UFC 303 live updates: Results, highlights, odds, how to watch Alex Pereira vs. Jiří Procházka 2

Saturday’s previously scheduled main event may have been derailed by the littlest piggy, but that doesn’t mean UFC 303 doesn’t still have plenty to offer for fight fans.

After Conor McGregor’s broken pinky toe caused the cancellation of the former double champion’s fight against Michael Chandler, the UFC went into event-saving mode. And while the new headliner for Saturday’s card may not be of the caliber as the biggest star in the sport making his return after nearly three years out of the Octagon, there will at least be a championship belt on the line.

UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira (10-2, 8 KOs) agreed to run it back with former champion Jiří Procházka (30-4, 26 KOs) on Saturday (10 p.m. ET, ESPN+ PPV) at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. And just like that, the show will go on. The two met in the cage previously at UFC 295 in November with Pereira claiming the vacant light heavyweight title with a second-round TKO.

The co-main event features fan favorite Brian Ortega against rising prospect Diego Lopes in a lightweight fight. The bout was originally supposed to go down at featherweight, but was changed last minute to a 155-pounds after Ortega couldn’t make the cut down to 145.
