Light heavyweights headline this week with the UFC heading back to Las Vegas as MMASucka provides UFC Vegas 25 results throughout the card. Following back-to-back losses, including his most recent outing for the vacant title, Dominick Reyes looks to get a win. Standing in his way will be former Rizin light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka.
In Reyes’ last two fights, he has challenged for the UFC light heavyweight title. The first of those was against the undisputed champion Jon Jones. Reyes put up a very close fight but unfortunately he would end up losing by unanimous decision. After the title was vacated by Jones later that year, Reyes got another chance, this time at the vacant title, as he faced Jan Blachowicz at UFC 253. Reyes came up short once again, this time being finished, as Blachowicz won the title with a second round TKO win. Reyes looks to get back and track and work towards another shot and picking up a big win at UFC Vegas 25 would surely help.
As for Prochazka, he made his UFC debut in his last fight, facing off against Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 251. Prochazka won the fight that night, finishing Oezdemir in the second round by knockout. The win gave Prochazka his eleventh straight as well as his ninth straight finish by KO/TKO. If he can add another big finish to his list by taking out Reyes, Prochazka could be one or two fights away from a title shot.
