The back-and-forth battle earned Fight of the Night honors and was one of the best championship fights in the promotion’s history. Late in the final round, previously No. 2 ranked Prochazka applied a rear-naked choke that forced Teixeira to tap out. Up to that point, Teixeira was winning the round.
Not only was Teixeira winning round 5, he was up on two of the judges scorecards heading into the frame.
