Now that the dust has settled from the UFC 274 event (results here) in Phoenix, Ariz., Ultimate Fighting Championship is shifting its promotional efforts to its next pay-per-view (PPV) offering ... and it’s a big one.
UFC 275 is set to go down on Sat., June 11, 2022, in Singapore, featuring a Light Heavyweight title fight between division champion, Glover Teixeira, and No. 2-seeded contender, Jiri Prochazka.
Teixeira won the title at 42 years of age by upsetting Jan Blachowicz at UFC 267 in Oct. 2021 via rear-naked choke (see it again here), marking his sixth straight win. As for Prochazka, he earned a shot at the title after racking up just two wins inside the Octagon, though he is on a 12-fight win streak and came in as the former RIZIN 205-pound champion.
In the co-main event, UFC women’s Flyweight champion, Valentina Shevchenko, will defend her title against Talia Santos, while Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Zhang Weili will collide in a rematch of their epic bout in March 2020.
Marvin Vettori and Robert Whittaker were set to throw down at this event before “The Reaper” bowed out of the event with an injury. As it stands, the promotion is actively seeking a replacement for “The Italian Dream.”
