A day after the UFC 283 poster arriving, the artwork promoting UFC Vegas 67 a week earlier has now dropped.

The UFC’s first event of 2023 will be held at the Apex in Las Vegas, with a middleweight match-up topping the card. That sees Kelvin Gastelum (16-8, 1NC) look to shake off a two-fight losing streak against the surging Nassourdine Imavov (12-3).

Imavov enters the fight off a strong showing in September at UFC Paris, in front of his hometown fans. “The Russian Sniper,” a Russian-born French mixed martial artist, claimed a unanimous decision against Joaquin Buckley in the fight. That extended his win streak to three; overall, he’s 4-1 inside the octagon.

Gastelum has back-to-back losses to Robert Whittaker and Jared Cannonier, a former champ and recent title challenger. But his slump is even worse when considering he has just one win since 2018, against Ian Heinisch last year.

January’s showdown feels like a passing of the guard moment, at least potentially, as a result.

  • Kelvin Gastelum vs. Nassourdine Imavov
