For Prochazka, the matchup represents a chance to redo a performance he said was the worst of his career despite a fifth-round submission that capped one of the wildest title fights in UFC history. Teixeira, meanwhile, hopes to finish the job after nearly finishing Prochazka on several occasions only to be submitted in the final minute of the 25-minute fight.
