Dominick Reyes (12-2) came out of the gate hot, going 12-0 between 2014 and 2019. Back-to-back losses to Jon Jones and Jan Błachowicz in 2020 have cooled him off. Now he’ll look to rebound versus Jiri Prochazka (27-3-1). Prochazka hasn’t lost a fight since 2015 and is looking to move up from #5 in the UFC light heavyweight rankings. Whatever technical advantages Reyes holds are rendered moot by Prochazka’s durability and cardio, and Reyes has the added misfortune of coming off a confidence-shaking TKO loss. Prochazka will overwhelm him late.
Currently the line is: Dominick Reyes (+100) vs. Jiri Prochazka (-130)
Prediction: Prochazka TKO round 3
