UFC 282 isn’t the card fans had expected as December approached, with the promotion’s final Pay-Per-View of the year quickly approaching.

In the last leg of the run up to the Las Vegas-based event, its main event fell through, with Jiri Prochazka forced to relinquish his title due to injury. Another former champ dropped off the card, as Robbie Lawler also fell to injury. And Ovince St. Pruex? He couldn’t buy an opponent, losing three before being pulled from the line-up altogether.

What was left? Ex-champ Jan Blachowicz facing Magomed Ankalaev for the belt vacated by Prochazka, promoted from its original co-headlining slot. And Paddy Pimblett, appearing in front of U.S. fans live for the first time (his debut, also in Las Vegas, had come inside an empty UFC Apex).

The consensus pick for Fight of the Night, or at the very least “Best Fight on Paper?” Arguably Bryce Mitchell vs. Ilia Topuria in a battle of undefeated featherweights. As far as curiosity factor, there was Darren Till finally returning from a lengthy, frankly depressing layoff to take on ex-KSW champ Dricus Du Plessis.

Weigh-ins for UFc 282 take place Friday morning in Las Vegas — check below for full results.

Flyweight Daniel Da Silva, weighing in early in the window on Friday morning, missed the mark by three pounds, coming in at 129 for his bout with Vinicius Salvador. Hitting 126, Salvador hit the mark about 30 minutes into Friday’s weigh-ins.
