UFC 297 is set to take place this Saturday, January 20 live from the Scotiabank Arena in Toronto, Canada. The main and co-main event include a pair of title fights, as Raquel Pennington and Mayra Bueno Silva clash for the vacant women’s bantamweight title. To close out the card, Sean Strickland defends his UFC middleweight title against Dricus Du Plessis. Coverage of the main card begins at 10 p.m. ET on ESPN+ PPV.

Pennington (15-8) is currently on a five-fight winning streak, defeating Ketlen Veira by split decision last January in her last bout. This is her second opportunity at a bantamweight title, Pennington lost to Holly Holm in a championship fight back in January 2020. Bueno Silva (10-2-1) comes in after her second-round submission win over Holly Holm last July was overturned. She had won her last four fights before this result and was subsequently suspended for 4.5 months after a positive drug test.

Strickland (28-5) shocked the world last September, upsetting Israel Adesanya and capturing the undisputed middleweight title at UFC 293. “Tarzan” has reeled off three straight wins and will try to make it four in this title defense. Du Plessis (20-2) has not lost in the octagon since joining the UFC in October 2020. Four of his six wins at the UFC level have come by knockout as he looks to spoil Strickland’s first-ever defense of the middleweight championship.
