Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira have the rare challenge of competing with their own Fight of the Year candidate in 2022. Prochazka vs. Teixeira 2 takes place at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, Dec. 10. It serves as a sequel to their thrilling, back-and-forth fight at UFC 275 in June.

Prochazka and Teixeira delivered arguably the greatest UFC light heavyweight championship fight of all time in June. In a story-rich battle, Prochazka ascended from UFC debutant to champion in just three fights against Teixeira, the oldest first-time champ in UFC history. They fought tooth and nail for nearly five full rounds — Teixeira landed 159 total strikes against Prochazka’s 157. In a shocking deviation from expectations, striking specialist Prochazka submitted dominant grappler Teixeira with 28 seconds left in a fight Teixeira was winning. They will have the honor of closing out UFC’s pay-per-view calendar for 2022.

UFC 282’s co-headliners will have a close eye on how the main event plays out. Jan Blachowicz (No. 2) and Magomed Ankalaev (No. 3) are fighting to likely determine the next challenger for the light heavyweight title; although, a Teixeira win on Saturday could lead to an immediate trilogy fight. It is also possible that Blachowicz or Ankalaev could be swapped into the main event should either headliner suffer a pre-fight injury or miss weight.
