UFC 282 video: Jiri Prochazka, Glover Teixeira face off ahead of title rematch

NEW YORK – Exactly one month out from their UFC 282 main event, Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira got together for a faceoff to promote their title-fight rematch.

In the midst of UFC 281 fight week, Prochazka (29-3-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and Teixeira (33-8 MMA, 16-6 UFC) traveled to Manhattan to attend a media day to promote their headliner, which takes place Dec. 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The first matchup between the two took place at UFC 275 in June, with Prochazka claiming the 205-pound strap from Teixeira by fifth-round submission in what currently stands as a top Fight of the Year candidate.

Following such a memorable battle, the promotion opted for an immediate rematch, which is rapidly approaching.

Watch the video above to see Prochazka and Teixeira face off for the first time since their first fight.
