The UFC’s final pay-per-view event of 2022 features a battle for the vacant light heavyweight title, and a co-main event showcase for one of the sport’s biggest rising stars.
The main event will see former light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz look to recapture the 205-pound title when he faces top contender Magomed Ankalaev for the title recently vacated by injured Czech champion Jiri Prochazka.
Co-main support will be provided by a lightweight clash between English star Paddy Pimblett and Jared Gordon, with the larger-than-live Liverpudlian taking on the teak-tough American in a bout that will see both men promote their shared passion for mental health causes before throwing down in what should be an action-packed clash at the T-Mobile Arena.
Ahead of the event, the UFC’s “Embedded” cameras are following the fighters behind the scenes as they work their way through fight week, as they arrive in Las Vegas and go through their pre-fight media obligations before the weigh-ins and the final faceoffs ahead of fight night.
As described on the UFC’s official YouTube channel, in Episode 6, “Paddy, Jan and Jared Gordon wrap up their weight cuts. They hit the scales, then Bryce Mitchell, Ilia Topuria, Jared Gordon, Paddy Pimblett, Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blachowicz face off one final time against their UFC 282 opponents at ceremonial weigh-ins.”
