UFC 282 is in the books and the light heavyweight division still has no champion.
After going five rounds against Jan Blachowicz and dealing with some nasty leg kicks while at it, Magomed Ankalaev only did enough to convince one judge, while another one gave it to the former champion and the last saw a tie, which resulted in a split draw.
On Twitter, pro fighters did not agree with the result again.

That is great for me and I truly believe I can beat both of those guys! #UFC282— Dustin Jacoby (@thehanyakdj) December 11, 2022
Who the fuck were these judges tonight? @AnkalaevM and @JFlashGordonMMA were robbed badly. I wonder if anyone who works for the NSAC had a little parlay going on tonight that involved those two specific results. #UFC282— Vinny Magalhaes (@VinnyMMA) December 11, 2022
Judges are drunk. I want to try what they are one. Makes you see crazy things apparently— Stefan Struve (@StefanStruve) December 11, 2022
