UFC free fight: Jiri Prochazka knocks Volkan Oezdemir out cold

Jiri Prochazka put the 205-pound division on notice in his UFC debut.

Prochazka, a former Rizin FF light heavyweight champion, drew a stern test in former UFC title challenger Volkan Oezdemir at UFC 251 in July.

The bright lights didn’t faze Prochazka one bit, who came out confident, switching stances and taunting Oezdemir early. He used his unorthodox movement and defense to throw off Oezdemir, who had some success landing in Round 1 by briefly wobbling Prochazka.

But in Round 2, Prochazka continued to press forward and less than a minute into the frame, he caught Oezdemir with a high kick, followed shortly by a huge overhand right that put his lights out.

Prochazka (27-3-1 MMA, 1-0 UFC) returns to action on Feb. 27, when he takes on Dominick Reyes (12-2 MMA, 6-2 UFC) in the headliner of a UFC Fight Night event, which is expected to take place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
