The Las Vegas-based promotion announced in a release on Tuesday
that Prochazka vs. Teixeira will serve as the main event for
UFC 282 at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on Dec. 10. The
timing is interesting considering earlier in the day former light
heavyweight champion Jon Jones
tweeted that he is
preparing as if he will face Stipe
Miocic at UFC 282.
Prochazka and Teixeira initially squared off at UFC 275, with
Prochazka claiming the 205-pound belt with a rear-naked choke at
the 4:32 mark of Round 5. Had Teixeira survived until the final
horn, he likely would have won a unanimous decision. The UFC is
currently promoting a potential light heavyweight title eliminator
Blachowicz and Magomed
Ankalaev as the evening’s co-main event.
Several other undercard bouts were confirmed for UFC 282, including
Salvador vs. Daniel
Lacerda at flyweight; Ronnie
Lawrence vs. Cameron
Saaiman at bantamweight and T.J. Brown vs.
Silva at featherweight.
