UFC 282 PPV price: How much does it cost to watch Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev on ESPN?

Fighting for the UFC light heavyweight title once again, Jan Blachowicz is ready to make the most of his new opportunity. Although he would like a rematch against Glover Teixeira, the man who took the UFC light heavyweight title from him, Blachowicz is focused on the dangerous Magomed Ankalaev at UFC 282 on December 10. 

The vacant light heavyweight title is up for grabs inside the T-Mobile Arena. This comes after Jiri Prochazka relinquished the belt following a shoulder injury. 

Blachowicz won the UFC light heavyweight title against Dominick Reyes in 2020. Losing the belt against Teixeira in 2021, Blachowicz was able to score a rebound TKO win against Aleksandar Rakic in May. Teixeira wanted to face a familiar foe in Blachowicz when Prochazka went down, but the UFC wanted Teixeira to face Anakalev. Teixeira refused, and Blachowicz took his spot. 

The man with “Polish Power” faces someone in Ankalaev who has recently beaten top contenders Volkan Oezdemir, Thiago Santos, and Anthony Smith with ease. Santos beat Blachowicz back in 2019. Blachowicz respects the dominance of the Russian fighter. 

“Very good fighter. Young fighter. A lot of wins in a row,” Blachowicz told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour. “It’s going to be a tough opponent for me, but everybody is tough in the UFC. I’m ready for him. I’m ready for what he’s got for me. We trained for him. We know his weaknesses, we know his best weapons, and I have to just do my best inside the octagon.

“He fought with very good guys, with top fighters. He fought with the fighters who beat me, so he’s very good and I need to be careful for everything, knockout punch power, good wrestling, good control on the ground. I’ve got a lot of respect for him, but in a way, I go to this fight with the win in my head, always.”

Ankalaev has won nine in a row. His last fight was a TKO win against Smith in July.
