The medical board issued medical restrictions for fighters after UFC 295 regarding their training or return to the cage. What kind of stoppage was given to Jiri Prochazka, who fell in the title fight with Brazilian Pereira at the aforementioned gala?
He didn’t bring the UFC title back to his homeland, but he promised to return soon
Unfortunately, he didn’t bring the title back to his homeland, but he promised to come back and stronger than ever. As he announced, he wanted to get back in the cage as soon as possible, but he will have to wait a while for his return.
A chance that doesn’t just happen. Jiri Prochazka headlined the UFC 295 gala held at the famous Madison Square Garden in New York. But unfortunately, he fell in the title fight for the welterweight championship belt.
The executioner was Brazilian Alex Pereira, who caught him with a hard combination in the second round. A couple of elbow strikes and the fight was over. The MMA world didn’t understand the early stoppage by referee Marc Goddard, but no one can overturn the verdict.
Walk took the defeat with honor. However, he sent a clear message to his fans. “I’ll be back. Stronger than ever, ” he promised on his social media.
But Prochazka will have to wait a while to return to the cage
As soon as he returned to his home country, he started training, but he won’t be looking at the cage for a while. The New York State Athletic Commission (NYSAC) has traditionally issued medical stops for those who fought at the gala.
Jiri Prochazka was also affected by the health restriction. Since he lost to a technical knockout, the stop sign for the Czech samurai is in a higher category.
While the newly crowned champion Pereira, despite taking more punches in the fight, was only given the mandatory seven days. Procházka got forty-five of them. His return back to the cage must then be confirmed by a doctor after further examinations.
For comparison, the same stoppage was given to Russian Pavlovich, who got a TKO from Tom Aspinall. The worst offender was Brazilian beauty Mackenzie Dern, who will not see the cage for 90 days after a crushing knockout from Jessica Andrade.
That restriction is more of a precautionary measure to avoid any health complications. However, for Walk, that time period is not a significant complication. In fact, given the situation in the division, he is not expected to return until the second quarter of next year.
