Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of 5 bouts on this 13-bout UFC 282: 'Blachowicz vs Ankalaev' PPV event for you, today, Dec. 8th. 2022. "UFC 282 has had its fair share of injuries to deal with. While dealing with the loss of the main event is definitely a major blow, however, most of the rest of the card isn’t any worse for the cancellations. We’ll still get a light heavyweight title fight at the top, between Jan Blachowicz & Magomed Ankalaev. Paired up with that we’ve got the return of Paddy Pimblett and a surefire thriller between Ilia Topuria and Bryce Mitchell..." - Zane Simon 12.08.22 For those fans who wish to dive deeper into the MAIN CARD, check out that version of the MMA Vivi which now airs around 5/2AM ETPT every Thursday right here on our SC channel.
