Chimaev broke Prochazka's ribs during sparring
The Czech athlete remembered one not very funny incident from his life.
Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiri Prochazka told a story on social networks that training and sparring of fighters are often in no way inferior to real fights in their intensity.
For example, once the Czech sparred in the gym with the Swedish fighter Khamzat Chimaev, and both opponents parted too much, slightly forgetting that they were not in the octagon.
And during this initially playful duel, Chimaev, without realizing it, broke the Czech ribs.
“One rib was broken, but not completely. The rest of the ribs also flew. I didn't even notice it in sparring. Khamzat was good, but I still took the sparring,” said the athlete.
