After the magnificent, back-and-forth title fight between Glover Teixeira and Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275, there was someone in the audience who wanted to get a title shot versus the newly crowned champion.

That someone was the former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Jan Blachowitz, who got an up-and-close encounter with Prochazka.

At the post-fight press conference, when asked about the encounter, Jiri Prochazka told reporters: 

“He was so brave. He told me something about our fight, so I share the energy with him. We will see. I will be ready. Just give me a little time to repair my face and to realize the mistakes from this fight.”

Prochazka also said that he blew a kiss to Blachowitz and told him that he will be his next opponent.

Yesterday, Prochazka had a hero’s welcome in his town of Brno, as he became the first UFC champion coming from the Czech Republic.
