Glover Teixeira To Get Second Chance Vs. Jiri Procházka
The rematch between Jiri Procházka and Glover Teixeira will fight place at UFC 282, as was first rumored in August, according to many sources.
Procházka defeated Glover Teixeira to win the light heavyweight championship at UFC 275 in one of the best bouts in UFC history.
It was a thrilling, back-and-forth contest that was decided in the last seconds.
With less than a minute left in the bout, Teixeira was up on the judges’ scorecards.
A general conclusion among fans and analysts is that Teixeira let his first championship defense slip through his fingers, handing the gold to the Czech samurai by rear-naked choke.
The two will now run it again in two months.
The status of this fight’s confirmation as the main event is presently unknown. The T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, is where the event is supposed to start.
Teixeira will have the chance to rewrite the rough but iconic script of his first fight with Procházka at UFC 275 and add a fresh chapter to his amazing title tale at UFC 282.
