Georges St Pierre is very excited about the upcoming light heavyweight title fight between Glover Teixeira vs Jiri Prochazka in the main event of UFC 275.
UFC 275 takes place at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore. The pay-per-view card will be headlined by a light heavyweight title fight between two amazing fighters. Glover Teixeira, who is 42 years old will be making his first title defense against the exciting Jiri Prochazka who is fighting for the title in his very third UFC fight.
UFC Hall-of-Famer, Georges St Pierre took to Instagram to break down this upcoming fight and previewed it. GSP breaks down the strengths of the two fighters who will be looking to finish the fight before five rounds. GSP believes both the fighters have equal opportunity to win this fight but is confident that Jiri could win the fight if opens strong in the first round as he has in his previous fights.
“He can do it all,” Georges St Pierre praises Glover Teixeira’s talents
“Very interesting fight,” said GSP in his Instagram video. “Teixeira I believe, in order to win, will need to use his experience, especially at the beginning of the fight when Prochazka is at his most dangerous. We know he always starts the fight very aggressively.”
“He is a clever fighter and can do it all very very well. I believe he will need to weather the storm in the beginning. Perhaps use his wrestling to get Prochazka outside of his comfort zone and try to get him later on in the fight,” Georges St Pierre spoke about Prochazka tackling Teixeira. The fighter is only two fights in the UFC going up against a veteran who has been fighting elite opponents for a decade in the UFC.
“Start the fight hard and strong right off the bat, don’t let Teixeira use his experience against you,” was GSP’s advice to Prochazka who takes on an experienced Teixeira.
