The title fight between Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira was one of the best fights of 2022.
Jiri Prochazka won the fight by a 5th round submission. However, he was not happy with his performance.
And to redeem himself and get a dominant win over Glover Teixeira, Jiri Prochazka had decided to fight Glover in a rematch next.
"I made decide for next fight ... and I want to fight Glover the next fight. Not because it will be another big fight. But just one reason: my performance was bad the first fight. And I will show you why I'm the champion. Clearly, decisively. And I think Glover deserves it. So here's the offer. I will show you why I'm the champion."- Jiri Prochazka stated on his Instagram
Though fans are excited to watch the rematch former champion, Jan Blachowicz is upset with Jiri's decision.
"'Jan is for me the biggest challenge' - your words. Respect you Champ, but the samurai code was not upheld."- Jan Blachowicz tweeted after Prochazka's announcement
It won't be a surprise if Blachowicz fights the winner of Jiri vs Glover 2.
But, with Anthony Smith vs Magomed Ankalaev taking place in the near future, Jan Blachowicz might lose his number 1 title contender spot.
