Triple Take: Who will end 2021 as an unexpected UFC champion? – MMA Sports

If you are a keen observer of the international scene Jiri Prochazka (27-3 MMA, 1-0 UFC) is arguably already on your radar after an incredible 11-1 run under the Japanese Rizin FF banner. There he won a stop win for big show veterans CB Dollaway, Kazuyuki and others. Fujita, Brandon Halsey, Jake Hung, Satoshi Ishii, Muhammed Laural, Fabio Maldonado, and current Bellator light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov.

If you’re a fan looking only at the UFC, he would have stopped former title challenger Volcan Ooos Demir in the second round and got on your radar at least this July at UFC 251.

In any case, it is undeniable that this 28-year-old Czech fighter is a force to count and is undoubtedly becoming his prime minister.

Prohaska is currently ranked 13th in the latest USA TODAY Sports / MMA Junkie Light Heavyweight Rankings, but on February 27th, playing against Dominick Reyes in 3rd place will take a big step early on. I will. The summer title shot is not out of the question, as Prohaska, who won the UFC £ 205 title just a week later with Jan Blachowicz, could probably line up with the winner later this year. However, it depends heavily on the result. Polish champion for the “last style vendor”.

And listen, long-time champion Jon Jones, who says he doesn’t want to return to £ 205, just opens the title picture further. To be honest, I think Prohaska has the ability to compete with any of the names mentioned above, but it all starts with Reyes. The victory there and the sky are the limits.
