The KO has seen MMA fans pay a lot of attention to the Czech Republic native. They are eager to know more about the new light heavyweight contender.

Prochazka joined RT Sport MMA, where he revealed something that was unheard of before. ‘Denisa’ said, “I am living in a forest and next to the lake in Bruno. And I like to live more alone, but I want to share my ideology and my ideas and my style of fighting.”

Jiri Prochazka continued, “So I need to be a little bit famous… Now for my career that’s important to be like that, to be alone and just practice and practice because I can stay pure clean and without no distraction, no relationship.”

Jiri Prochazka has his focus on the UFC gold

The UFC light heavyweight is living a lonely life in the middle of the forest. It came in as a surprise for many people, but ‘Denisa’ has his reasons to live alone. This focus has helped him rise to #3 in the UFC rankings after just two fights in the promotion.

Prochazka wants to capture the UFC gold. The current champion, Jan Blachowicz, is scheduled to fight Glover Teixeira for the light heavyweight title at UFC 266. Therefore, Jiri Prochazka can only fight for the title after the event gets over.

Jan Blachowicz has promised ‘Denisa’ a crack at his tile after he is done with Teixeira. ‘The Polish Power’ tweeted “Me vs you in Cieszyn Prince vs Samurai Sword vs Katana #LegendaryPolishPower.”
