A new era begins at UFC 297 and MMASucka has your live results right here!

Two Title Fights In Toronto

For the first time since 2017, a middleweight title fight will take place without UFC superstar, Israel Adesanya. Newly crowned champion Sean Strickland defends the strap against Dricus Du Plessis in a pay-per-view headliner at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.

This marks Strickland’s very first title defense after dominating Adesanya in Australia last September. The American goes for his fourth-straight victory against Du Plessis, who is undefeated in the Octagon. Du Plessis enters his first UFC title fight on a six-fight win streak. He’ll look to bring the belt back to South Africa.

New blood runs through the women’s bantamweight division as well as Mayra Bueno Silva battles Raquel Pennington. For ‘Rocky’, this isn’t her first title shot as she fought and lost to Amanda Nunes in 2018. Years later, Pennington gets a second chance to wear UFC gold with the long-reigning champ Nunes retiring last June.

On the other hand, Bueno Silva hopes to keep the women’s bantamweight belt in Brazil. The #3 ranked contender is coming off a submission win over past UFC title holder Holly Holm, which was later overturned to a no-contest because of a positive drug test for ritalinic acid.

The Rest Of The Card

On the main card, UFC veteran Neil Magny will try to get back into the win column over hometown hero, Mike Mallott. Sean Strickland’s training partner, Chris Curtis takes on Marc-Andre Barriault and in a featherweight affair, Arnold Allen looks to bounce Movsar Evolve from the ranks of the undefeated.

Brad Katona is also back, with the two-time ‘The Ultimate Fighter’ Champion challenging Garrett Armfield in his long-awaited return to the UFC.
