The most anticipated light-heavyweight scrap between Dominick Reyes (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) and Jiri Prochazka (27-3-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) just went down at UFC Vegas 25. Reyes was looking to bounce back from a two-fight skid and get back on his race to the title, and Jiri was looking to get his second UFC victory in the bag.
Round 1: Fight started with both fighters taking the center of the octagon, Reyes threw a nice kick to the body but Prochazka’s weird and unusual style seemed too much for Reyes, he stunned him with a big right hand and pushed Reyes back to the canvas, he kept on landing significant strikes on him all throughout the round. Reyes was looking for that counter left and he landed a few but Prochazkas’s chin is tough and he just eats all of them and finishes strong.
