  • Jiri Prochazka would rather not fight again if he doesn’t see any progress following his KO loss to Alex Pereira at UFC 300
  • “BJP” is still likely to be booked against a formidable opponent

Jiri Prochazka has reflected on his UFC 303 loss to Alex Pereira.

Improve or retire

Shortly after getting finished by “Poatan” in their title fight rematch at UFC 303, “BJP” issued a statement on his official Instagram account. According to Prochazka, Pereira was the better fighter that night and the defeat left him pondering about just one thing – improve or retire.

“Thanks to you Alex for the fight. You was better. And only one thing goes on my mind, that I need to evolve to the next level, or don’t fight again. So simple, to be the strongest, this is the way. Thank you. See you in the gym,” Prochazka said.

It’s not the end for Jiri

Having heard Prochazka’s reflection, it appears that he would be working on his game and thoroughly thing about his next move. As it stands, “BJP” is still one of the top light heavyweights in the UFC but losing two title fights in a row is undeniably a huge dent to his MMA career.

Nevertheless, UFC president Dana White was still pleased by how Prochazka agreed to step in and face Pereira to replace Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler on short notice. That said, “BJP” could still be rewarded with a good matchup in his next fight.

On the other hand, Pereira is planning to take a break and fight again before the year ends. Jamahal Hill has called him out once again to which the reigning light heavyweight champion quickly agreed to.
