Jakub Tichota has had the toughest game of his professional career. The two-time Oktagon champion did not give the Czech talent a chance, but the match was affected by a nasty injury to the 23-year-old Czech.
OKTAGON 42 offered some interesting fights and stories. While the Czech talent was booed during the main event, Jakub Tichota became a hero shortly after the tournament when it was revealed under what circumstances he finished the entire match.
The 23-year-old fighter was thoroughly tested by Losene Keita. While Keita earned his second straight belt in the Octagon, defending his undefeated record, and has an 11-0 record, Tichota notched his second straight loss and is 5-2.
And what has he done to earn the respect of the fans, his opponent and promoter Ondrej Novotny? He sat out most of the fight with a nasty fracture. He broke his collarbone in the first round.
The fight went into the fourth round. Tichota often willingly went down hoping that Keita would take a risk and follow him. But he didn’t, and the champion always waited for the referee to put him back on his feet.
After the fight, Tichota took to social media to show off the X-rays of his fracture and then also commented on how the fight went.
“I’m very grateful for the fight and the opportunity, even though it didn’t go the way I wanted. Unfortunately, I broke my collarbone in the first round and it affected the flow of the fight quite a bit,” Tichota admitted on social media.
“Now it’s time to get back together. We willsee in the next few days if he will have to treat the injury with surgery and come back after healing,” Chimp added.
