UFC light heavyweight contender Jir Prochazka is one of the most compelling rising stars in the sport. Not only does Prochazka, 28, from Czechia, say he wants to raise the consciousness of the entire planet through the practice of martial arts, but the 205-pound menace is also adept at violently separating his opponents from their consciousnesses.
See the latest example below in which Prochazka blasted former title challenger Dominick Reyes into another dimension.

Even popular podcaster and UFC color commentator Joe Rogan is impressed with “Denisa”.
Almost a full week later, Rogan posted a screenshot of the knockout along with his personal opinion after rewatching the UFC’s latest superstar and his otherworldly knockout.
Rogan posted, “I’m rewatching @jirkaprochazka’s sensational performance from Saturday night. What an unusual fighter this dude is. Relentless seek and destroy martial arts assassin. 2 fights into the @ufc and he’s already one of the most interesting contenders in the sport.”
More than just another contender, Prochazka appears to be on his way to being fast-tracked to a title shot. He won’t get the next crack at UFC light heavyweight champion Jan Blachowicz, but he could follow after Blachowicz takes on Glover Texiera at UFC 266 on September 4.

Prochazka is used to capturing gold. He was already the inaugural light heavyweight champion for The Czech Republic’s Gladiator Fighting Championship as well as Japan’s RIZIN FF promotion.
Now Prochazka, aka the “martial arts assassin”, appears to be headed that way in the UFC.
