The champ is once again the betting underdog as many think the Czech fighter has the power to KO him, and the lone path to victory for Teixeira is on the ground. However, for the champ, he says he plans to go at Prochazka on the feet and is ready for a war.
“I’m going to go after this guy with everything that I got. It’s going to be a war. And Still,” Teixeira said on the UFC promo video.
Many fans are looking forward to this fight as it does have Fight of the Night potential written all over it. Both Prochazka and Teixeira are always in entertaining fights and when speaking to BJPENN.com’s Just Scrap Radio the challenger was also looking forward to this fight and hoping for a war.
“I’m excited, I respect him because he’s a normal guy, a true warrior. He got the belt at his age, and he has beaten many guys and has won a lot of fights against young guys, strong guys. It’s amazing,” Prochazka said. “Especially the Smith and Santos (wins) that’s the guys in the best shape and he proved that he is a true champion. But, it’s coming my time and I know it’s my time and I just have to do my things and my strategy. I will show my evolved self from my last fight.”
Ultimately, both Glover Teixeira and Jiri Prochazka remain confident they will leave Singapore as the UFC light heavyweight champion. Both also expect to get the stoppage win, which only adds to the intrigue of the scrap.
