The main event of UFC 275 features UFC Light Heavyweight Champion Glover Teixeira defending his title for the first time against Jiří Procházka. The champion won the title by defeating Jan Blachowicz by submission at UFC 267 on Oct. 30, 2021.
At 42 years old, Teixeira hopes to prove he can still be the best in his division. However, he faces a dangerous challenger.
Procházka is coming into the fight on a 12-fight win streak, with 11 of his wins happening by knockout.
His last win was against former title contender Dominick Reyes by knockout via a brutal spinning elbow at UFC Vegas 25 on May. 1, 2021.
Talia Santos will hope to stop the dominant reign of UFC Women’s Flyweight Champion Valentina Shevchenko in the co-main event. Although she is the underdog, Santos has only lost one fight in her career, which happened by split decision.
Her last win was against Joanne Wood by submission at UFC Vegas 43 on Nov. 20, 2021. But Santos will have her most significant challenge to date in fighting Shevchenko.
The champion is regarded as the best pound-for-pound women’s fighter in the UFC. She has successfully defended her title six times.
Her last win was against Lauren Murphy by knockout at UFC 266 on Sep. 25, 2021. Shevchenko will attempt to continue her impressive title defense streak and could potentially move up to fight for the UFC Bantamweight Championship.
