Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka of the Czech Republic responded to Austrian fighter Aleksandar Rakić, who previously challenged him.
I am in, but the earliest time I can be in octagon is February/March. Accept?
Rakic was originally scheduled to rematch Jan Blachowicz on Jan. 21, 2024 at UFC 297 in Toronto, Canada, but Aleksandar said earlier that the Pole withdrew from the fight. The first fight between these fighters, held in May 2022, ended in favor of Blachowicz by technical knockout in the third round.
Rakić has 14 wins and three losses on his record.
Prochazka last entered the octagon against Alex Pereira in November of this year at UFC 295. In this confrontation, Jiri was defeated by technical knockout in the second round. He has 29 wins, four losses and one draw on his record.Blachowicz Pulls Out Of Fight Against Rakic At UFC 297 Burns vs Maddalena May Take Fight On March 9 At UFC 299 Moreno Named Backup Fighter For Pantoja And Royval's Title Fight At UFC 296
