UFC 282 Błachowicz vs Ankalaev fight preview

This title fight is happening due to Jiří Procházka vacating his crown because of a serious shoulder injury.

That unfortunate event has opened the door for these 2 men to walk through.

What it has provided is a terrific contest between a couple of in-form competitors.

UFC 282

Ankalaev has the longest active winning streak inside the Octagon with 9 and he sits 18-1 overall to this point.

Błachowicz (29-9) has the advantage of experience in the big fight setting, having fought for a title on 5 previous occasions and winning 3 of them.

Ankalaev enters as warm favourite and on form and he should prevail in what will be one of the more entertaining contests of the year.
