UFC 282 is on the cards and suffice it to say the UFC has an incredible pay-per-view in store for its fans. 282 will be the final pay-per-view of the year, which will witness a new light heavyweight king being crowned. 

The main event will see Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalev battle it out in the middle of the octagon for the vacant, undisputed UFC light heavyweight championship.

For the ones that have been living under a rock for the past couple of weeks, the landscape of the PPV was forced to be restructured, given the magnitude of the injury sustained by former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Procházka.

Procházka was set to collide with former UFC light heavyweight champion Glover Texeira in a rematch. Their first encounter blew the roof off the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.

Procházka emerging victorious. Having been losing the fight on the scorecards, the Czech gladiator pulled a comeback for the ages, submitting the Jiu-Jitsu ace, Glover Texeira. 

Unfortunately, Prozaskha suffered a gruesome shoulder injury which will require at least a year of rehabilitation. As such, the UFC gifted Jan Blachowicz another opportunity to compete for the title and will face surging contender Magomed Ankalaev in a critical clash.

Paddy Pimblett vs Jared Gordon!

The co-main event can hereby be referred to as the ‘People’s main event’ as Paddy Pimblett is set to make his highly anticipated return to the octagon. Pimblett was last seen in action when he forced the tap from Jordan Leavitt in October. 

To say that Pimblett is a budding superstar in the making would be an outright understatement, given the polarizing figure he is. Not to mention the stellar patronage he possesses. 

Jared Gordon on the other hand is an established lightweight contender, who has had an impressive past three years, racking up four victories and just one loss within the stretch. A strenuous challenge lies awaiting Paddy.

Darren Till vs Dricus Du Plessis

The award for the most underrated fight of this spectacular fight card goes to Darren Till and Dricius du Plessis. The T-Mobile arena will pay homage to the return of the former UFC Welterweight title challenger.

Till has had an abysmal past couple of years. Since his arrival at 185lbs, the Briton has amassed just a single victory against Kelvin Gastelum in 2018. Since then, he has sustained a barrage of losses against some of the very best middleweights on the planet today. 

Dricus du Plessis on the other hand has been thriving in the shark tank of a division so far. The South African has a sublime MMA record of 17 victories and just two defeats. The 28-year-old is undefeated in his UFC tenure so far and is currently riding a five-fight win streak.

Make no mistake about it, the bout will be electrifying.
