Former middleweight champion Michael Bisping predicts a new champion will be crowned at UFC 303. The event, set to take place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, features a highly anticipated middleweight championship rematch between current champion Alex Pereira and former titleholder Jiri Prochazka.

In their initial encounter at UFC 295, Pereira secured a second-round technical knockout victory over Prochazka. However, Bisping believes this rematch will unfold differently.

“I think the first round is going to be a feeling out process.  Alex isn’t a crazy, overly aggressive madman.  He’s calculated.  He takes his time.  He picks his shots, chips away at the calves and the rest of it.  Jiri’s the flip side.  He’s a madman,” Bisping said.

Bisping acknowledges Pereira’s incredible achievements in the sport. As a two-division champion, Pereira boasts devastating punching power and knockout abilities. His recent victory over Jamahal Hill showcased his prowess but still Michael Bisping thinks that the outcome can be very different this time.

“He’s going to go right at Alex Pereira and turn it into a barnburner straight away because that’s the only way the man fights.  He only knows one speed,” Bisping continued.

“Saturday night, when the dust settles, when it is all over, Jiri Prochazka will be the light heavyweight champion of the world.  Bet your bottom dollar.  I’m willing to put money on that, not because I underestimate Alex Pereira.  It’s because I have a lot of faith in Jiri Prochazka.”

Bisping boldly states that after the dust settles, Jiri Prochazka will emerge as the light heavyweight champion of the world. His faith in Prochazka’s abilities leads him to bet on this outcome in UFC 303.

So, keep your eyes on UFC 303, as we witness a thrilling battle for the title. Will Pereira retain his crown, or will Prochazka claim victory? Only time will tell, but Bisping’s prediction adds an extra layer of excitement to this anticipated rematch.
