Where We Stand: Light Heavyweight Division | November 2023

Outlook: Procházka looked a little rusty coming back for his first fight in nearly 18 months, but he seemed to find his rhythm in the second round of his title fight against Pereira. That is, however, until he ran into a couple hooks and an onslaught of clinch strikes, ending the fight in the second round. Procházka was clearly disappointed, but in just four UFC fights, he has registered with the fanbase as must-see television. Because of his abbreviated run to the title, Procházka has the advantage of options. He could fight the winner of the Błachowicz-Rakić tilt, as well as the winner of the rematch between Magomed Ankalaev and Johnny Walker. He has it all out in front of him, and the more active he is about getting his belt back, the better it is for the MMA viewing public.
