The Czech Republic's first UFC champion, Prochazka (29-3-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) intends to make his reign on top of the light heavyweight division a long and historic one. An exciting finisher who has more UFC post-fight bonuses than he does fights, Prochazka quickly rose through the rankings with statement wins over Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes. He now looks to leave no doubt in his rematch with Teixeira by delivering another vintage performance.

Teixeira (33-8 MMA, 16-6 UFC) aims to recapture his lost title and add a new chapter to his storied UFC career. An MMA legend who has been competing for over 20 years, he has earned notable wins over former champions Quinton Jackson and Rashad Evans. Teixeira now plans to leave it all in the octagon and end the year with his hand raised.

Former champion Blachowicz (29-9 MMA, 12-6 UFC) plans to defend his spot in the rankings and stake his claim as the next contender for the belt. A Brazilian jiu-jitsu black belt with knockout power, he has shown off his well-rounded skills in victories over Dominick Reyes, Corey Anderson and Luke Rockhold. He now seeks to snap Ankalaev's win streak by becoming the first person to knock him out.

Ankalaev (18-1 MMA, 9-1 UFC) has cemented himself as one of the most feared athletes in the light heavyweight division. A Master of Sport in combat sambo, Ankalaev is currently on the second-longest win streak in the division's history, which stands at nine victories and includes defeats of Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos and Oezdemir. He now looks to make it 10 in a row and secure his first shot at UFC gold.
