Athletistic/ MMA. Russian mixed martial arts fighter Magomed Ankalaev has shared his opinion on one of his potential rivals – UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka.

“Will Prochazka be the most dangerous opponent? No, probably. Thiago Santos can be called more dangerous. Volkan Ozdemir can also be called up. I think Prochazka is not more dangerous than them.” said Ankalaev.

Magomed’s next fight is July 31 at UFC 277 in Las Vegas with American Anthony Smith. Ankalaev has 18 wins, 1 loss, 0 draw in mixed martial arts. Anthony Smith stats – 36 wins, 16 losses, 0 draws.

Jiri Prochazka won 29 victories in professional MMA, lost 3 times, and once in a fight with his participation there was a draw. On June 11, 2022, Prochaska won the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship by defeating Brazilian Glover Teixeira via submission.
