This past Saturday, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka tried to win back his title.

After getting stopped by Alex Pereira in the second round, via a brutal knockout, the Czech is giving himself an ultimatum.

“Hello everyone, thank you for all your support,” Prochazka said on Instagram. “Thanks to you, Alex, for the fight. You [were] better. And only one thing goes on my mind, that I need to evolve to the next level — or don’t fight again. So simple, to be the strongest, this is the way. Thank you. See you in the gym.”
