UFC 295 is set to host two title fights, featuring Jiri Prochazka vs. Alex Pereira for the vacant light-heavyweight belt and Tom Aspinall vs. Sergei Pavlovich for interim gold at heavyweight. Prochazka previously held the light-heavyweight title before an injury forced him to relinquish it in 2022, and his successor, Jamahal Hill, suffered the same fate earlier this year. This leaves the belt vacant, and Prochazka aims to reclaim it from Pereira, who was the middleweight champion until recently.
In the co-main event, Aspinall goes up against Pavlovich in a battle between quick finishers. Originally, UFC 295 was supposed to feature a heavyweight title defense between Jon Jones and Stipe Miocic, but an injury to Jones led to Aspinall vs. Pavlovich taking the spotlight.
The event’s main card and prelims are available for live updates and results below.
During the co-main event, we witnessed a winning fight between Steve Erceg and Alessandro Costa, where Costa secured a takedown after getting Erceg against the fence. Nevertheless, Erceg managed to turn the tables and finish the round strong.
UFC 295 is taking place at Madison Square Garden in New York City. The fight card is creating a buzz due to the on-going bouts and the competitive nature of the title fights. It’s an event that will surely keep fans on the edge of their seats.
