How will the fight play out?
Nassourdine Imavov had a rough start to his professional career, losing his debut fight in 2016. However, he didn’t let that defeat define him and went on to compete for multiple promotions worldwide. Imavov joined the UFC in 2020, and his last fight was a unanimous decision win against Joaquin Buckley in September.
On the other hand, Sean Strickland made his pro debut in 2008 and had a successful run in promotions like King of the Cage, where he held the middleweight championship and defended it five times. He joined the UFC in 2014 and has a 12-4 record with the promotion. Strickland had a six-fight win streak, but it was broken by Alex Pereira, who went on to beat Israel Adesanya for the UFC middleweight title. This is the second event in a row where Strickland is the main event. His last fight was in December 2022, where he lost to Jared Cannonier via split decision.
