UFC 295

Since Jon Jones vacated the light heavyweight throne the division has been left in chaos. The UFC light heavyweight world title has struggled to find a home. One championship match ended in a draw, while two other fighters vacated the crown due to injuries. Most recently, Jamahal Hill vacated the title thus leaving the division crown vacant heading into UFC 295.

Jiří Procházka, of the Czech Republic, held the title after defeating Glover Teixeira but vacated due to a shoulder injury. Now, Procházka will look to re-earn his title against Teixeira’s protege Alex Pereira. Procházka has remained unbeaten since 2015 and is a former RIZIN light heavyweight titleholder.


“Poatan” Alex Pereira is a former UFC middleweight champion who will be going up in weight in this match. He is feared for his knockout power. Additionally, the Brazilian striker is a former two-division champion in GLORY Kickboxing.

Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall have run through the UFC heavyweight division. These two are known for their speed and aggression. Combined in the UFC, these two men have won 11 matchups in the first round by either submission of KO/TKO.
