Alex Pereira (10-2-0) is the most talented MMA striker in the world by a significant margin. The former kickboxing champion has rewritten the rules by capturing both the middleweight and light heavyweight crowns after just seven UFC fights. The Brazilian throws all his shots with devastating power and can turn out the lights on any opponent, as evidenced by elite talents like Israel Adesanya, Jamahal Hill and Sean Strickland.

Pereira had too many weapons when these athletes first met, ending the fight with a TKO in the second round. He has far more technical skills and will be looking to replicate his early success with another injury-time win.

Jiri Prochazka (30-4-1) bounced back from his 2023 loss to Pereira with an impressive knockout win over Alex Rakic ​​and should be wiser heading into the rematch. The 31-year-old takes a very different fighting approach to his opponent and fights in a free-form, flow-state style. This makes him unpredictable and difficult to read, but a lack of rigid defense can make him vulnerable.

Prochazka combines an array of martial arts skills and a unique mentality, making him one of the more interesting characters in MMA. The Czech’s last thirteen fights have all ended in the distance, with notable victories over Glover Teixeira, Dominick Reyes and Volkan Oezdemir, and his only defeat during this streak came against Pereira.


Betting Strategy Alex Pereira vs Jiri Prochazka

Online bookmakers have posted surprisingly narrow betting lines for this match. Prochazka has the potential to come away with the belt, but Pereira has been so dominant in recent fights that he should probably get a shorter price tag. The contrasting styles of the tight and defensive champion against the loose and carefree challenger should make for a compelling spectacle regardless of the outcome.

This fight will likely end before the final bell, so bettors may want to back their pick via knockout at a nice quote. It’s hard to look past Pereira’s brilliance, so he offers the widest appeal at the prices on offer.
