Headlining the UFC 282 final PPV (pay-per-view) event of 2022, is a blockbuster showdown when former champion Jan Blachowicz takes on Magomed Ankalaev for the vacant light heavyweight championship.
Meanwhile, in the highly-anticipated co-main event, the fan-favorite from Liverpool, Paddy ‘The Baddy’ Pimblett will take his show up to five rounds squaring off against Jared ‘Flash’ Gordon.
Prior to that, we will be treated to a likely barnburner in the welterweight division between perennial fan-favorite, Santiago ‘Argentine Dagger’ Ponzinibbio and Alex ‘The Great White’ Morono; who will be standing in on short notice in this 180lb catchweight bout.
Sandwiched between our main card opener and our top three featured tilts, we get our one-time UFC title challenger Darrent Till, hoping earnestly to get back on track against the surging Dricus Du Plessis.
All of SB Nation’s Combat Sports team is beyond excited for this card… as well as this HOT watch party — in order to shout at the television set right along with you SATURDAY NIGHT, starting fifteen minutes before the PPV main card kicks off!
