Jiri Prochazka will be challenging the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira this June 11.

At UFC 275, the inaugural and former Rizin FF Light Heavyweight Champion Prochazka will look to finish Teixeira, who has racked up six wins in a row going into the bout. Teixeira will defend his belt for the first time against the second-ranked contender at light heavyweight after dethroning Jan Blachowicz last October.

Jiri Prochazka wants to finish Glover Teixeira

Speaking to the media during the build-up for UFC 275, Jiri Prochazka revealed his intentions to finish Teixeira.

“To include wrestling in my stand-up style, that was the hardest thing what I had to accept. After some time, I find some keys how to do that and now, I think I can wrestle with him easily. I can wrestle with him, I can react for his face for wrestling. In jiu-jitsu or the ground game, I’m not like other fighters who want to play jiu-jitsu or train jiu-jitsu.

“For me, the ground game is simple, ground and pound, and find the finish. Nothing else.”

 

Prochazka’s samurai training

Jiri Prochazka burst onto the MMA scene as one of the most unconventional fighters in recent times. The Czech native is known for his unique style of fighting where he’s willing to absorb shots methodically in order to trade some of his own.

‘The Czech Samurai’ has talked about his unique style of preparations and training philosophies. While some are quick to dismiss his approach as “fake samurai sh*t”, it’s hard to argue against his record of 28 wins, 25 of which came through knockout.

“Traditional home BJP training! Everything what I need is here. Kettlebell, punching bag, makiwara, rope, rail, all the classics. I’m repeating every week continuously, once in a week, minimum.

“Let the deep core stay there, the stabilization system, this training has it all. The core, the movement, a flow, connection to everything of course through my antenna, and endurance, endurance power, maximum power, dynamics, all condition factors.”

Prochazka will make history by becoming the first Czech champion in the UFC if he is able to defeat Teixeira. Jan Blachowicz will be on the sidelines to observe his potential next opponent at UFC 275.
