TWO TITLES UP FOR GRABS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 11, 2023, with a re-worked pay-per-view (PPV) main card. In the ESPN+-streamed main event, former 205-pound roost-ruler, Jiri Prochazka, will lock horns with ex-Middleweight kingpin, Alex Pereira, for the promotion’s vacant Light Heavyweight title. In UFC 295’s co-main event, top-ranked Heavyweight contenders, Sergei Pavlovich (No. 2) and Tom Aspinall (No. 4), will collide for the interim strap after division champion, Jon Jones, was injured with a torn pectoral muscle and forced to withdraw (video).

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Narrated by Hollywood Star Ron Perlman of “Sons of Anarchy” and “Hellboy” fame, the promo is fire and will get fight fans pumped for the highly-anticipated rematch between Welterweight champion, Kamaru Usman, and Colby Covington.

Also featured is a women’s Strawweight championship rematch between current division queenpin, Rose Namajunas, and ex-title holder, Zhang Weili. Plus, “The People’s Main Event” between hard-hitting fan-favorite, Justin Gaethje, and former Bellator Lightweight champion, Michael Chandler, gets some love, too.
