Middleweight contestants Jack Hermansson and Sean Strickland are anticipated to be momentous at a forthcoming UFC Fight Night event on 5th Feb.
According to the report, both fighters should be validating their individual agreements soon. The UFC event on 5th Feb currently does not have a site or venue, but it will be the third event of 2022 for the promotion.
33 years old Hermansson is coming off a leading pronouncement victory over Edmen Shahbazyan back in May. “Joker” had lost his earlier fight in the main event fight against Italian contender Marvin Vettori, but is still 6-2 in of the Octagon since the start of 2018.
Hermansson will require more than a victory over Strickland to present himself back into title dispute, but it would be an amazing start to his 2022 campaign. At last, “Joker” can save some expression after getting thrashed by Khamzat Chimaev in a wrestling match last month.
30 years old Strickland has been a man on a visionary mission since moving back up to middleweight in October. 2020. Meanwhile leaving the welterweight division Strickland has produced a 4-0 record inside of the Octagon, with a fresh verdict triumph over Uriah Hall in his first-ever UFC main occasion bid. If Strickland is talented enough to walk through Hermansson this February and force his division record to 5-0 it would be tough not to consider him a top title contestant for 2022.
