Czech MMA fighter Procházka facing shoulder surgery

The top Czech MMA fighter Jiří Procházka requires a shoulder operation that will keep him out for at six months. The UFC light heavyweight champion was due to face Glover Teixeir of Brazil in a title fight in the US in a fortnight’s time.

Procházka, who is 30, says he is ready to defend his title at any time when he has recovered from the injury, which he sustained in training in Las Vegas.
