With Alex Pereira about to step in on short notice and attempt to, once again, save a fight card in need when he rematches Jiri Prochazka this Saturday at UFC 303, I figured it would be an apropos time to look back at the promotion’s history when it comes to successful show-saving performances. Not only does that mean this article will be UFC-focused, but it also infers that the list will largely consist of winning fighters in main events who stepped up on short notice – saving shows that were in dire need in the process. There are also many valid arguments for losing fighters earning their way onto this list given the wide-reaching context of the topic, so I did my best to shout some of those,as well
