A night of action in Las Vegas as Pereira takes on Prochazka again for the title!

This weekend, UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira will defend his title against top contender Jiri Prochazka at UFC 303 in Las Vegas, Nevada. The highly anticipated event will feature this blockbuster rematch as the main attraction.

Pereira’s Reflections on His Career

In a recent interview with The MacLife, Pereira discussed his upcoming fight and his future in the sport. The 36-year-old Brazilian, who is known for his relentless work ethic, expressed a desire to remain active before considering retirement.

“I like taking these opportunities. I’ll soon be 37, and I don’t know how long I’ll keep competing. This is a great chance for me to stay active. I’m always training, never taking breaks, so I just take these fights when the opportunity arises.”


Co-Main Event: Ortega vs. Lopes

The co-main event will see former featherweight title challenger Brian Ortega facing rising star Diego Lopes. Lopes has been impressive since his UFC debut, amassing three consecutive wins, including a dominant knockout over Sodiq Yusuff at UFC 300 earlier this year.
