UFC 275 Main Event preview

Glover Teixeira vs Jiri Prochazka

Best bet – Jiri Prochazka to win at KO, TKO or DQ

Glover Teixeira makes the first defence of his light heavyweight title in the main event at UFC 275 but it’s unlikely he’ll be leaving the octagon with the belt draped around his waist.

After beating Jan Blachowicz to claim gold, Teixeira now has the unenviable task of squaring off against one of the most exciting and effective fighters in the division – Jiri Prochazka.

Prochazka, a former Rizin light heavyweight champion, is just two fights into his UFC career but successive second-round KO victories have earned him a title shot.

The Czech is on a 12-fight win streak and he’s finished his last 10 opponents via KO or TKO with 25 of his 28 career victories also coming by that route.

Teixeira won’t be able to match Prochazka’s speed and his best route to victory relies on taking the contest down to the mat.

However, Prochazka has previously shown he’s extremely tough to keep down, even if you manage to secure a takedown, and the feeling is the challenger will win this with another KO or TKO victory.

Valentina Shevchenko vs Talia Santos

Valentina Shevchenko to win

#1 women’s pound-for-pound fighter Valentina Shevchenko is defending her flyweight title for the seventh time in Singapore and Talia Santos looks set to be her latest victim.

Shevchenko is so well-rounded – demonstrated by the manner of her victories with eight wins by KO/TKO, seven by submission and seven via a decision – and doesn’t appear to have any weaknesses, or certainly hasn’t displayed any when stringing together an eight-fight win streak.

Santos undeniably has plenty of talent, beating Molly McCann, Gillian Robertson, Roxanne Modafferi and Joanne Wood to earn a shot at the champion.

But none of that quartet can claim to boast the same skillset as Shevchenko and it’s likely we’ll see the gulf in class in Saturday’s co-main event.

Zhang Weili vs Joanna Jedrzejczyk

Fight to go the distance – Yes

After over two years of inactivity, Joanna Jedrzejczyk returns to the octagon on Saturday to face a familiar foe in the shape of Zhang Weili.

The pair fought hard for five rounds when Jedrzejczyk was last seen with Zhang coming out on top via split decision to win the strawweight title.

Zhang has fought twice since that victory but both of those contests, which came against Rose Namajunas, have ended in defeat.

But, as was clear when they last met, there is little to pick between the two fighters and the feeling is that this one could run the full course.

Jedrzejczyk has gone the distance in 14 of her 20 career fights, including each of her last five, we could be set for a three-round classic this weekend.

Rogerio Bontorin vs Manel Kape

Manel Kape to win by KO, TKO or DQ

Former Rizin bantamweight champion Manel Kape meets Rogerio Bontorin in a flyweight bout on the main card.

After losing his first two fights in the UFC, Kape has won plenty of admirers courtesy of back-to-back KO/TKO finishes over Ode’ Osbourne and Zhalgas Zhumagulov to climb to #14 in the rankings.

Bontorin is ranked #8 but has endured a tough run over the past two years, losing three and drawing one as he attempted to break into the top five in the division.

The Brazilian suffered a hugely damaging knockout loss to Kai Kara-France in early 2021 before losing via decision against Brandon Royval last time out.

Kape is expected to continue his rise up the rankings and, having ended his last two fights with a stoppage in the opening round, another KO or TKO victory should be on the cards.
