“That was a very hard thing for me,” Prochazka said Monday on The MMA Hour. “I don’t want to talk about a lot. But after a talk with the UFC, with the directors of UFC, I had to let the show must go on, and I respected it.
“For me, I want to stay the champion. It doesn’t matter if I’m injured. But if it’s the best for the light heavyweight division right now, to make it better, for me, it doesn’t matter. My way is to be the best fighter in the world, not just in the light heavyweight division. So that’s why I vacated the title and wait for my moment to be in full power, and take it back.”
