After sympathizing with Alex Poatán in the past, Jiri Prochazka demonstrated that he was willing to change his opinions to get closer to a new fight for the light heavyweight title (93kg.). In contradiction to what he had declared after the duel against the Brazilian, the former champion of the category regretted an early interruption in his last defeat and argued that he deserves to fight for the belt after UFC 300.

“I believe that after the last fight, after that early stoppage, I think that if I win next week, I hope and believe that I am capable of winning, I will deserve the title shot,” declared Prochazka in an interview with 'The Schmo'.
