UFC 282 – Severe MMA Staff Predictions

It’s hard to believe that 2022 is almost over already, and with that comes the final UFC PPV of the year.

After injury resulted in 205lbs king Jiří Procházka unexpectedly vacating his title, former champion Jan Blachowicz and surging Mahoney Ankalaev will compete for the vacant light heavyweight title in the main event of UFC 282.

In the co-main event, rising Scouse star Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett takes on Jared “Flash” Gordon. With notable personalities Darren Till and Bryce Mitchell facing stern tests in Dricus Du Plessis and Ilia Topuria, there’s something for everyone on this card.
