Reaction | Ngannou Now Free Agent, Jones vs. Gane Title Fight Set, Strickland Shines On Short Notice

Francis Ngannou is officially a free agent, and a new heavyweight champion will be crowned on March 4 as Dana White confirmed that Jon Jones will return at #UFC285 to face Ciryl Gane for the vacant title in the main event.

Additionally, Sean Strickland went out to the octagon on less than a week’s notice and defeated the surging Nassourdine Imavov in the main event of the #UFC’s first card of 2023. Where does Strickland go from a huge short notice win?

Following #UFCVegas67, MMA Fighting’s Mike Heck and Shaheen Al-Shatti react to the Jones vs. Gane fight, Strickland’s victory, Dan Ige’s incredible walk-off KO against Damon Jackson, Umar Nurmagomedov’s frightening finish of Raoni Barcelos in the main card opener, and more.
