Jiri talked about his interaction with Jan during the post-fight interview, and he revealed what went down between them, he said, “It was a little bit friendly, and a little bit aggressive after I said, ‘Yes, OK, let’s go, you’re next.’ He started to be aggressive because he saw the cameras. He tried to flex a little bit.”
“I said to him, ‘I love you,’ because he was so aggressive,” Jiri stated. “First, he was smiling to me, and it was good. And after the fight, he was aggressive, ‘I want to fight, I want to fight,’ so I said, ‘I love you, Jan. Let’s talk in the cage.’”
“He was so brave. He told me something about our fight, so I shared the energy with him. We will see. I will be ready, but just give me a little time to repair my face, to realize the mistakes from this fight,” Jiri concluded.
