Conor McGregor’s injury has led to his withdrawal from UFC 303, postponing his highly anticipated fight with Michael Chandler to later in the year. This unexpected turn of events left the promotion searching for a replacement main event. They have now announced an exciting bout that has fans eagerly anticipating the upcoming fight card.

The new main event will feature Alex Pereira defending his UFC light heavyweight championship against Jiri Prochazka. This is a rematch from their previous encounter last year, where Pereira secured a victory by finishing Prochazka to claim the title. The announcement has generated significant buzz, as many fans have been hoping for this rematch.

A victory in this rematch could significantly bolster Pereira’s status in the sport, potentially even bringing him into the conversation for the greatest of all time (GOAT). Despite how unlikely such a discussion may have seemed in the past, Pereira’s willingness to take risks and his current momentum have made this a real possibility.
