This Saturday UFC will make history in Singapore with UFC 275: Teixeira vs Prochazka. The event will be the first UFC numbered bill to take place in Southeast Asia and will also feature the first UFC championship fights contested in the region.
Semi-featherweight champion Glover Teixeira will face No. 2 Jiri Prochazka and women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko takes on No. 4 Taila Santos.
Semi-complete weight championship
In the UFC’s competitive semi-completeweight, champion Glover Teixeira will defend the title for the first time since winning the belt at UFC 267 after a second-round submission of Jan Blachowicz. On the other side of the octagon will be Jiri Prochazka, fighting for the title for the first time, who earned the opportunity with back-to-back knockouts of Volkan Oezdemir – in his UFC debut – and Dominick Reyes.
Women’s flyweight championship
UFC women’s flyweight champion and best pound-for-pound fighter in the UFC, Valentina Shevchenko will defend her title for the seventh time and look to extend her winning streak to eight victories. A former Dana White’s Contender Series participant and No. 4-ranked fighter, Brazil’s Taila Santos fights for the title for the first time after a brilliant four-fight winning streak.
Rematch of the year
China’s first UFC women’s champion and current No. 2 strawweight champion Zhang Weili takes on fellow former strawweight champion Joanna Jedrzejczyk. This bout is a highly anticipated rematch of the 2020 fight between the two that became a divisional classic and the 2020 Fight of the Year.
