UFC 275: All You Need to Know

Singapore hosts UFC 275 on Saturday with two titles on the line as light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira and flyweight belt-holder Valentina Shevchenko defend.

After 10 years in the UFC, Teixeira steps into the octagon this weekend as a defending champion for the first time.

The veteran Brazilian faces a tough maiden defence of his gold with highly-rated Jiri Prochazka looking to complete his meteoric rise to the top.

The co-main event also has a title on the line when flyweight champion Shevchenko makes the seventh defence of her belt against Taila Santos.

What: UFC 275, Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka

Where: Singapore, Singapore Indoor Stadium

When: 01:00 BST, Sunday 12th June, 2022

How to watch: BT Sport 1

Odds: Glover Teixeira 6/4, Jiri Prochazka 1/2

What's the significance of the main event?

Teixeira, now aged 42, should be in the twilight of his career but six successive wins have allowed him to enjoy a fairytale run to the light heavyweight title.

The Brazilian defeated Jan Blachowicz via submission to pick up the title at UFC 267 and he'll need another top performance to retain the belt this weekend.

Prochazka may only be two fights into his career with the UFC but he's a former Rizin light heavyweight champion and a formidable adversary.

With 12 successive wins under his belt, Prochazka, who is ranked No.2, is on the verge of confirming his credentials as the best in the world.

Meanwhile, long-term flyweight champion Shevchenko is in action for the first time since September when she takes on challenger Santos.

Shevchenko is already regarded as one of the best women to ever step into the octagon, having made six successful defences of her belt, and she's merely now further growing her legacy.

Santos, ranked No.4 in the division, is riding a four-fight win streak but Shevchenko is a massive step up in level.
