Cannonier (15-6) came up short in his bid to dethrone reigning middleweight champion Israel Adesanya after five rounds of action at the UFC 276 pay-per-view (PPV) last July. Similarly, Strickland (25-4) is looking to rebound from a knockout loss to Brazilian terror Alex Pereira at UFC 276, a first-round finish that booted “Tarzan” from the 185-pound title chase.
Watch them face off in the embedded video above.
