Jiri Prochazka made history by defeating Glover Teixeira at UFC 275 via submission. It was an amazing fight and could have gone either way but the Czech decided to put an end to the fight at the last minute.
After that amazing win, Prochazka appeared on the MMA Hour show and revealed that he wants to fight Jan Błachowicz as he is the biggest challenge champion in the division. He said :
”I think the most dangerous man here in the light heavyweight division under me, there is Jan Blachowicz. He can be the next challenger. I think for Europe, that will be the biggest event ever, (in) the martial arts. Me and him.“
While this created a lot of hype there was a sudden change of plan by Prochazka which was even more exciting. Later a video that the fighter posted on his Twitter account revealed that he wants to run it back with Teixeira.
“Hello everybody, I wish you a great day. And I made (a decision) for next fight, and I wanna fight Glover the next fight. I will show you why I am the champion, clearly, decisively. And I think Glover deserves it. So, here is the offer,” said Prochazka.

Błachowicz recently took to Twitter in order to share a series of tweets in which the fighter lists down his credentials. The fighter also took this opportunity to shed light on his intentions of fighting Jiri Prochazka.
Błachowicz mentioned that he is an extremely respectful fighter who never backs away from any challenges. The polish also revealed that he is not thinking about retirement anytime soon and wants to continue fighting.
“Facts: As a first male fighter in Poland I became the UFC Champ. Because of my work – my name garners respect. Never shied away from any challenge. I went to the UFC to create great moments for the fans. I’m not done yet,” wrote Błachowicz.
In another tweet, Błachowicz tagged UFC president Dana White and directly asked him to fight Prochazka. The fighter claimed that he would give the fans Europe’s biggest MMA showdown. He wrote :
“@danawhite – no bullshit, no politics, no nonsense.
Give me Prochazka and I’ll give you the biggest MMA fight in Europe’s history. Unlike him I always keep my word.”
It seems like Błachowicz has no interest in sitting around while the champion takes someone else in the meantime. Błachowicz desperately wants to get back what he lost and it will be interesting to see him continue his journey for the next title shot.
