YEAR-END PPV BLOWOUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) closes out its final pay-per-view (PPV) of the year on Sat., Dec. 10, 2022, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Jan Blachowicz, looking to stop the momentum of No. 3-seeded Magomed Ankalaev. In the co-main event of UFC 282, which will take place inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, breakout star, Paddy Pimblett, intends to keep his momentum going at the expense of gritty veteran, Jared Gordon.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Ulberg looked calm and collected from the opening bell. He utilized a few whipping calf kicks to compromise the leg of Negumereanu. That allowed Ulberg to land his punches from range. A beautiful left hook caught Negumereanu and put him to the canvas. Ulberg rushed in for a few more devastating punches to earn the quick stoppage.

Check out the final moments below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Ulberg, 31, is now 3-1 since joining the UFC as a relatively inexperienced fighter back in 2021. The City Kickboxing striker has looked better and better each time we’ve seen him and it was on full display tonight. It wouldn’t be surprising to see UFC book Ulberg against a top 15 light heavyweight his next time out.
