UFC 282 kicks off with a five-fight card that is culminating with Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev for the vacant UFC light heavyweight championship. The event will take place Saturday, December 10 from the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The co-feature on the card is a lightweight bout between rising British fighter Paddy Pimblett (19-3) and veteran Jared Gordon (19-5). Pimblett is arguably the promotion’s biggest star in England and could cement himself as a future PPV star with a strong performance. He is a -250 favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook entering the fight. Gordon is on the moneyline at +210.
The main card for the event is scheduled to get started at 10 p.m. ET and will be available for purchase through ESPN+ PPV. Pimblett vs. Gordon is the fourth fight on the main card. Their bout is likely to get going around 11:30 p.m. ET, depending on the length of the undercard and previous bouts on the card.
