UFC Vegas 66 results are in. If you missed the fights this weekend then you missed your last UFC event of 2022. The fights went down from the UFC Apex in Las Vegas on Saturday, December 17, 2022.

In the main event, #3 Jared Cannonier vs #7 Sean Strickland, the fight ended up going the full distance. In a back and forth competition, it seemed as if either fighter could put the finishing touches on their opponent and win the night. That punch never happened. Instead, the fighters continued to work toward a finish that would come by way of officials. In the end, it was the judges who gave a split decision victory for the #3 ranked Jared Cannonier.



The co-main event was a lightweight bout featuring #9 ranked Arman Tsarukyan vs #12 ranked Damir Ismagulov. Ismagulov found some boxing success in the first round but Tsarukyan mixed the strikes up early and found the back of his opponent and controlled the majority of the second and third rounds. The judges had this one unanimously for the #9 ranked Arman Tsarukyan. Below are the remaining UFC Vegas 66 results for Cannonier vs Strickland.
