Alex Pereira, the undisputed light heavyweight champion, has set his sights on a rematch with former gold holder Jiri Prochazka. The Brazilian fighter aims to defend his title in a highly anticipated showdown, eyeing an August comeback to the UFC.

Pereira, known for his knockout power, secured the vacant 205lbs title back in November of last year with a second-round knockout win over Prochazka at UFC 285. Remarkably, he achieved this feat just two years into his Octagon tenure, making him a two-division champion.

In April, Pereira headlined UFC 300, successfully defending his light heavyweight title with a dominant first-round knockout victory over another former champion, Jamahal Hill. His performance solidified his position as the reigning champion in the division.

Alex Pereira Wants to face Jiri Prochazka Next

Despite his recent success, Alex Pereira remains focused on a rematch with Prochazka. During UFC 302 in New Jersey, Pereira confirmed to Sportsnet reporter Aaron Bronsteter that he still wants to face Prochazka next. He expressed his desire to compete as soon as August, although the exact event has not been finalized.

Alex Pereira stated “Whoever they want me to fight [I’ll fight], but the name that’s on the table right now is Jiri Prochazka… We’re still in talks, I would like to fight around August but nothing concrete yet.”

 

While an August return to the Octagon seems ideal for Pereira, there are rumors of a middleweight title main event at UFC 305 in Australia. This potential clash would feature a showdown between Dricus du Plessis and Israel Adesanya. Fans eagerly await the official announcement of both matchups.

The question remains: Who will emerge victorious in the future title fight rematch between Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka? Fight fans can only speculate as they anticipate this high-stakes battle.
