UFC Vegas 25 – REYES VS PROCHAZKA
Sat, May 1 / 9:00 PM CDT / Main Card in Las Vegas, Nevada
REYES VS PROCHAZKA
Reyes has lost two in a row after starting 12-0. He lost a debatable unanimous decision to Jon Jones at UFC 247 and several months later he fought for the vacated title and faced off against Jan Blachowicz and the fight was stopped in the second round. Now he needs to stop the losing streak as he goes to battle against Prochazka.
Each of these fighters in UFC 25 are on a course for the title and will headline the clash on May 1st in Vegas.
Prochazka is considered a top light heavyweight and did so when he defeated Volkan Oezdemir in a second round stoppage last July. He uses an unorthodox striking approach and has tons of power. He currently has won nine straight fight and all of his 27 wins except one is by stoppage.
This fight is critical in the career of each of these fighters.
