UFC 282 will be headlined with a light heavyweight bout between No. 2 Jan Blachowicz and No. 3 Magomed Ankalaev. This will be the first time the two have met in the octagon, and it should be a pretty competitive fight. Blachowicz is a former champion who is looking to win the title for the second time in his career. With a win, Ankalaev would make it ten straight wins, and continue his meteoric rise since joining the UFC.
