Previews & Predictions: Strickland vs Du Plessis UFC 297 01-20-2024

Game Preview


Fight Preview


UFC main events are highly anticipated due to both their entertainment value and ability to display true martial arts brilliance, making this fight between middleweight champion Sean Strickland and challenger Dricus Du Plessis the centerpiece of UFC 297 at Scotiabank Arena in Toronto on January 20 especially anticipated.


Strickland stands 6-foot-1 and 76 inches at reach, but his striking power clearly outshines Du Plessis with his 95% finish rate and six stoppage victories in their last eight fights.


Strickland boasts a powerful jab that works equally well as both a counter and as the basis of crossing combinations down the center line. He isn’t afraid to change stance mid-combination, which throws off opponents who don’t anticipate his sudden movements. Furthermore, this fighter often steps backwards with punches to put their opponents off-balance before unleashing front kicks followed by powerful boxing combinations to land an effective knockout punch.



Strickland has proven his talent with both strikes and ground fighting through clinch work, while his submission game includes two chokes (guillotine and rear-naked). Both can be used with great effect in his fights.


Du Plessis has demonstrated excellent ground control during his brief UFC career, but has failed to score any takedowns during either of his past two appearances. With an aggressive fighting style and tall frame advantage against an intimidating champion, however, Du Plessis may look for takedown opportunities during these fights.


With his unrestrained confidence and extraordinary athletic desire, it seems hard to discourage Du Plessis. Du Plessis always seems to be dedicated to the task at hand, whether he’s blitzing forward wildly or trying to fend off a high guard. In addition, Du Plessis is proficient in both stances and frequently switches to the southpaw, which confuses opponents even more who are already having trouble understanding his unorthodox timing. This will be a close fight and a very entertaining one for fans.
