Light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka will make his first title defence in a rematch with Glover Teixeira at UFC 282 – the promotion’s final pay-per-view event of the year – on December 10. The title bout was first reported by The Underground.

Prochazka and Teixeira fought in a Fight of the Year contender at UFC 275 in June, where Prochazka was able to pull off a fifth-round submission win with just 30 seconds left of the fight.

In December, the 42-year-old Brazilian Teixeira has the chance of becoming a two-time world champion since he claimed the light heavyweight title from Jan Blachowicz in October last year.
