Alex Pereira vs. Jiri Prochazka

Pereira (10-2) is the reigning light heavyweight champion after picking up a second-round TKO victory to claim the vacant belt in the first fight between these two less than a year ago. Coming from a kickboxing background, the stand-up striking game is his specialty. Pereira found success with leg kicks early on in the first meeting, but it was ultimately his dangerous left hook that opened the door to a stoppage victory. He used that same punch to drop former champ Jamahal Hill in his first light heavyweight title defense at UFC 300 in April. He’s making a quick turnaround to fight here, stepping in for the injured Conor McGregor after he pulled out of his scheduled bout with Michael Chandler due to injury.

Prochazka (30-4-1) also last fought at UFC 300, defeating Aleksandar Rakic via TKO in a comeback effort after losing the opening round. Prochazka also excels in the striking game, but he employs a more aggressive and wide-open style that at times leaves him vulnerable to counters. He managed to take Pereira down in the first round of their last fight, and he may look to rely more on his ground game against a champion who’s such a dangerous striker. Prochazka only has three submission wins in his pro career, but the last of those came against Pereira’s longtime coach Glover Teixeira in a light heavyweight title fight in 2022.

While neither fighter has a reputation as an especially fast starter, Pereira has proven more likely to dispatch opponents in the opening round. He won his last fight with an early knockout in the first round, his second first-round finish in eight fights with the UFC. Prochazka, on the other hand, does not have a first-round finish since joining the UFC in 2020. He does, however, have three knockout wins in the second round during that span.
