Now Jiri is taking his talents to the UFC. First fight may be against… Volkan Oezdemir.
“They offered me Jiri Prochazka, and I verbally accepted the fight,” Oezdemir told MMA Junkie. “Just for the moment right now, I didn’t get any proposal (or) fight offer. I was still doing my renewal of the contract and it took some time, and now finally it’s done and probably the fight contract will come after that.”https://mmajunkie.usatoday.com/2020/04/ufc-volkan-oezdemir-reveals-jiri-prochazka-fight-targeted-dublin
Jiri Prochazka since he’s easily one of the best Light Heavyweights not to fight in the UFC he can fight Volkan Oezdemir. Definitely a fight to see where Jiri is at talent wise compared to the TOP 15 Light Heavyweights.
At 27 years old defeating the #6 UFC Light Heavyweight in his UFC debut can set Jiri up for title shot in 2020 or 2021.
UFC is desperate for Light Heavyweights, I understand they have Johnny Walker, Aleksandr Rakic, Jim Crute but Jiri Prochazka can be the new face in UFC Light Heavyweight Division.
