UFC 295 WEIGH-IN, COUNTDOWN EPISODE, PRESSER, MEDIA DAY, BETTING ODDS & HOW TO WATCH
New York, NY (November 11th, 2023)– The restructured main event of UFC 295 is official. Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka both successfully made weight on Friday morning at Madison Square Garden in New York, and they will battle for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight title in Saturday night’s featured bout.
Originally, Pereira-Prochazka was set to be the co-main event while Jon Jones vs. Stipe Miocic was the original main event on the card.
Jones suffered a torn pectoral muscle and was forced out of the event, elevating Pereira-Prochazka to the top spot.
The new co-main event features Sergey Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall, who are one fight away from putting themselves in a position to challenge for the undisputed UFC world title some time in 2024. Jon Jones vs. Stipe Miocic is still being worked on and the winner will be the mandatory for the winner of this fight.
