The Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), the world leader in mixed martial arts (MMA), hosted UFC 282 in Paradise, Nevada’s T-Mobile Arena on December 10, 2022. This event was part of the pop culture surrounding Las Vegas, which is deeply synonymous with combat sports. Notably, UFC 282 featured a variety of gripping bouts, last-minute fighter substitutions, title changes, and a record number of awarded bonuses.

2022 had seen the spectacle of some of the most interesting MMA fights. However, UFC 282: Błachowicz vs. Ankalaev distinguished itself by reshaping the landscape of the Light Heavyweight division. The original main event slated reigning champion Jiří Procházka against former champion Glover Teixeira. This rematch was a much-anticipated sequel to their nail-biting encounter at UFC 275 in June, where Procházka edged the battle in the fifth round through submission.

However, the fates had other plans. Procházka suffered a severe shoulder injury, which not only shelved him off the roster, but also led him to vacate his title due to the extended six months of recovery necessitated by surgery. Teixeira declined a substitute fight against the dangerous Magomed Ankalaev leaving a vacuum at the top of the Light Heavyweight standings. Eventually, the promoters decided to upgrade the bout between former champion Jan Błachowicz and Ankalaev to the main event and contested for the now-vacant championship.

The card also featured a bout between Jairzinho Rozenstruik and Chris Daukaus, in a heavyweight contest, moved from an earlier event, UFC Fight Night: Dern vs. Yan for reasons undisclosed.

Amid swirls of injury rumours, Bo Nickal, a newcomer to UFC, was scheduled to fight Jamie Pickett in a middleweight bout. However, Nickal withdrew due to an injury in late October and the contest was cancelled.

Another enchanting light heavyweight match was planned between one-time title challenger Alexander Gustafsson and ex-interim title contender Ovince Saint Preux. Despite Gustafsson retreating due to an undisclosed reason, 2018 PFL heavyweight tournament victor Philipe Lins filled in. Subsequently, Lins had to step down for undisclosed reasons. Antonio Trocoli, the next chosen substitute withdrew because of visa issues, leading to the cancellation of the fight. Saint Preux was also pulled off the card as the UFC could not arrange a replacement in time.

Newcomer Steven Koslow, replacing Ronnie Lawrence for undisclosed reasons, clashed with Cameron Saaiman in a bantamweight fight. Lawrence initially planned to fight Saaiman but had stepped back a week prior.

Moreover, the former UFC Welterweight Champion Robbie Lawler was originally matched against Santiago Ponzinibbio. However, Lawler withdrew because of an undisclosed injury only a week before the match. Alex Morono was brought in as a substitute and the fight was held at a catchweight of 180 pounds.

In the flyweight division, a match was planned between Daniel da Silva and Vinicius Salvador. However, after weighing in at 129 pounds, breaching the weight limit, da Silva was withdrawn from the card due to an undisclosed medical issue, scrapping the bout altogether.

Despite the tumultuous rearrangements, UFC 282 set a remarkable record. Eleven fighters were awarded bonuses worth $50,000 each – the highest number of post-fight bonuses ever given at a single UFC event. The drama, excitement, and unpredictable nature of UFC 282 solidified the night’s place in the annals of MMA history.
