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!

Also on the main card will be two fights guaranteed to deliver the action at Flyweight and Light Heavyweight. Directly before Lewis versus Pavlovich, one-time title challenger, Alex Perez, faces the surging Alexandre Pantoja. The winner will find themselves all that much closer to a potential crack at the gold.

Opening the main card is a fight that could also decide a No. 1 contender, Magomed Ankalaev versus Anthony Smith. A win for either man would extend their win streaks to great numbers, Ankalaev on the cusp of nine in a row, and Smith seeking his fourth and a second career UFC title opportunity.
