Jiri Prochazka ahead of UFC 282: I want to show my best performance

Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira gave us without a doubt one of the most exciting matches of the year, and in the sixth month they fought in Singapore. Jiri won on that occasion, but the UFC simply had to match these two fighters once again.

Both had their moments in the match, but in the end Jiri Prochazka came out with the belt. Even those who predicted his victory certainly did not foresee that way of victory, especially against an excellent grounder like Glover, but the "RNC" that Jiri locked in the last round was too much for a tired Teixeira.

Jiri is well aware that he can do much better, and if he wants to beat Glover again, he will definitely have to be at least a little bit better than in the last match: “I will show my best performance,” stated Prochazka during a recent interview with ESPN.

“Like every time, I’m just working on my mistakes from the last fight. I don’t want to repeat the mistakes, from wrestling and jiu-jitsu, to showing more in my stand-up. Because, I just show, maybe 15-20 percent”.

He continued,

“I’m fighting because I want to show my best performance, yeah? It’s all about that. To be satisfied with that. I want to be more satisfied with my performance, it’s all about that”.

How much better will appear, we will find out in less than a month. Prochazka and Teixeira headline UFC 282, which takes place on the 10th of next month, and we have nothing left but to wait for the new PPV event, which offers many other interesting fights.
