UFC 282

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will return to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., Dec. 10, 2022, with its year-end pay-per-view (PPV) event. In UFC 282's main event, former Light Heavyweight champion, Jan Blachowicz, will battle No. 3-seeded contender, Magomed Ankalaev, for the vacant 205-pound strap after newly-minted division champion, Jiri Prochazka, suffered a serious shoulder injury. In the co-feature, breakout British star, Paddy Pimblett, will look to keep his momentum going in his first-ever stateside bout inside the Octagon when he locks horns with grizzled Featherweight veteran, Jared Gordon. We'll stockpile all the real-time UFC 282 updates, odds, start time, tickets, weigh ins, predictions, previews, video highlights, press conferences, winners, losers and much more from "Sin City" right here before, during and well after the ESPN+-streamed live PPV show concludes.
