Brunson vs Cannonier was scheduled to face on January 22, 2022, at UFC 270. However, for undisclosed reasons, the bout was moved to UFC 271 on February 12, 2022.

Brunson is likely the stiffest wrestling test Cannonier has faced since his drop down to Middleweight. To avoid being planted on the canvas, Cannonier has to ensure that he doesn’t give away easy shots. Ideally, he’ll be the man moving forward, but he’ll do so from his own distance.
