State of UFC’s Light Heavyweight Division

Jun , 2022,
oleg

It has been over two years since the long reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Jon Jones stepped away from the sport and relinquished his title.  Since then, the division has been in turmoil.  The title belt has already been passed through three sets of hands – a similar state of affairs to what the division went through in the period between Chuck Liddell losing the title and Jones finding his way to the top. It may be a while before we have another dominant champion at 205 lbs.  If you are a bettor, this could mean some unpredictable results, but if you have a knack for predicting fights, you can try your luck betting on UFC with crypto at Cloudbet. In the meantime, let’s look at the current top fighters in the division, and their prospects in the near future.

[#1] (C)  Jiri Prochazka 

The current UFC champion hails from Czech Republic and holds a record of 29-3-1, with only one of his fights going to a decision. Prochazka has a wild, aggressive fighting style.  This generally leads to exciting fights and earned Jiri a title shot in his third fight with the promotion, after scoring knockouts over Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes. Prochazka was in some trouble in a war with the previous champ Glover Teixeira, but against all odds managed to submit Glover with a rear naked choke in the last minute of the fight. Jiri’s offense-heavy style may ultimately cost him the title but he is sure to deliver enterntaiment while on top. Prochazka expressed interest in facing Jan or rematching Teixeira for his first defense.
