UFC 282 Pre-Fight Press Conference Highlights & Faceoffs

Ahead of the final UFC pay-per-view of 2022, some of the fighters on the UFC 282 card took questions at the pre-fight press conference.

UFC 282 is headlined by a vacant light heavyweight title bout between former champion Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev. This after Jiří Procházka suffered an injury that forced him to vacate the title.

The co-main event features the British star Paddy Pimblett returning against Jared Gordon. The winner could move one step closer to a spot in the lightweight rankings.

Welterweight Santiago Ponzinibbio returns against short-notice replacement Alex Morono, while middleweights Dricus du Plessis and Darren Till offer a potential ‘Fight of the Night’ matchup.

The main card will open up with a matchup between undefeated featherweights Bryce Mitchell and Ilia Topuria.
