UFC light heavyweight contender Jiri Prochazka has been named the finisher on the feet so far. 25 of his 28 wins ended by knockout or TKO. 21 of which occurred in the first round.

One might wonder how the 29-year-old Czech fighter developed such a skill. Recently appeared at MMA Hour, He revealed the special part of his regular training regimen, which involves punching a padded tree 500 times a day using four ounce gloves.

“It helps me … it’s good for the body in technique. To be like a rock,” Prochazka told Ariel Helwani. This is great training for the body.

“After 200, 500 shots to the tree, I go to the bag, and the bag is very easy.”

Here’s the crazy part: Prochazka doesn’t take any breaks in this particular routine.

“There are no breaks. My training should be like this because if you want to show something insane, if you want to show something new, you should get such training.

Prochazka last saw action in May against former title contender Dominic Reyes, who fired him with a round two elbow. The show earned $ 100K in bonuses for both Fight of the Night and Performance of the Night.
