TWO TITLES UP FOR GRABS! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) makes its highly anticipated return to Madison Square Garden in New York City on Sat., Nov. 11, 2023, with a re-worked pay-per-view (PPV) main card. In the ESPN+-streamed main event, former 205-pound roost-ruler, Jiri Prochazka, will lock horns with ex-Middleweight kingpin, Alex Pereira, for the promotion’s vacant Light Heavyweight title. In UFC 295’s co-main event, top-ranked Heavyweight contenders, Sergei Pavlovich (No. 2) and Tom Aspinall (No. 4), will collide for the interim strap after division champion, Jon Jones, was injured with a torn pectoral muscle and forced to withdraw (video).

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

Joining Bisping at the three-man commentary desk is fellow retired ex-champion Daniel Cormier, who will lend his expertise to play-by-play man Jon Anik. As expected, Bruce Buffer — affectionately known as the “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” — will handle fighter introductions.

UFC correspondent Megan Olivi will handle backstage interviews while Brian Custer, Anthony Smith, and Din Thomas hit the desk for the UFC 275 post-fight show. In addition, John Gooden and Laura Sanko will call the action for this week’s “Road to UFC” tournament with Justin Bernard serving as Octagon announcer.

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, defending flyweight titleholder Valentina Shevchenko puts her 125-pound strap on the line opposite surging Brazilian bruiser Talia Santos. In addition, former strawweight champions Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk run it back after previously staging one of the most insane female fights in the history of combat sports.
