Early lifeEdit

Procházka was born on October 14, 1992 in the south Moravian part of Czechoslovakia (now Czech Republic).[1] Procházka's father died when he was 6 years old.[9] In his youth, Procházka played amateur football for TJ Družstevník Hostěradice. He was also an active freestyle BMX rider and a floorball player.[10]

As a teen, Procházka partook in street fights almost weekly, getting into more than 100 of them. This eventually led him to join the hooligan club tied to Prochazka's local soccer team, FC Zbrojovka Brno, where he would take part in organized group street fights with clubs of other teams, even participating in 30-on-30 brawls.[11]

Procházka first encountered mixed martial arts before beginning high school, after a friend showed him videos of kickboxer Ramon Dekkers and mixed martial artists Mirko Filipovic and Fedor Emelianenko.[12] After watching the film Never Back Down, he began to train in martial arts, in particular Thai boxing.[12] In 2011, Procházka won the Czech Muay Thai Association National Championship at 86.18 kilograms.

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Gladiator Fighting ChampionshipEdit

Debut and initial fightsEdit

Procházka made his professional MMA debut in April 2012 for the Gladiator Fighting Championship, the biggest promotion in his native Czech Republic at the time. He amassed a 7-2 record within his first two years of fighting professionally.[13]

Inaugural Light Heavyweight ChampionEdit

In his tenth professional bout, he won the inaugural GCF Light Heavyweight Championship in the back-and-forth fight against Czech MMA pioneer Martin Šolc via flying knee knockout on December 7, 2013 at GCF 26 FN. Video of the bout went viral in the Czech Republic and Procházka was also awarded a post-fight bonus.[13] The fight was later awarded 'Czech Fight of the Year' by major media outlets.[14]

Procházka defended his title against Tomáš Penz on June 6, 2014 at GCF 28: Cage Fight 4. He won the fight via technical knockout due to a flying knee in 41 seconds.[15]

Procházka signed a deal with the Rizin Fighting Federation shortly before his win against Evgeni Kondratov. After amassing a record of 14–2–1 during his first three years in the sport, Procházka as the first Czech entered the Rizin Fighting Federation in 2015.[16][17]

Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit

Debut and contender fightEdit

Procházka signed a contract with the UFC in January 2020.[36] He made his promotional debut against former UFC Light Heavyweight title challenger Volkan Oezdemir on July 11, 2020 at UFC 251. He won via knockout in the second round and was awarded a Performance of the Night bonus award.[37]

Procházka was expected to face two–time UFC Light Heavyweight Championship title challenger Dominick Reyes on February 27, 2021 at UFC Fight Night 186. However, in late January, Reyes was pulled from the fight, due to injury, and the bout was rescheduled for May 1, 2021 at UFC on ESPN: Reyes vs. Procházka.[38] In a back and forth fight, Procházka won the fight via knockout in the second round.[39] With this win, he was awarded the Performance of the Night and Fight of the Night bonus awards.[40]

UFC Light Heavyweight ChampionEdit

Procházka was scheduled to face Glover Teixeira for the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship on May 7, 2022 at UFC 274.[41] However, the bout was postponed to June 11, 2022 at UFC 275 for undisclosed reasons.[42] In a back and forth fight, Procházka won the bout and title via rear-naked choke submission in the fifth round, becoming the first Czech fighter to win a UFC championship.[43] This fight earned him the Fight of the Night award[44] and the Crypto.com "Fan Bonus of the Night" award paid in bitcoin of US$20,000 for second place.[45]

Personal lifeEdit

Procházka is well-known as a devoted follower of the Bushido principles, the samurai moral values and the Miyamoto Musashi's teachings and philosophy, especially the Musashi's The Book of Five Rings, which Procházka considered as a life-changing book for him.[46]

He is a supporter of FC Zbrojovka Brno and was involved in organized football hooliganism, including pre-arranged fights, until he started his professional combat sports career.[47]

Besides his native Czech, Procházka is conversational in English (as of his UFC debut).[48] While competing in UFC and Rizin FF, Procházka attended Masaryk University for his bachelor’s degree, majoring in security forces physical fitness policy.[49] He is also a graduate of the his local Protective Service Secondary Academy (Czech: SOŠ OOM), now the Brno's School of Law & Security (Czech: BPA).[50]

Procházka is known for his catchphrase, "BJP" (B'e-y'e-p'e; Czech: [bɛːjɛːpɛː] ( listen)). It is the Czech initialism for "Bomby jak piča(!)" (English: Bomb The Shit Out of 'Em[!] or Bomb-'em-up[!]), it is Procházka's battle cry and also the name of his merchandise brand.[51]

His unusual nickname, the Czech girl's given name Denisa, equivalent to English Denise, and Deniska (English: Denni), the diminutive of it, originated during a training camp, where Procházka had mistakenly responded to his trainer's call for another fighter, the girl of that name.[52]

Since 2017, Procházka has lived in a cottage about 30 minutes outside of his hometown of Brno, near a reservoir. The cottage has electricity and other amenities, however it has no gas and he gets his water out of a well.[11]
