The Madison Square Garden pay-per-view is topped by Jon Jones’ first heavyweight title defence against legend Stipe Miocic.
Prochazka won the light-heavyweight crown in 2022 by beating Glover Teixeira but injury forced him to vacate the belt.
Jamahal Hill would go onto win the strap in Prochazka’s absence but he was also forced to relinquish it after an injury of his own.
So now Prochazka will get the chance to win back the title he never lost in the octagon against ex-middleweight king Pereira.
White also announced that Leon Edwards will defend his welterweight gold against rival Colby Covington at UFC 296.
Edwards won and defended the strap against Kamaru Usman while No1 contender Covington waited in line.
It will top the December 16 bill with flyweight champ Alexandre Pantoja also rematching Brandon Royval.
The double announcement had fans in dreamland online as one said: “Best year to be a UFC fan.”
Another added: “Dana always delivers the goods! How good is it being an MMA fan.”
One gushed: “The MMA Gods have blessed us with bangers.”
Another said: “What a way to end the year!!!”
