How will the fight play out?

This will be the second encounter between these two fighters, following Alex Pereira’s TKO victory over Jiří Procházka in the second round at UFC 295 in 2023. Predicting the outcome is challenging since both fighters are likely to adjust their strategies for this rematch. However, there are key aspects to consider. First, if you watched their first fight, you saw how Pereira’s leg kicks significantly damaged Jiří’s leg, causing him to lose control, especially in the second round. Pereira will likely employ similar tactics this time, but he’s also likely to have improved his ground game with Glover Teixeira, as Jiří is very dangerous on the floor.
On the other hand, Jiří is a dynamic and skilled fighter. This could benefit him if he manages to control the fight from the center of the octagon. If Jiří can take Pereira down, he has a good chance of securing a submission. Of course, the outcome is always uncertain.
If I had to make a prediction, I would favor Jiří Procházka. I believe he will aim to bring the fight to the ground, where he excels, second only to Oliveira in submissions.

My Pick: Jiří Procházka to win the fight in the second round. The best odds at the time of writing are at +127 with BetOBet.
