Błachowicz vs Ankalaev tops a stacked card at UFC 282 at the T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, this Saturday. Can UFC titan Jan Blachowicz regain his lightweight championship belt?

So, it's the final card of the 2022… but what a card. With Jiri Prochazka forced to vacate the light heavyweight title after a serious shoulder injury, Poland's Jan Blachowicz will now fight it out with rising Russian star Magomed Ankalaev. Can break Blachowicz break Ankalaev's nine-match winning streak?

Before that, Paddy 'The Baddy' Pimblett is hoping to demolish Jared Gordon and pick up his fourth stoppage win and fourth Performance of the Night bonus. The Liverpudlian beat Jordan Leavitt in London in July, winning by submission from a rear naked chokehold. But Gordon will likely prove a tougher opponent.

Elsewhere, the UFC 282 card features a cracking comeback clash featuring British middleweight Darren 'The Gorilla' Till and South Africa's Dricus du Plessis. Till desperately needs to win this, else it could be the end of his UFC run.

The main event – Błachowicz vs Ankalaev – streams from 10pm ET / 3am GMT exclusively on ESPN+ PPV in the US, with the prelims simulcast on ESPN+, ESPNews and ESPN Deportes from 8pm ET / 1am GMT.
