Attentive to all the possibilities of commitment in the UFC 303, Alex Poatán suggested an immediate rematch against Jiri Prochazka in case of defeat this Saturday (29). In conversation with the press at 'half day', the light heavyweight champion (up to 93kg.) pointed out his plans for the future, if there is an adverse result against the challenger.

“If I lose, I think it’s inevitable (the trilogy against Prochazka). It will be 1-1, and I accepted the fight at the last minute. It's interesting what the UFC does. Who will be next, besides me?”, said Poatan.

This weekend, Alex steps into the octagon for his second commitment in the 2024 season. The Brazilian is looking for the second defense of his belt in the division he has led since the end of last year.

On the other side, Poatan will have an old acquaintance. Prochazka was surpassed by the Brazilian star precisely in the dispute for the vacant title, in 2023.


The Czech has also already measured forces with Glover Teixeira, mentor, coach and friend of the São Paulo native. Against the Minas Gerais native, the Czech had the upper hand, winning a true battle in the last round.

If he wins, Alex will expand his legacy in MMA. A UFC representative since the end of 2021, the fighter has 'stealed the show' in the organization with impressive performances, in addition to his meteoric rise in the biggest organization in the sport in the world.
