Latest UFC 282 fight card, PPV lineup for ‘Blachowicz vs. Ankalaev’ on Dec. 10 in Las Vegas

Newly-minted Light Heavyweight champion, Jiri Prochazka, has vacated his belt because of a shoulder injury (full details here).

UFC 282 will also feature the highly-anticipated returns of rising stars Paddy Pimblett and Bryce Mitchell (in separate bouts).
