Kayla Harrison Reacts To First Pro Loss At 2022 PFL World Championships: "Failure Is My Fuel"

Last month at UFC 275, Jiri Prochazka became the new UFC light heavyweight champion when he spectacularly submitted Glover Teixeira in the fifth round in what was a fight of the year contender.

The light heavyweight division is currently quite weak and there are very few fighters in the division which seem like legitimate challengers to Prochazka's title.

The two fighters who probably threaten Prochazka's reign the most are the man who he has just defeated Glover Teixeira and Magomed Ankalaev.

Earlier today Prochazka took to social media to reveal who he wants to make the first defence of his light heavyweight title against.

Check out the video below to see what Prochazka had to say.

In the video, Prochazka reveals he wants to defend his title against the man he took it from, Glover Teixeira because he believes he deserves it.

This is a fight which every MMA fan would love to see again as not only was the fight between them at UFC 275 one of the best fights in the history of the light heavyweight division, but because it is a genuinely exciting and intriguing matchup.

Obviously there is currently no timeframe for when the fight would take place but it is clear that both fighters are keen for it to happen.
