Jiri Prochazka believes early end to Alex Pereira fight will give him a title chance if he wins at UFC 300

Jiri Prochazka is eyeing a shot at the belt following his upcoming fight at UFC 300.

Prochakza faces Aleksandar Rakic on the preliminary card of UFC 300: Pereira vs. Hill, which takes place on April 13 in Las Vegas. The main event features a light heavyweight title fight between champion Alex Pereira and challenger Jamahal Hill.

Prochazka, currently ranked number two in the division, believes a dominant win next weekend should earn him a title shot. Appearing in a recent interview with The Schmo, ‘Denisa’ had this to say:

“I believe, after that last fight [at UFC 295], after that early end of the fight [at UFC 295], If I win next week [against Rakic] and I hope and believe I’m able to win… I deserve a title shot.”

Prochazka’s last outing with Pereira at UFC 295 was an action-packed fight for the then-vacant title. While Prochakza started strong, Pereira’s leg kicks began to take a toll. A second-round left hook from Pereira sent Prochazka to the canvas, prompting a stoppage that some felt was premature.
