Recently on The MMA Hour, Jiri Prochazka shared his thoughts on fighting Alex Pereira for a rematch.

"I would like to fight for the title," Prochazka said, as quoted by mmafighting.com. "Especially after the decision in New York. The fact that I won the fight on Saturday, that's the only thing I feel right now. I feel that maybe my performance on Saturday — getting punched, to accept the punches and this will not work with Pereira, but people have to understand, I know how to make a [specific] fight with a fighter.

I will fight another one with another fighter, I can fight like another man".
