main card will air at 6:00 pm CST. The event is headlined by Nassourdine Imavov #12 vs Kelvin Gastelum #13 (now #7 Sean Strickland) in the middleweight division. The co-main event features Dan Ige #13 vs Damon Jackson in the featherweight division.

Main Event

The French fighter, Nassourdine Imavov (12-3-0) is working off of 3 straight wins. His most recent win came at the expense of Joaquin Buckley via a unanimous decision victory. Looking to cement himself as a true contender in the division, Imavov looks to increase his win streak. With 7 first round finishes under his belt, he could prove to be a real problem for anyone in the division.



The American fighter (and second half of this main card), Kelvin Gastelum (17-8-0), is attempting to push back into the win column after a couple of straight decision losses. Most recently, Gastelum lost a decision to Jared Cannonier, in August of last year. With 7 knockouts on his record, Gastelum looks to make problems for the French fighter in Vegas this Saturday.

(updated 1/11/2023) – Gastelum is out due to a mouth injury and Sean Strickland is stepping in on short notice. Strickland is in a small group of fighters to headline back to back UFC cards. Strickland is coming off of 2 losses which include a KO loss to the current middleweight UFC champion Alex Pereira and a controversial decision loss to Jared Cannonier.

Co-Main Event

In the co-main event, Dan Ige (15-6-0) vs Damon Jackson (22-4-1), these two featherweights meet at a critical impass for both fighters. Dan Ige is desperate to get into the win column after losing three straight. Meanwhile, Damon Jackson looks to continue to climb the ranks as he is looking to make Dan Ige his fifth straight win to propel him greater heights. The pressure is on for both of these fighters to make a statement in the division.

UFC Orlando Results, Thompson vs Holland

UFC Fight Night Orlando Results fan art

The UFC Orlando Results are in. Thompson vs Holland aired on ESPN+ December 3, 2022 live from Orlando and it was another entertaining night put on by the UFC. The main event had a lot of discussion about being possibly the fight of the year.

The main event, Stephen ‘Wonderboy’ Thompson vs Kevin ‘Trailblazer’ Holland, had fans on the edge of their seats. In the second round it appeared a Thompson spinning heel kick possibly broke Hollands right hand when he attempted to block the kick, but that’s unverified. After three rounds of action, a bazaar turn of events had the fight called for a moment but then they realized it was a groin strike and Holland was allowed to recover and the fight continued. They fought on for another round where Holland was hit with some big shots that he took in stride. However, after the forth round Holland had enough and the fight ended by way of TKO from his corner. An astounding fight by two incredible strikers.

In the co-main event, Bryan Barberena vs #7 and former UFC champion Rafael Dos Anjos, which showcased that Rafael Dos Anjos has still got it. There seemed to be no answer from Barberena for Dos Anjos’ wrestling and ultimately his submission skills as he forced the tap from Barberena early in the second round.

Here’s the official post fight announcement and ring interview for the winner. Below that are the remaining results.

UFC Vegas 65 Results

UFC Vegas 65 fan art

The night went off without a hitch and the UFC Vegas 65 results are in. UFC Vegas 65, Lewis vs Spivac, should have headlined the event. A non-covid, non-weight cut illness caused Lewis to pull out of the event at the last minute. The co-main event was moved up. It featured two light heavyweight fighters Nzechukwu vs Cutelaba. Kennedy Nzechukwu, the slightly favored fighter, coming off of a 3rd KO at his last showing. Ion Cutelaba was coming off of back to back losses. It was maybe not the headline the fans were after, but the fighters rose to the challenge and put on a great show.

In the first round of the main event, Ion Cutelaba looked to be the better prepared fighter. He was relentless with his takedowns and defended one from Kennedy Nzechukwu. The Nigerian, Nzechukwu, turned on the heat in the second round. The end for Cutelaba began with a knee that rocked him early in the round. Nzechukwu turned the heat up further, and after many unanswered strikes, the referee had seen enough and called it at 1:02 of round 2.

Here’s the post-fight press conference, courtesy of the UFC. The remainder of the UFC Vegas 65 results can be seen below. Some audio issues happen about halfway through Kennedy’s interview.

The UFC Vegas 60 results have come to conclusion. Sandhagen defeated Song when doctors called a stop to the fight in the forth round. The event went down Saturday November 17, 2022 from the UFC Apex Arena in Las Vegas, NV.

The headliner lived up to its anticipation when two top 5 bantamweights left it all in the cage. The fight was a great back and forth but ultimately Cory Sandhagen controlled and dominated the fight. A cut opened up on Song earlier in the fight and by the time the fourth round started, the doctor’s had seen enough and called a stop to the bout.

Rodrigues likely won some fans in the co-main event. Gregory ‘Robocop’ Rodrigues took some early punishment from Njokuani in order to bring the pain. A fighter on the rise, be sure to keep an eye out for the talented Gregory Rodrigues as he looks to secure a top 10 seat in the middleweight division.
