It was the first submission loss for Teixeira in his 20-year, 41-fight career, and White was in disbelief that Prochazka was the one to do it.
Watch White’s reaction below:
“He tapped!” White shouted. “No way! No f****** way. Jiri f****** tapped him out. No way. No way. What a f****** fight. What an absolute f****** war, man.”
The short clip ends with White having to check his phone for a slew of incoming messages, undoubtedly coming from observers as blown away by the outcome as he was.
White has pretty much seen it all in this business, so for him to react the way he did, you know that Prochazka’s championship win will resonate for years to come.
