UFC 282 Fight Card

UFC 282 takes place this coming Saturday night in Las Vegas and we’ve got the full fight card for you below.

In the main event of the evening the collapse of the originally scheduled Jiri Prochazka vs. Glover Teixeira light-heavyweight title due to an injury to the champion has led to him vacating the title and the co-main event fight between former champ Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev now topping the bill as they battle it out for the vacant belt.

That late shuffle to the line-up has also resulted in UK star Paddy Pimblett stepping up to co-main event duties as he looks to build on a three-fight winning streak against Jared Gordon, who has won four of his last five bouts.

Former welterweight champion Robbie Lawler is in a tough spot at this late stage in his career with five losses from his last six fights as he attempts to turn things around against Santiago Ponzinibbio, who has been defeated in three of his last four appearances.

After four losses in his last five fights and well over a year out of action since, Darren Till finally returns to the Octagon against the in-form Driscus du Plessis, who has won all three of his UFC fights so far.

Opening up the main card will be a clash of undefeated featherweights, with Bryce Mitchell being 15-0, with six wins in the UFC so far, while Ilia Topuria is 12-0 with three of his four UFC victories to date coming by way of knockout.
