Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochaska explained why he feels grateful for the decision to vacate his belt due to a serious shoulder injury.
“I feel grateful because this is not an obstacle, but an opportunity to see the same path from a different angle, while becoming stronger and more human,” the Czech fighter wrote on the social network. “Once you embrace the path of the Warrior and just become absolutely honest with yourself, deep down you will understand where is the truth and where is the lie, and where is your path. Title? I became a champion five months ago and the current situation has not changed my inner feeling that I am a Champion – this is the Feeling and the Reason that prompted me to take up MMA. To be the Champion among the best and to be the best of the best”
“This is my Infinite Motivation, Spiritual Consciousness and Will to Action. I can’t change or move it because it’s like Gravity, a physical law. So if anyone wins the UFC light heavyweight title and proves they are the best while I rest, I would be honored to see this performance and start preparing to showcase who is the True Champion and the best in the P4P rankings. I thank my fans for their support and faith. This is the beginning of something truly great. Love you. Bushido”
Recall that the vacant UFC light heavyweight championship belt on December 10 at UFC 282 in Las Vegas will be played by Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blakhovitch.
