Top Czech MMA fighter Procházka to return in November

The top Czech MMA fighter Jiří Procházka will fight Alex Pereira of Brazil for the UFC world light heavyweight title in New York on November 11, the organisers said on Thursday.

Procházka, who is 30, earned the same title in his last bout in June 2022. However, he injured his shoulder in training for a rematch and surrendered the title under a deal with the UFC.
