Jiri Prochazka is set to battle Alex Pereira in the co-main event of UFC 295 on November 11 in New York City. This fight will crown a new light heavyweight champion.
Prochazka, who previously captured the UFC light heavyweight title, vacated the belt due to a shoulder injury. Now, recovered and ready to compete again, he aims to regain the title he never lost in the cage.
Alex Pereira, a former UFC middleweight champion, is making his second appearance at 205 pounds after a hard-fought win over Jan Blachowicz in his light heavyweight debut. In just his seventh UFC fight, Pereira has the opportunity to win a second-division title when he faces Prochazka in November.
This exciting clash between Prochazka and Pereira will co-headline the event at Madison Square Garden, where UFC heavyweight champion Jon Jones will defend his title against Stipe Miocic in the main event.
