It's a matchup that promises high stakes and fierce competition, as both fighters have a lot to prove.

For Mike Malott, this bout marks a homecoming of sorts as he competes on Canadian soil once again. Malott is riding high on a remarkable six-fight win streak, with an impressive trifecta of finishes in his UFC journey.

On the other side of the cage stands Neil Magny, a seasoned UFC veteran, looking to bounce back from a recent unanimous decision loss to Ian Machado Garry at UFC 292 in August. With an impressive 31 UFC appearances under his belt, the 36-year-old is determined to turn the tides and set the stage for a triumphant start to 2024 after a somewhat challenging 1-2 stint in 2023.

As the date for UFC 297 approaches, fans around the world eagerly anticipate the meeting of these two warriors, both with their own unique journey and a burning desire to etch their names in the annals of MMA history.

For Toronto, this is not just an event; it's an unforgettable clash of titans that will have the city roaring with excitement. With both fighters bringing their A-game, expect nothing less than an unforgettable night of octagon action.
