The light heavyweight and flyweight champions wrap up a stretch of six UFC title fights in three months at UFC 275 and an official poster for the event was released Sunday.
In the main event, Teixeira defends his title for the first time since winning it from Jan Blachowicz at UFC 267 last October. The 42-year-old has won six straight fights, but faces one of the division’s most dangerous contenders in former RIZIN champion Jiri Prochazka.
In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko looks to add another win to her spotless flyweight record as she defends her title against Taila Santos. Shevchenko can make it seven straight successful title defenses with a win, while Santos looks to play the spoiler coming off of four straight victories.
Also featured on the poster is the highly anticipated rematch between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk. Zhang defeated Jedrzejczyk by split decision in a strawweight title defense at UFC 248 in March 2020 in what is widely regarded as one of the greatest fights in MMA history.
UFC 275 takes place at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore, on June 11 (June 12 local time).
