UFC 282 in Tweets: Fighters react to split draw in Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev

The UFC light heavyweight title remains vacant after Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev fought to a split draw in the main event of UFC 282.

Ankalaev appeared to pull ahead in the later rounds of the fight after Blachowicz badly damaged him with leg kicks early in the fight. But at the end of five rounds, one judge scored it 48-47 for Blachowicz, while the other had it 48-46 for Ankalaev, and the third had it 47-47.

After being booked as the replacement headliner with the injury of Jiri Prochazka, who vacated the belt, Blachowicz and Ankalaev have yet to finish their business, and the UFC remains without a champ at light heavyweight.

Here’s what fighters had to say about the UFC 282 main event.
