The UFC is heading back to Singapore for the first time in over three years on June 11th and for the first time they are bringing a major pay-per-view event with them, with UFC 275 set to feature two title fights.
Headlining the show will be a light-heavyweight title fight featuring current champion Glover Teixeira going up against Jiri Prochazka.
The 42-year-old Teixeira delighted fans by winning the title at this late stage in his career courtesy of a second round submission win over Jan Blachowicz back in October of last year, marking his sixth win in a row.
Former Rizin’ champion Prochazka presents a major threat to his title though as he has had a fearsome finishing rate as a striker throughout his 30+ fight career so far and that’s continued since joining the UFC, having racked up two KO victories against two former title contenders Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes so far.
Meanwhile, in the co-main event dominant women’s flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko is looking to make the seventh defense of her title against taila Santos, who is in the midst of a four-fight winning streak in the Octagon.
That’s not all though as the main card will also feature a major middleweight fight between former champion Robert Whittaker and Marvin Vettori.
