UFC light heavyweight title: Glover Teixeira vs. Jiri Prochazka
UFC 275 Glover vs. Jiri is an upcoming mixed martial arts event produced by the Ultimate Fighting Championship that will take place on June 12, 2022, at Singapore Indoor Stadium in Kallang, Singapore.
A UFC Light Heavyweight Championship bout between current champion Glover Teixeira and former Rizin Light Heavyweight Champion Jiří Procházka was originally expected to take place at UFC 274, but it was eventually moved to headline this event due to undisclosed reasons.
A UFC Women’s Flyweight Championship bout between current champion Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos is expected to take place at the event.
A women’s strawweight rematch between former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champions Zhang Weili and Joanna Jędrzejczyk is expected to take place at the event. The pair previously met at UFC 248 where Zhang successfully defended the championship against Jędrzejczyk by split decision. The winner is expected to become the next title challenger.
A welterweight bout between Orion Cosce and Mike Mathetha was expected to take place at UFC 271, but Cosce pulled out due to undisclosed reasons. They were then expected to meet at this event. Once again the bout was cancelled, as Mathetha got injured in late May.
A middleweight bout between former UFC Middleweight Champion Robert Whittaker (also The Ultimate Fighter: The Smashes welterweight winner) and former title challenger Marvin Vettori was expected to take place at the event. However, Whittaker withdrew due to an injury in April. The bout was then rescheduled for UFC Fight Night 214.
Kang Kyung-ho and Saimon Oliveira were scheduled to meet in a bantamweight bout at this event. However, Oliveira withdrew due to unknown reasons and was replaced by Danaa Batgerel.
A flyweight bout between former Rizin Bantamweight Champion Manel Kape and Rogério Bontorin was expected to take place at the event.
However, the bout was scrapped the day before the event due to Bontorin suffering kidney issues related to cutting weight.
During fight week (June 9-10), the UFC hosted the opening quarterfinal round of Road to UFC: Singapore at the same venue, with two five-bout events for each day for a total of 10 bouts per day. The 32 contestants for the tournament come from China (through the UFC Academy), India, Indonesia, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, and Thailand.
