Dominick Reyes and Jiri Prochazka are both ranked among the top five contenders in the UFC Light Heavyweight division. The pair will jostle for positioning in the rankings and try to put themselves in contention for a title fight this Saturday when they clash in the main event of UFC Vegas 25 on ESPN. BettingPlanet’s in-depth betting preview of the Reyes vs Prochazka fight includes the best odds on offer at BetOnline.


UFC Fight Night: Reyes vs Prochazka fight preview

Jiri Prochazka (27-3-1) has earned 24 of his 27 career wins by way of knockout. The Czech entered the UFC in 2020 with a 10-fight winning streak that included claiming and defending the Rizin Light Heavyweight Championship. He made an immediate splash at UFC 251 in July with a second-round knockout victory over Volkan Oezdemir to earn his 11th straight win overall and his ninth straight knockout win.

Prochazka will now face the toughest test of his professional career in Dominick Reyes (12-2-0). The American was a perfect 12-0 through his first 12 professional fights, including a 6-0 record in the UFC before losing to a championship fight to Jon Jones in a controversial decision loss at UFC 247. Reyes was favored to win the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship at UFC 253 last September but was knocked out by current champion Jan Blachowicz.

The stakes are extremely high for both of these fighters. Reyes has the potential to maintain his spot as one of the division’s top contenders with a win over Prochazka, who could arguably be next in line for a title shot with a convincing win over Reyes given his past dominance with Rizin and how impressive his UFC debut was.


Reyes vs Prochazka UFC betting predictions

This is a really tough fight to call. On the one hand, it feels like the online sportsbooks are disrespecting Dominick Reyes a little bit; he has far more experience than Jiri Prochazka, and it was only 14 months ago that he did what many believe was enough to beat Jon Jones. His athleticism and kickboxing talents could give Prochazka some serious trouble. But on the other hand, everything we’ve seen from Prochazka points to him being an absolute star. His creative striking, long reach and sheer power speak for themselves when you look at the knockout streak he’s on. We think he’s ready to pass this test.
