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!

Blanchfield was dominant from the opening second of this fight. After a few exchanges with McCann the 23-year-old Blanchfield scored an easy takedown and went to work. She landed heavy ground-and-pound, locked McCann in a crucifix, and worked hard for a kimura finish. Blanchfield had to transition to lock up the stoppage but she eventually made “Meatball” tap.

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

Blanchfield, who turned pro back in 2018, is already 4-0 as a member of the UFC roster. She has quickly worked her way through the competition and just turned McCann into a meatball on the biggest stage yet. Blanchfield should get a shot at the women’s flyweight top 10 her next time out and could line herself up for title contention with a strong 2023.
