What To Consider About This UFC Fight Night

UFC Fight Night: Imavov vs. Gastelum (also known as UFC Fight Night 217, UFC on ESPN+ 75, and UFC Vegas 67) will kick off in 2023. The event will take place on January 14 at the UFC Apex Center in Las Vegas, Nevada, which means there will be no Fight Night events or pay-per-views for the following three weeks.

The main event on the UFC Fight Night card will be a middleweight fight between No.12-ranked title challenger Nassourdine and No.13-seeded Kelvin Gastelum. When he takes on the UFC veteran, the up-and-coming Imavov will look to split into the divisional top 10 and fight his way back up to the top.

This is an exciting event that you cannot lose, and a top-rated Mesa bar is your best option, especially if you cannot go to the UFC Apex Center. 

The fight was originally scheduled for UFC 273 in April of this year. However, the fight had to be rescheduled after Imavov was forced to withdraw due to visa issues.

Predictions for UFC Fight Night: Imavov vs. Gastelum

Many people debate predictions for UFC Fight Nights at a Mesa sports bar and grill to make the environment friendly and entertaining. There’s nothing better than talking about your favorite moves with friends while sipping a refreshing beer.

But, before imagining that environment, let’s check the most common predictions for this fight:

Kelvin Gastelum vs Nassourdine Imavov

Kelvin Gastelum has had a rough patch recently, despite having faced the who’s-who of the middleweight div. The 31-year-old has lost four of his last five fights since challenging Israel Adesanya for the temporary 185-pound title, and he is coming off back-to-back defeats.

Nassourdine Imavov, his opponent, has skyrocketed to No.12 in the 185-pound rankings after three straight victories, including two consecutive wins in 2021. In his most recent show, in September, the Frenchman defeated a tough Joaquin Buckley.

Imavov will try to take advantage of this chance to get his first big name in Gastelum. In the meantime, the UFC veteran is well-informed that another defeat could be his final in the sport. This is a high-stakes matchup for both men, and picking a winner is difficult. In this case, we’ll go with the favorite.

What we know for sure is that it’s going to be an unforgettable fight. And as a unique event, a Mesa sports bar is usually the best place to enjoy it.
