Find Start Times And Fight Card Info For UFC 297 Live From Rogers Arena In Toronto, Canada, On January 20

Fresh from one of 2023's most impressive performances, Sean Strickland will defend his UFC middleweight title for the first time on January 20, as he travels to Toronto's Scotiabank Arena to battle South African slugger Dricus Du Plessis in the main event of UFC 297. 

Strickland's upset of Israel Adesanya came as no surprise to those in the new champ's gym, and now he'll look to cement his place atop the 185-pound weight class by defeating Du Plessis, who is perfect in six UFC fights. 

Plus, a new champion will be crowned in the women's bantamweight division, as Raquel Pennington squares off with Mayra Bueno Silva in a co-main event that promises fireworks.
