A Less than a month for completion UFC 282, the billboard at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas undergoes changes after Jiri Prochazka suffered a shoulder injury that keeps him out of the rematch against Glover Teixeira.

“UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka suffered a shoulder injury which will require a significant rehabilitation period. Out of respect for the athletes and the division, Prochazka has chosen to vacate his title and compete for the belt as soon as medically cleared,” the company said through a statement.

Given this, the new stellar fight of the evening in Las Vegas will be between Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev for the UFC light heavyweight title next Saturday, December 10.
