UFC 275 : Glover Teixeira v Jiri Prochazka
Glover Teixeira is back to defend his light heavyweight title for the first time since winning it in UFC 267, against Jiri Prochazka. The 42 year old old Teixeira has won six straight fights, but may have the fight of his life against the dangerous contender.
Prochazka knocked out past title challengers Dominick Reyes and Volkan Oezdemir in his first two UFC outings to extend his current win streak to 12.
Meanwhile, in the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko looks to add another win to her spotless flyweight record as she defends her title against Taila Santos. Shevchenko will add to her impressive resume, marking her seventh straight title defense while Santos is looking to ruin the party as she comes off four straight wins in a row.
Plus, rounding out a huge card, a highly anticipated rematch between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Widely regarded as one of the greatest fights in all of MMA history between these two powerhouses, in what was a split decision requiring both fighters to head to the hospital immediately. We’re expecting their next fight to go off.
