A previous hero and a rising star go head to head to decide another UFC light heavyweight champion on December 10. Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev battle for gold at UFC 282.
The battle happens inside Las Vegas’ T-Versatile Field. Champion Jiri Prochazka surrendered the belt subsequent to experiencing a shoulder injury before his battle against Glover Teixeira.
Blachowicz, who Teixeira beat for the light heavyweight title in 2021, bounced back with a success over Aleksandar Rakic in May. The previous boss is the longshot in this battle (+220 for each BetMGM), while Ankalaev is the – 275 number one. That doesn’t appear to stage the man with “Clean Power,” who is prepared to resist all naysayers.
“I’m generally a longshot, so I couldn’t care less,” Blachowicz told The Schmo, through MMA Addict. “I’m about to go there and go about my business, win the battle, celebrate, and take the belt to Poland once more. This is the thing I need to do, and I will do. I couldn’t care less in the event that I’m the longshot or not.”
Anakalev made his star debut in 2014. Since losing his UFC debut in 2018 against Paul Craig, Ankalaev has won nine in succession. His last battle was a technical knockout success against Anthony Smith in July.
