Glover Teixeira defends his belt for the first time, Valentina Shevchenko is in the co-main event and there will be a rematch between two of the best female fighters, Zhang Weili vs. Joanna Jędrzejczyk.
UFC 275, which features all of these fights, will be held in June. The headlining of the event will be a light heavyweight title fight between the newly crowned king, Teixeira, and former Rizin champion, Jiri Prochazka.
Prochazka held two fights in the UFC, recording massive knockout victories against former title challengers Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes.
Teixeira defeated then-champion Jan Blachowicz and claimed his UFC gold. Now it is time for the Brazilian veteran to defend his belt for the first time.
Shevchenko will try to defend her belt in the co-main event again. Her rival is going to be Taila Santos.
Santos has 19 victories and only one loss. She is on a four-fight winning streak in the UFC after suffering a split decision loss in her debut bout in this promotion. Taila used to be a finisher before UFC, with 10KO and two submission wins. So far, she only earned one submission victory after signing.
Also, former champions, Weili and Jedrzejczyk will fight once more.
In their first bout, Weili earned a split decision victory and defended her belt for the first time. After that, Jedrzejczyk did not fight, but Weili suffered two defeats against the current champion, Rose Namajunas.
Suffering two defeats against Namajunas is one of the common things that these two ladies have.
