On Saturday evening, the UFC president shared a video on social media of his reaction to Jiri Prochazka becoming UFC light heavyweight champion with a last-minute submission of Glover Teixeira.


The narrative that entered the main event of UFC 275 between light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira and top challenger Jiri Prochazka was that Prochazka needed to do everything in his power to stay off the field in order to become champion.

Prochazka not only threw the narrative for a loop by surviving round after round, but eventually pulled off a submission of his own in the final 30 seconds of the fight to win the title in an all-time great fight.

It was the first submission defeat for Teixeira in his 20-year, 41-fight career, and White didn’t believe Prochaska was going to do it.


Jiri Prochazka has fought 32 times as a professional and only four times has lasted more than 12.5 minutes. Prochazka is a Finnish or finished fighter.

Teixeira is a man who takes advantage of mistakes very well and during his six-fight winning streak, four wins have come from stoppages in less than 2.5 rounds.

Both men are good finishers, both men can be eliminated and Prochazka’s style is one that produces either a great finish or leaves an opening that a clever veteran like Teixeira can take advantage of.

Fight Card:

In his third fight at the UFC, knockout artist Jiri Prochazka surprised Glover Teixeira and the attendees at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on Saturday with a submission in the fifth round to clinch the light heavyweight title.

Let’s take a look at the biggest takeaways.

1. Jiri Prochazka’s title potential 

Jiri Prochazka deserves to be the new UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. He went through hell against Glover Teixeira and somehow found a way to win by securing a rear-neck choke with only 28 seconds in Round 5.

It was an excellent end to a quick classic fight, and Prochazka (29-3-1 MMA, 3-0 UFC) showed his potential by overcoming some true adversity to net the second latest title-fight stoppage in UFC history. appeared.

2. Fight IQ costs Glover Teixeira 

Teixeira (33-8 MMA, 16-6 UFC) entered Round 5 of his epic clash with Prochazka on two of the three-judge scorecards, only for him to make a series of fatal errors down the stretch that This allowed him to fall into the position to be presented for the first time in his illustrious 20-year career.

It is plausible that Teixeira did not hesitate to tell Daniel Cormier in his post-fight interview that he would return to score a run to earn the belt. However, there are some legitimate concerns about whether a fight like Teixeira will replace the long-term 42-year-old.

3. Did Valentina Shevchenko lose to Taila Santos? 

Valentina Shevchenko is absolutely certain compared to the rest of the world that she clearly beat Tala Santos. And his case is quite valid, honestly.

There’s no doubt that Santos (19-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) presented Shevchenko (23-3 MMA, 12-2 UFC) with a challenge she has yet to crown as the UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion. didn’t want to see.

4. Farewell to Joanna Champion 

Joanna Jedrzejczyk hasn’t been very active over the years anyway, but knowing she won’t be back after retiring from MMA after her brutal spinning backfist knockout defeat to Zhang Weili is very sad.

Most retirements don’t last in this game, as we’ve learned many times. But Jedrzejczyk (16-5 MMA, 10-5 UFC) seemed pretty honest, and the fact that she’s almost 35 years old, with almost 20 years of being a Muay-Thai or MMA fighter, seems to suggest that We’ve seen his last inside the octagon.

5. Jack Della Maddalena delivers 

Della Maddalena (12-2 MMA, 2-0 UFC) told me on Wednesday of Fight Week that he was going to shine in this performance and that no one else in the UFC has ever been able to do: Stop Emiev from the inside distance.

He not only achieved that goal, but secured a TKO in the first round after surviving the initial horror courtesy of Emiev’s slick submission attempt.
