LAS VEGAS –  Sean Strickland is determined to work his way into another fight with Alex Pereira , and it all starts with the final UFC main event of 2022. In his first fight since suffering a quick knockout loss to Pereira (6-1 MMA, 4-0 UFC) in their title eliminator at UFC 276 in July, Strickland (25-4 MMA, 12-4 UFC) is set to face Jared Cannonier (15-6 MMA, 8-6 UFC) in the UFC Fight Night 216 main event, which takes place Dec. 17 at the UFC Apex and streams on ESPN+. It’s an important fight for Strickland, who prior to being halted by the now-UFC middleweight titleholder Pereira, had been on a six-fight winning streak and was on the cusp of a title opportunity. Strickland received much criticism for the way in which he approached the fight with the former two-division GLORY kickboxing champion, because he didn’t attempt a single takedown before being dropped and stopped inside three minutes. In Strickland’s mind, there’s not a whole lot of regret about the way it unfolded.
