Watch: UFC 282 Trailer Teases Jiri Prochazka Vs. Glover Teixeira Rematch
They will collide again on December 10.
One of UFC’s craziest and most exciting battles occurred when Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira first met.
In December, they may surpass that performance.
UFC 282, which takes place on December 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, features a rematch between Prochazka and Teixeira as its main event.
At UFC 275 this past June, Prochazka defeated Teixeira via fifth-round submission to end a fiercely contested contest and claim the title of UFC light heavyweight champion.
Highlights from their fight, which demanded a rematch right after, are shown in the video.
The co-main event includes Jan Blachowicz, a former light heavyweight champion, against Magomed Ankalaev.
Last year, Blachowicz lost the championship to Teixeira, but he bounced back this year by defeating Aleksandar Rakic in May.
With nine straight victories, Ankalaev has the longest winning run in the 205-pound division of the UFC. He now has the difficult challenge of stopping him.
