"Good luck Jiri! This guy is ready, watch what he is entering the arena in! We are rooting for you at HQ! Bring home the bacon and the sizzle @jiri_bjp" McGregor tweeted.

"Paradigm Sports Jiri “Bomby jak pica” (big f**king bombs) Prochazka competing for the coveted UFC LHW title tonight! The unique styled Czech aiming to become the first champion of his country against the veteran Brazilian Champion. He wins we calling him “big f**king cheques” #gp  He further added.

And that's what happened as Jiri Prochazka picked up a submission victory in the fifth round to emerge as the new UFC light-heavyweight champion of the world.

In what a slugfest in the UFC 275 main-event, Jiri got the better of Glover in the fifth round with a rear naked choke win to become the new UFC light-heavyweight champion.
