MMA Planet brings you the live results for UFC Vegas 47: Jack Hermansson vs. Sean Strickland. The fight card starts on Saturday afternoon at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas.
The event is getting headlined by two Middleweight contenders on the number 6 and 7 on the UFC rankings. Hermansson is looking to bounce back from a loss against Marvin Vettori. Sean Strickland is looking to continue his five-fight winning streak against the Swede. The classic striker vs grappler match-up will be in play and everyone is watching to see how well they match up. Both men are also looking to jump the line at the 185-pound division against the winner of the UFC 271 main event next Saturday and we will bring you the live results.
The co-main event has more action as Middleweight prospects Punahele Soriano and Nick Maximov clash. Soriano had the fairy tale Octagon debut but stumbled against experienced Brendan Allen. He will be looking to get back to winning ways against the protege of the Diaz brothers. Maximov came to the UFC on the back of an impressive Dana White Contender Series showing. In his debut, he showed he wasn’t just hype against Cody Brundage at UFC 266.
There will be two Nigerians on the card as well. Hakeem Dawodu will be fighting fellow featherweight prospect Mike Trizano. This will be Dawodu’s first Octagon trip since his decision loss to Movsar Evloev at UFC 263 in June 2021. Trizano will be looking to build upon his Octagon debut against Ľudovít Klein in 2021. This is technically a high-risk, low-reward fight for Hakeem since a loss means Trizano takes his spot on the UFC rankings. In the middleweight division, Chidi Njokouani faces off against Marc-Andre Barriault in his UFC debut. Chidi had an impressive showing on the Contender Series and will be looking to maintain that momentum. Marc-Andre is currently on a two-fight win streak and will be looking to make it 3 for the first time in his UFC career.
