Former UFC lightweight champion Jiri Prochazka is not only going to get a new shot for gold come Saturday, he will also get the chance to avenge the tough loss against Alex Pereira.

“I saw that fight many times, but I will not change anything,” Prochazka said at the UFC 303 media day. “I want to do the same right now, this Saturday. I want to do the same, but much better. I want to be more precise in the details, watch the calf kicks just a little bit, and win, just win.”

“Everybody wants the trilogy, but for me, it doesn’t matter,” Prochazka said. “For me, right now, I’m not thinking about the trilogy, about who will be the next opponent or whatever. Right now, I’m here to win this fight. I’m here to show my best. I’m here to master all the aspects in the fight, that’s all.”
