We’re less than one week away from UFC 275, taking place inside Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, on Sat., June 11, 2022.
Two titles are on the line: Glover Teixeira and Jiri Prochazka will fight for the Light Heavyweight belt, and Valentina Shevchenko will defend her women’s Flyweight strap against Taila Santos. In addition, Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Zhang Weili fight again after having the “Fight of the Year” in 2020.
And to get you hyped, UFC has put together this solid “Countdown” preview video.
The episode starts with 205-pound kinpin, Glover Teixeira, and his long, long road to the title. Teixeira has been fighting professionally for 20 years and has been in UFC for a decade. A five-fight win streak earned him a shot against Jan Blachowicz, and “Old Man Glover” made good on his opportunity to seize the title at 42 years of age (watch it).
Across the cage for him this weekend is Jiri Prochazka, who has spent most of his career fighting in Japan. Now through this “Countdown” video you get to see what the excitement was about when “Denisa” finally signed with UFC. It took him just two violent wins inside the Octagon for the promotion to give him his title shot.
And if you don’t know who Taila Santos is, you’re not the only one. Catch up on the women’s Flyweight challenger here as she faces her stiffest test ever: six-time defending champion, Valentina Shevchenko.
And finally, we mentioned Weili and Jedrzejczyk having the “Fight of the Year” in 2020. “Countdown” to UFC 275 takes us back to that night and shares all the highlights, plus gets a lot of talk from Joanna “Champion” as she prepares for another run at the title she once held with an iron fist.
