Tonight’s UFC Vegas 25 event was headlined by a light heavyweight bout featuring former division title challenger Dominick Reyes taking on Jiri Prochazka.

Reyes (12-3 MMA) was looking to snap a two-fight losing skid when he squared off with Prochazka this evening. ‘The Devestator’ had suffered back-to-back title fight losses to Jan Blachowicz and Jon Jones in his most recent efforts. Prior to those setbacks, Dominick Reyes had gone a perfect 12-0 in his MMA career, which included a nasty knockout win over Chris Weidman.

Meanwhile, Jiri Prochazka (28-3-1 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC Vegas 25 main event riding an eleven-fight winning streak. The former RIZIN champion had made his Octagon debut back at UFC 251, where he earned a second round knockout victory over former title challenger Volkan Oezdemir.
