Ahead of their upcoming clash at UFC 275, Glover Teixeira has issued an adrenaline-rushing challenge to his contender Jiri Prochazka, as the UFC Light Heavyweight champion makes it clear that he will go after his opponent with “everything” he has to offer.
It’s going to be a war: Glover Teixeira on facing Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275
Teixeira, who became the Light Heavyweight champion after defeating Jan Błachowicz at UFC 267 back in October last year, will be making his first title defense against Prochazka in the main event of UFC 275, set to take place on 11th June in Singapore.
Going into the fight, the 42-year-old Brazilian veteran has emerged as the underdog as many MMA fans have their money on his younger Czech opponent, but Teixeira says he will go after Prochazka with everything in his arsenal and that the showdown at the Singapore Indoor Stadium will be nothing short of 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 stated on the recently released UFC 275 promo video on the UFC’s official YouTube channel.
Teixeira vs Prochazka has all the excitement that the MMA fandom wants and is anticipated to be one of the best fights of the year, and recently speaking to BJPENN.com’s Just Scrap Radio, ” The Czech Samurai” himself shed appraisal on Teixeira becoming champion at this age but stated that he will show how much he has evolved from his last outing in the Octagon.
“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,” said Prochazka, “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.” [H/T BJPenn.com]
