Jiří Procházka releases video statement: ‘I’ll be back’

Jiří Procházka vacated the UFC light heavyweight title after suffering a shoulder injury that formed him out of the UFC 282 main event.

Procházka was scheduled to face former titleholder Glover Teixeira in a rematch. Instead, former champion and No. 2 ranked contender Jan Blachowicz and No. 3 ranked Magomed Ankalaev will fight for the vacant title on December 10 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

On Thursday, Procházka released a video statement on Instagram thanking people for their messages of support and vowed to come back and fight for the belt when he’s recovered.

“Hello everyone. Thank you for your messages,” Procházka said. “I have to say sorry to Glover. I cancelled that fight so short to the fight, and that’s life.

“Congratulations to Ankalaev and Blachowicz for a title chance. But still, I feel like a champion. After I will be back I will come for that title and more because my targets are higher than just a title. I’ll be back.

“Thank you. Thank you for your messages. Mastery. Victory.”
