What I’d do differently is I wouldnt tap: Glover Teixeira talks Prochazka rematch

Glover Teixeira, the second-oldest champion in the annals of the UFC, isn’t happy with the way in which of his defeat to Jiri Prochazka earlier this season.

The Brazilian, 42, lost the 205-pound title via fifth-round rear-naked choke in a fight where he was likely ahead on the scorecards (at the very least entering the fifth round) in a fight which snapped a six-fight skid against Czech fighter Prochazka and the veteran light heavyweight has vowed to go one better if they rematch at UFC 282 later this season.

And his starting place for revealing a better performance? Just dont tap.

What I’d do differently is I wouldnt tap, he thought to Ag Fight, as noted by Bloody Elbow. wouldnt get submitted. That fight transpired my way, therefore the preparation (for the rematch) would be the same. Needless to say were likely to make some adjustments, because he should keep coming back better, too. Thats about any of it, though. If the fight falls exactly the same way, Im likely to be focused never to to belong to any traps. It had been careless, really. Fifth round, I was winning the fight. Nobody expected a submission there. It had been really careless.

The Brazilian, who ‘s been around the activity for a lot more than 2 decades and was a former sparring partner of Chuck Liddell, had arguably experienced career-best form heading in to the fight with Prochazka, who himself has been defeated only once in the very best part of ten years.

The gameplan first-time around, Teixeira says, was to utilize all of the weapons available as a mixed martial artist to place the Czech star on the backfoot throughout but he added the Prochazkas defensive acumen became just a little sterner than he previously anticipated.

Im likely to be really focused, though, Teixeira said of the rematch. My goal would be to bring the belt back. The gameplan was to take him down once every round and win this way. Prochazka was an excellent fighter on the floor. He showed great defence and thats likely to eventually both folks. Next time it could even be considered a better fight, who knows?
