This will be Sean Strickland’s first title defense since winning the belt from Israel Adesanya at UFC 293 on September 10th, 2023. Dricus Du Plessis’ last fight was a TKO victory over Robert Whitaker at UFC 290 in July of last year.

Du Plessis is on an eight-fight winning streak, with his last loss occurring in October 2018 to Roberto Soldić, a combatant he had beaten just six months earlier. Strickland’s 28 total wins are impressive, but he has lost five times and suffered two defeats in 2022.

Still, the MMA betting sites featured in our list of online sportsbook reviews favor Strickland across the board.
