UFC 282 video: Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev first faceoff for vacant title fight

"

LAS VEGAS – The days are winding down until a new UFC light heavyweight champion is crowned, and as the UFC 282 headliner approaches, Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev finally had their first staredown.

Following Thursday’s pre-fight press conference, which took place at MGM Grand Garden Arena, Blachowicz (29-9 MMA, 12-6 UFC) and Ankalaev (18-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) officially crossed paths for the first time during fight week and had a staredown.

Both men were respectful as they came face-to-face, and you can watch the video above.

Blachowicz and Ankalaev are fighting for vacant gold after Jiri Prochazka suffered a serious should injury that forced him to relinquish the strap. It’s expected he will get a title shot once healthy, but for now, he’s forced to watch two others compete for gold.

UFC 282 takes place Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPN2 and ESPN+.
