UFC Louisville: Jared Cannonier vs. Nassourdine Imavov – Fight Card and UK Times

✔ “The Killa Gorilla” Faces French Talent

This weekend, the UFC heads to Louisville, Kentucky, for the second time ever, featuring a top-ranked middleweight clash between Jared Cannonier and Nassourdine Imavov!

Middleweight Division Shake-Up

The middleweight division has seen significant changes over the past year with the emergence of two new champions and the arrival of rising stars like Khamzat Chimaev and Bo Nickal. Israel “The Last Stylebender” Adesanya reigned over the division for an extended period, but now it’s Dricus du Plessis holding the middleweight crown. This shift opens up opportunities for numerous top-ranked contenders who have yet to face du Plessis.

The winner of Cannonier vs. Imavov is likely only one more victory away from a shot at the middleweight title. Hence, this weekend’s fight carries immense stakes. “The Killa Gorilla” Cannonier enters the main event with two consecutive wins and four victories in his last five fights, with his only loss since 2020 being to Adesanya. On the other hand, Imavov recently triumphed over Roman Dolidze but suffered a unanimous decision loss to former champion Sean Strickland at the beginning of last year.

Co-Main Event and Key Fights

In the co-main event, Dominick Reyes returns after almost two years to face Dustin Jacoby. It’s a must-win situation for Reyes, who, since his controversial decision loss to Jon Jones, has been brutally finished three times in a row.

Other notable fights to watch include:

  • Raul Rosas Jr. vs. Ricky Turcios
  • Thiago Moises vs. Ludovit Klein
  • Cody Stamann vs. Taylor Lapilus
