Following a massive change-up in the card, UFC 295 looks to deliver at the historic Madison Square Garden on November 11. Two title fights, one for interim gold, highlight a stacked card that is expected to produce some violent encounters. The event will air on ESPN+ PPV in the U.S.
The main event will be Jiri Prochazka vs. Alex Pereira for the vacant UFC light heavyweight title. Prochazka is a former light heavyweight champion who relinquished the belt due to injury. Pereira is a former kickboxing champion who also held the UFC middleweight title. This will be his second fight at light heavyweight.
The co-main event sees Sergei Pavlovich and Tom Aspinall compete for the interim heavyweight belt. Pavlovich is 6-1 in the octagon, with all his wins coming via knockout. Ranked second in the UFC heavyweight rankings, he knocked out Curtis Blaydes in April to secure his shot.
Ranked fourth in the UFC’s rankings, Aspinall returned from a knee injury and beat Marcin Tybura in July. The Brit has impressed against the very best in the division, with all his fights ending via some form of finish. Styles make fights, and Aspinall knows their violent ways will make for a compelling matchup.
“You can’t really watch Sergei Pavlovich and go ‘this is where his weakness is’ because there’s not enough footage of him,” Aspinall told TNT Sports via Eurosport. “He’s similar to me in that regard. He’s had quite a lot of fights now, but the fights have been really short, same as mine. Like, up until this point, he’s looked pretty good everywhere. I think I’m better and I want to show that.”
A UFC heavyweight title defense was scheduled to headline the show, but champion Jon Jones injured himself and will be out of action for eight months.
