Prochazka beat Glover Teixeira to become the new light-heavyweight champion after submitting him with just 28 seconds to go in the final round.
In what has been dubbed as one of the best MMA fights off all time, Prochazka was down on two of the judges scorecards heading into round five.
The Czech Republic star is now set to defend his belt against former champ Blachowicz, who lost the title to Teixeira in October.
But after he defeated Aleksandar Rakic last month, the Polish veteran was installed as the No1 contender.READ MORE ON UFCKICK INTO GEAR McGregor seen kicking for first time since leg snap as UFC comeback nears
Speaking after becoming his country's first UFC champion, Prochazka confirmed his intentions to face Blachowicz next.
He said: "Now it’s Jan, I think the next challenger. So I would like to fight Jan because I think I have the keys to defeat him.
"So let’s do that. I think Europe would be the best place between the Polish and Czech republic.
"It’s too early to talk about the next fight. But I know the next fight will be against Jan, and I will be prepared for that.”latest ufc newsKICK INTO GEAR McGregor seen kicking for first time since leg snap as UFC comeback nearsEYE CAN'T SEE UFC star shows off eye which needs surgery after head clash with ShevchenkoROPED IN Woodley claims he beat Jake Paul after knocking him 'through the f***ing ropes'BRIT TASTY Brit Edwards CONFIRMED for UFC title fight against Usman on August 20 in America

And McGregor has called for UFC to stage the PPV encounter in Europe so fans can see the contest at night instead of in the early hours of the morning.
The Irishman shared footage of Prochazka's interview on his Instagram story.
He captioned the post: "European stadium at PPV hours!"
There has been just one UFC event staged in Europe since November 2019 - UFC Fight Night 204 in London earlier this year.
McGregor has stepped up his recovery since breaking his leg in his trilogy defeat against Dustin Poirier last year after uploading a video of him leathering a heavy bag with left leg kicks.
Though it has been claimed that his octagon comeback will likely take place in early 2023.
