Jiří Procházka wants to return to the cage as soon as possible after his defeat. Understandably so, he has already negotiated with the UFC and told them his demands. He basically doesn’t care who his next opponent will be, as long as he doesn’t have to wait long and it makes sense.
The defeat to Alex Pereira changed his plans. Jiri Prochazka has tasted the taste of defeat after many years and is no longer the UFC champion. His goal now must be clear and that is to win back his title shot.
That’s why he’s clear that he wants to return to the cage as soon as possible. That means in the opening months of next year. He even talked to the organization about this topic shortly after the game.
Prochazka about the negotiations with the UFC
“As far as me, my position and moving forward, we had a phone call with the UFC management that night and we talked about the fact that they are ready to put me in a fight anytime as soon as possible to get me back in the process.
This is an important step for myself right now, and one that I would like to implement as soon as possible. I want to get this body healed properly by the end of the year and the first quarter of the year or even earlier back in the cage for a win,” said Prochazka in an interview with iDNES.
He’s not clear on his opponent, but it shouldn’t be anyone from the elite five. They all have their fights arranged and Procházka would have to wait a few months to fight the winner for the title.
So he’ll probably go the other way. At welterweight, he would have to go with someone not in the elite five, but a win would give him much less than a loss would take away. The better option, then, is a weight change.
Procházka mentioned that he’s thinking about moving up or down in weight, but he certainly wouldn’t look as hard for an opponent as he would at his own weight. So let’s be surprised who he will end up facing.
