Dana said “He jumped out and he had some guys in the gym (they tried to put him back) and he freaking smashed and he wrecked his shoulder. I’ll tell you, I’ll tell him, I’ll tell all the fighters, if anything happens to you, jump in a car and go to the hospital….even at risk Don’t throw it away. Just go to the hospital. This is insane.”

While the doctors were telling Prochazka the gravity of the situation, he still wanted to fight. He promised Dana he would be back in 6 months, but Dana asked him not to put extra pressure on himself and just focus on getting better.
