UFC free fight: Jiri Prochazka melts Dominick Reyes with hellish spinning elbow

Jiri Prochazka has given UFC fans some nasty finishes, but perhaps none nastier than his knockout win over Dominick Reyes.

Back in May 2021, Prochazka viciously knocked out Reyes with a spinning elbow in the main event of UFC on ESPN 23 in Las Vegas. It was a brutal finish to a brutal war, and it’s arguably among the best knockouts in UFC history. Obviously, Prochazka won a Performance of the Night and a Fight of the Night bonus for his efforts, taking home an extra $100,000.

Prochazka (29-3-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) returns in the main event of Saturday’s UFC 295, which takes place at Madison Square Garden in New York. The main card airs on pay-per-view following prelims on ESPNews and early prelims on ESPN+.

Prochazka takes on Alex Pereira (8-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) for the vacant light heavyweight title. It’s his first fight back since vacating the undisputed UFC light heavyweight title last November due to a shoulder injury.
