Head Coach reveals true reason behind Jiri Prochazka's

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka will fast and be without electricity for three days to focus on training for his next fight.

Jiri Prochazka got back in the win column with a come-from-behind victory over Aleksandar Rakić at UFC 300. The win came five months after falling to Alex Pereira for the then-vacant UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 295 in November.

Jiri Prochazka has been known to endeavor in unusual practices to prepare for his MMA fights. His training techniques range from striking trees, climbing mountains, and limiting his access to basic services like lighting.

As Jiri Prochazka prepares for a potential rematch against Pereira, he’s entering total solitude to focus on his skillset and training.

Jiri Prochazka enters isolation to prep for UFC comeback

In a recent tweet, Procházka announced his unorthodox training plans for his UFC return.

“3 days. No Light. No Food. Pure Focus. Pure Training. Preparation can start NOW,” Procházka tweeted Thursday.

Jiří Procházka is the intended next UFC light heavyweight title defense for Pereira, who defeated Jamahal Hill in the UFC 300 main event. Magomed Ankalaev is another name in the mix for the next light heavyweight title shot, but Pereira seems keen on running it back with Procházka.

Prochazka’s return at UFC 295 came after a long absence from fighting due to a serious shoulder injury. He was originally booked to face Glover Teixeira in a UFC 282 rematch before withdrawing due to the ailment.

Jiri Prochazka has embodied the persona of a Samurai during his UFC tenure. Ahead of his UFC 300 showdown with Rakić, his opponent called him a ‘fake samurai’, which ended up fueling his comeback win in the Octagon.

Procházka’s training methods are uncommon, but they’ve resulted in massive success during his career. He’ll likely discuss the results of his three-day isolation before re-entering the Octagon.
