BLOCKBUSTER CHAMPIONSHIP DOUBLEHEADER! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) International Fight Week returns to T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada, on Sat., July 2, 2022, capped by a stacked card headlined by a blockbuster championship double header. In UFC 276’s pay-per-view (PPV) main event, reigning Middleweight champion, Israel Adesanya, defends his crown against No. 2-ranked contender, Jared Cannonier. In the co-main event, Featherweight champion, Alexander Volkanovski, has his sights set on successfully defending his title once again against No. 1-seeded contender, Max Holloway, for the third (and likely final) time.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

McGregor, who is never shy in posting social media reactions for a UFC event he isn’t involved in, took to Twitter early Saturday night to wish Prochazka good luck for the biggest fight of his life. Prochazka is a member of the same management team, Paradigm Sports, as McGregor is so the shoutout wasn’t a complete surprise.

“Notorious” not only wished Prochazka good fortune against Teixeira, but he mentioned the power that the title challenger possesses. Prochazka has recorded 25 career knockouts in 28 wins so McGregor is not exaggerating in his assessment of Prochazka’s potential in the UFC 275 main event.

“Paradigm Sports Jiri “Bomby jak pica” (big f—king bombs) Prochazka competing for the coveted UFC LHW title tonight! The unique styled Czech aiming to become the first champion of his country against the veteran Brazilian Champion. He wins we calling him “big f—king cheques,” wrote McGregor.

“Good luck Jiri! This guy is ready, watch what he is entering the arena in! We are rooting for you at HQ! Bring home the bacon and the sizzle.”

“Big fight night for the Czech Republic! The @ufc! World f—king domination!”

If Prochazka is able to defeat Teixeira tonight it will be one of the most impressive runs to a title in UFC light heavyweight history. The 29-year-old is coming off back-to-back knockout wins over Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes so adding Teixeira to that list will make Prochazka one of the hottest names in all of mixed martial arts.
