Pereira will now face former champion Jiri Prochazka in a rematch on June 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. This change was announced just 16 days before the event.

Pereira recently fought at UFC 300 in April, where he knocked out Jamahal Hill in the first round, despite having a broken toe. He’s now ready to face Prochazka again, who he defeated last November to win the light heavyweight title.

The new main event promises to be an exciting rematch between Pereira and Prochazka, adding even more anticipation to UFC 303.
