Alex Pereira Draws Inspiration from Jiri Prochazka’s Training Methods for UFC 295 Prep

Indeed, striking plays a huge role in the UFC, and fighters rely on methods like using punching bags and engaging in sparring sessions to enhance their striking power. However, Prochazka has a unique approach. He takes his training to the forest, where he uses trees as his punching bags. 

Ahead of UFC 267 in 2021, Prochazka went into the forest for his training, and he shared that on his official Instagram account with photos and videos of his outdoor training sessions where he was training inside the forest. Now, it appears that Pereira has followed a similar thing, choosing to train in the forest ahead of an upcoming ppv event. 

While Alex Pereira also opted for forest training, he took a slightly different approach compared to Prochazka. Rather than striking trees like his opponent, Pereira chose to train with a partner, focusing on striking pads. However, the fact that he trained in the forest shows that he has adopted the Prochazka approach, given the upcoming bout where they will face each other.
