Following a Fight of the Year candidate at UFC 275 in June, Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira meet once again inside the octagon. Prochazka will defend the UFC light heavyweight title against Teixeira, the former champion, at UFC 282 on December 10.
The rematch takes place inside the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Prochazka, 30, submitted the 43-year-old Teixeira in the fifth round of a back-and-forth affair. It was Teixeira’s first defense of the title since he won it at UFC 267. Teixeira previously fought for UFC gold in 2014. After he lost to Jon Jones at UFC 172, he went on an 11-4 run that saw him beat several opponents, including Father Time.
“I thought I was gonna retire when I was 35,” Teixeira told the UFC in 2020. “I never really thought I would be fighting at 40 years old and still loving it. Maybe that was because I was training so much and overtraining most of the time, and you get grumpy and get stressed. There were a few camps when I was like, I can’t wait until I retire; I can’t take this no more. And now I look at Anderson Silva, I look at (Daniel) Cormier, and I’m like, ‘I’m not gonna lose to those guys, I’m gonna keep fighting.’ (Laughs) I love this.”
The Brazilian is ready to even the score against Prochazka. The latter is on a 13-fight win streak and is 3-0 inside the octagon. The former RIZIN light heavyweight champion is battle-tested and is ready to once again go to war against Teixeira.
