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.
