UFC 303 ‘Fight Motion’: Super-slow motion video of Alex Pereira’s vicious KO

The UFC had to pivot on its International Fight Week plans when Conor McGregor pulled out, but the new main event delivered.

Light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira knocked out former champ Jiri Prochazka (30-5-1 MMA, 4-2 UFC) in the headliner and staked his place, in many minds, as the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world. And in an insane circumstance, Diego Lopes went from fighting at featherweight on weigh-ins day to a 165-pound catchweight against a new opponent just a few hours before his fight, then beat Dan Ige.

Plus, there was a 19-second finish, an elbow that nearly exposed someone’s skull and more finishes and bloody wars at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Check out all the highlights in super-slow motion in the UFC 303 “Fight Motion” video highlights above.
