Jones, billed as an “undefeated heavyweight champion,” makes the first defense of the heavyweight title that he captured after Francis Ngannou vacated the belt. Standing in his way is Stipe MIocic, who holds the record for most title defenses in the big-man division.
In the co-headliner, former light-heavy champ Jiri Prochazka returns for his first fight since a shoulder injury forced him to relinquish the belt. Making his second appearance at 205 pounds is Alex Pereira, the former middleweight champ, who moved up a division after losing the belt in a rematch against rival Israel Adesanya and now vies for champ-champ status in just his 11th professional MMA fight.
