UFC returns to Madison Square Garden with the vacant light heavyweight crown up for grabs!
Former light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka takes on former UFC middleweight champion Alex Pereira for the vacant light heavyweight title. Prochazka hasn’t fought since he captured light heavyweight gold over Glover Teixeira in June 2022 due to injury, but he is keen on getting his belt back. Pereira, on the other hand, is seeking his second title in as many weightclasses after capturing middleweight gold in Madison Square Garden in 2022. Dana White called them the “most exciting” and “scariest” fighters on the roster, respectively, so it is sure to bring the New York City crowd to its feet.
In the co-main event Sergei Pavlovich will take on Tom Aspinall for the interim heavyweight title. Pavlovich and Aspinall are two of the most fearsome heavyweights in the division with 27 first-round finishes between them. Pavlovich, 31, comes into the fight on a 6-fight winning streak all via first-round knockout. His most recent trio of wins came against Derrick Lewis, Tai Tuivasa and Curtis Blaydes. Aspinall, on the other hand, is coming off a successful return from a major knee injury suffered in July 2022 as he finished Marcin Tybura in the first round. Neither man has seen a third round in the Octagon!
