The UFC hasn’t exactly been starting 2022 out on a hot streak. Coming off some time off and a less than enticing PPV offering, the promotion has returned from another short break with a Fight Night card that’s unlikely to whet many appetites. Sean Strickland takes on Jack Hermansson in a quality middleweight main event. After that? it’s prelims all the way down.
