Our NEW light heavyweight title fight headlining #UFC282 🏆

Jiri Prochazka is out of UFC 282 due to a severe orthopedic injury. Timeframe for recovery is upwards of a year. According to UFC and Jiri's representatives, it was his decision to vacate the belt out of respect for other contenders. Jiri's injury first reported by @KevinI
Just spoke to Glover and Jiri’s team. Here’s the full story on UFC 282, live from my car.
UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka has vacated his 205-pound championship after suffering a severe shoulder injury, UFC president Dana White told @bokamotoESPN
My two cents on the 282 shakeup:
Should have gone with Glover x Jan. Bigger fight. Bigger names. Glover deserves it. Easy.
If Glover wins, you are back to Glover x Jiri 2. If Jan wins, you get the big Jiri x Jan fight. Very weird they didn’t go this route. It was right there.

Callin it right now. Jiri Prochazka had a training accident and hurt himself and is vacating his title because straight up bushido code. He feels he brought shame upon his ancestors for withdrawing from a fight and doesnt believe he has the right to hold a title he cannot defend.

Jiri Prochazka the type of guy to burst into Dana White’s office, unceremoniously drop the belt on his desk using his injured arm and say “I’ll be back for what was once mine.” Then bow and walk out.
Jiri is bushido as fuck lol. I am injured, please take my belt so I can earn this again. This is the way of the warrior.
🚨| More info on #UFC282 situation from @arielhelwani
🔘 Jiri wanted to fight Glover with just one arm but doctors told him shoulder could be hurt forever if he fought through the pain.
🔘 UFC offered Glover vacant tile fight against Ankalaev on December 10th.
I’d honestly be surprised if surgical anesthesia even works on Jiri. He probably looks at it as a test of his mental will.
škoda dopíči ... fight game je cold world... respekt Jiří 100 že se okamžitě vzdal titulu a neblokuje ho jak je zvykem
