OKTAGON MMA’s Miroslav Broz plans to ‘not leave anything to the judges’ Saturday night
Miroslav Broz comes into his welterweight (turned catchweight) bout with Robert Pukač having nothing to lose and everything to gain.
Entering Saturday night, the 34-year-old Czech Republican native re-upped his contract while winning six of his last seven (with one draw) and is looking to continue his winning streak as part of OKTAGON 43’s main card, which is headlined by a highly anticipated middleweight rematch between promotional champion Patrik Kincl and Karlos Vémola.
Broz talked to BJPenn to discuss his upcoming bout and career goals, as he sports a 15-3-1 record with four wins coming via KO/TKO. Broz opens up a six-fight main card at 1 p.m. ET/10 a.m. PT in the U.S. and airs live on DAZN.

Q: You just signed a new deal and have won five of your last six. What made you choose to return to the promotion and why?
A: I have five wins and one draw from my last six matches. I wrestled in KSW and RFA, but my heart was drawn back home [with OKTAGON MMA].
Q: What do you know about Pukać, and do you see any weaknesses in his game?
A: I know a lot about him. He changed his gym, and he has some changes, but I think 80% of the time, I know what he wants to go into the match with. Nothing changes for me. I want to have a hard and good match and enforce my game plan.
Q: Your last win ended before the third round. Would you like not to leave it in the hands of the judges again?
