Jiří Prochazka is still visible after his defeat in the UFC and it will take a few more weeks before he takes a break from media duties. He has now spoken about referee Marc Goddard, who he had a chance to talk to. How did he think he saw the end of the match?
We also saw Jiri Prochazka’s title fight with Alex Pereira at UFC 295. The Czech fighter was a slight favorite, but the first round showed an evenly matched battle. It is a question who won it, the experts were also not quite sure.
However, Procházko was more successful in the second one and managed to hit him well several times. But when he tried to drive the Brazilian to the canvas, he took two punches to the face and went down after the second one. He was still trying to save the situation, but cashed in more punches and when Pereira got on top of him, the referee stopped the fight.
The controversial termination is still being addressed two weeks after the fight, but now Procházka has spoken about what Marc Goddard himself, who was the head referee of the aforementioned fight, actually told him the next day.
Prochazka about Goddard
“Every referee is different. It was decided the way it was decided. I then told Goddard the next day that he should leave it to the very end next time. Whether from my side or the other side. I believe that next time it will be my side only, as far as terminating the opponents.
I’m going until I really see there’s resistance. Marc Goddard said to me that there was a blind moment..
I don’t think I want to go back to that. It was quick and maybe he could have let it go. Maybe he didn’t. Maybe, maybe. What if, what if. I don’t want to talk about that,” Procházka explained to iDNES.
Obviously, Procházka is tired of rehashing the moment, but fans are still interested. The announcement of the next fight will put an end to all this, but that should not happen until early next year at the earliest.
