UFC 295 | Watch HereSun 12 Nov 2023 • 2.00pm
The main card for UFC 295 has finally been confirmed, but it wasn't quite what we were expecting.
With Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic pulling the pin, thanks to a late injury to Jones that requires a significant recovery period. Instead, they'll be replaced with another major title fight. Jiri Prochazka and Alex Pereira will step into the octagon to dual it out for the light heavyweight title.
Both former champions, Prochazka rose to the top after securing the belt after a huge win against Glover Teixeira at UFC 282 in December last year. Only to have to vacate the title a few months later due to a shoulder injury that ruled him out of any competition for close to a year.
Meanwhile, Alex Pereira has been very quickly rising through the ranks for the middleweight division. He shocked the world when he recorded the upset of the year against Israel Adesanya at UFC 281, taking the belt from the previously undefeated champ. In a rematch, Adesanya took the belt straight back, which left Pereira to make the important decision to move up a weight class to try his luck there.
A huge card, stacked full of important match up's. What’s the best place to watch? Live and loud at the pub, where you can catch every minute of the action.
