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!

Spann was his aggressive self in the early going and had Reyes backpedaling quite a bit. When Reyes tried to enter range Spann launched a stiff jab followed by a right that caught Reyes flush. Reyes flopped to the canvas and “Superman” flew in for an insurance shot that put “Devastator” to bed.

Spann, 31, looked to be on a different level tonight. “Superman” was coming off an impressive submission win over Ion Cutelaba earlier this year, but Reyes is legit competition atop the 205-pound division. The win should set Spann up for another shot at a top 10 opponent early into next year.
