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.
