Prochazka secured the light heavyweight title by defeating then-champion Glover Teixeira with a dramatic last-minute rear-naked choke at UFC 275 in June 2022. However, he encountered a setback when a serious shoulder injury forced his withdrawal from the rematch against the Brazilian at UFC 282. This led to his decision to relinquish the title to ensure the division's forward momentum.

The 31-year-old Czech Republican made his comeback at UFC 295 last November. However, his return was marked by a second-round TKO defeat against Alex Pereira in a bout for the vacant 205-pound championship.


Is Jiri Prochazka a modern-day Samurai?

Jiri Prochazka's fighting technique is unmistakably unique. Renowned for his distinctive antics, the former light heavyweight champion has been affectionately dubbed 'The Czech Samurai', a title he earned during his formative years in Japan under the RIZIN promotion.

Prochazka, committed to the martial ethos of the Bushido code, infuses occasional non-traditional approaches into his training regimen.

Although Prochazka may not be an actual Samurai, he often incorporates training with a Samurai sword, known as the 'Katana', into his routine. This ritual started nearly a decade ago when his coach presented him with a copy of 'The Book of Five Rings,' authored by the renowned Japanese swordsman Miyamoto Musashi. The profound teachings of this book deeply impacted Prochazka.
