HISTORY IN THE MAKING! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) will stage its first-ever numbered pay-per-view (PPV) event in Southeast Asia with “Teixeira vs. Prochazka” from inside Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, on Sat., June 11, 2022. In UFC 275’s PPV main event, Light Heavyweight champion, Glover Teixeira, will lock horns with No. 2-ranked berserker, Jiri Prochazka, while women’s Flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko, tangles with No. 5-seeded Taila Santos in the co-feature. And, of course, Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Zhang Weili will run back their epic 2020 “Fight of the Year,” with the winner likely earning a future Strawweight title shot against division queenpin, Carla Esparza.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Jedrzejczyk (16-4) returns to action after more than two years on the sidelines to rematch fellow 115-pound ex-champion Zhang Weili. Their “Fight of the Night” at UFC 248 — which ended in favor of “Magnum” — is widely considered one of the greatest female fights in history.

Shevchenko (22-3) defends her flyweight title against Brazilian bruiser Taila Santos in the UFC 275 co-main event. “Bullet” defeated Jedrzejczyk at UFC 231 back in late 2018 and also holds a couple of victories over the Polish piston from their pre-UFC days on the Muay Thai circuit.

UFC 275 will be headlined by the light heavyweight title fight pitting reigning division champion Glover Teixeira against 205-pound smashing machine Jiri Prochazka. Elsewhere on the card, flyweight fighters Rogerio Bontorin and Manel Kape look to make some noise in the 125-pound division, while Jack Della Maddalena and Ramazan Emeev hook ‘em up at welterweight.
