Jiri Prochazka solidified himself as a true threat to the UFC light heavyweight title with a brutal knockout of Dominick Reyes at UFC Vegas 25.

Prochazka was relentless as he walked down Reyes and traded punches until finding a spinning elbow that sent the two-time title challenger to the canvas, face first, at the 4:29 mark of the second round.

In the co-main event, Giga Chikadze also delivered another star-making moment with a first-round stoppage of Cub Swanson, landing a body kick that shut down Swanson’s body in the first round.
