Jiri Prochazka delivered a spectacular knockout against former light heavyweight title challenger Dominick Reyes at UFC Vegas 25. The Czech MMA fighter has put the 205-lbs division on notice with his second-round knockout victory over Reyes.

The MMA Twitterverse was shocked to witness the devastating spinning elbow knockout by Prochazka tonight. The former Rizin LHW champion has received admiration from several UFC stars, including former UFC double champion Daniel Cormier.

DC hailed Prochazka for his strong chin, which was put to the test against Dominick Reyes tonight.

UFC welterweight champion Kamaru Usman also tuned in to watch the light heavyweight clash go down at UFC Vegas 25. 'The Nigerian Nightmare' couldn't contain his excitement upon witnessing the astonishing KO:

Houston native Derrik Lewis is in awe of Jiri Prochazka's lightning surge to the top of the 205-lbs bracket. The UFC heavyweight believes Prochazka's future opponents will be in for a tough time.

Dustin Poirier, who is slated to face Conor McGregor at UFC 264, expressed his concern for Dominick Reyes. 'The Devastator' appeared to have sustained injuries to his nose before receiving the brutal spinning elbow shot.

Coming into UFC Vegas 25, Jiri Prochazka got himself a new hairdo that caught a lot of eyeballs. UFC middleweight Kevin Holland, who is on a two-fight losing skid, is ready to don a similar hairstyle for an assured victory.
