UFC 282 official poster released


Light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka and former titleholder Glover Teixeira will reflect on their thrilling first encounter at UFC 282.

The UFC on Tuesday released the official poster for the event, which takes place Dec. 10 at T-Mobile Arena. The event’s main card is streamed live on ESPN+ pay-per-view.

The poster can be seen below.

Prochazka and Teixeira fought for the first time in June at UFC 275. In a thrilling five-round “Fight of the Year” contender, the light heavyweights battled it out before Prochazka grabbed a submission from rear choke.

Prochazka called the performance one of the worst of his career, while Teixeira conceded an error in initiating the wrestling exchange that led to his submission loss.

In most betting lines, the incumbent champion is around a -200 favorite to retain the belt.

UFC 282 is co-led by a light heavyweight reunion between former champion Jan Blachowicz and rising contender Magomed Ankalaev.
