Jiří Procházka has not yet healed his serious shoulder injury and is in the final stages of his rehabilitation process. However, UFC champion Jamahal Hill is already pushing the Moravian samurai for an August fight where he wants to beat the crap out of him. But the Czech fighter remains icy calm.
Jamahal Hill is pressing UFC brass and Prochazka for an August fight
Jiri Prochazka is currently going through the final stages of his rehabilitation process after his serious shoulder injury that cost him the UFC welterweight championship. The title was won by sixth-ranked Jamahal Hill, who earned the most from the Czech fighter’s injury.
Almost immediately after winning the title, all the media talked about Prochazka getting the first defence, which was confirmed by the head of the organisation Dana White, among others. He called Procházka’s shoulder injury the worst he has seen in the UFC.
Hill said some time ago that he will give Prochazka the first opportunity, but he will wait until the summer at most and then possibly give another title challenger a chance. Therefore, the American fighter is already starting to get nervous as the deadline approaches.
Jiri Prochazka reacts to his trash talk with icy calm
In an interview with MMA Junkie, Hill resorted to another trash talk, stating that Prochazka falls short of his fighting qualities and will beat the crap out of him in the fight. ” As far as Hill and his reactions, he’ll find out,” he said with icy calm on the Fair Play Thinker podcast.
“I don’t want to put anyone down, but with all due respect, I’m going for the belt,” he said, not wanting to be drawn into any more verbal skirmishes. “I’m gonna go get my belt, and that’s it. I have no need to humiliate or exalt anyone. He is what he is. I am what I am.”
Hill confirmed in that interview that August is indeed the deadline, putting pressure on UFC management and Jiri himself. “Let him push. The guy should be grateful for the chance to go in there and fight for the belt in the first place,” Prochazka reminded the crowd that if it weren’t for his injury, he probably wouldn’t have made the title fight.
Although there was originally talk of an August date, Procházka brushed it off for now. Logically, he wants to return to a fight like this 100 percent prepared both physically and mentally. According to his own words, Trashtalk does not admit his opponent at all.
