The UFC showcased a World Championship Doubleheader this weekend at their UFC 275 PPV event.

The first title fight in our Main Event was a collision between reigning UFC Light Heavyweight Champion, Glover Teixeira (33-7) and the undefeated contender, Jiří Procházka (28-3):

Teixeira, the Brazilian American, fighting out of Bethel, Connecticut, entered the Octagon with a historic 33-7 career record. While holding the distinction of being the second oldest UFC Champion in history, behind Randy Couture, as well as being the oldest first time Champ. He secured the LHW title in a battle against Jan Blachowicz at UFC 267, last October, 2021, making this his first title defense.

‘Denisa’, fighting out of the Czech Republic, is a former Rizin FF LHW Champ and was the inaugural Czech GCF LHW Champ as well. He faced this title fight with a 28-3 professional record, although this would be his third fight in the UFC. His win streak includes, Volkan Oezdemir in his UFC debut at UFC 251 in July, 2020, followed by a victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC Vegas 25 in the headlining bout of the event, which led him to this title fight. A whirlwind ride to the top of the promotion at the age of 29.

In our second title fight of the night, we will had the battle for the Flyweight Championship:

Reigning champion, “Bullet’ Valentina Shevchenko, holding an 22-3 record, fighting out of Kyrgyzstan, with the distinction of being the longest reigning champ in the UFC having won her title back at UFC 231 in December of 2018. The southpaw’s specialties are in Muay Thai and Kickboxing, with a strength in striking.

Meanwhile, the #4 ranked contender, Taila Santos, was holding an impressive 18-2 record, fighting out of Brazil. She holds a blue belt in BJJ with a strength in grappling. Having started training at the age of sixteen under her Dad, who is a Muay Thai coach. She put in a season on the DWCS (Dana White Contender Series – Brazil 2), defeating Estefani Almeida to win her UFC contract. She’s coming off an entertaining POTN bout against Joanne Wood last November, 2021; among other impressive performances. Ten of her victories have been via knockout, three via subs and six via decisions.

Also on the PPV card, we had the big rematch that was two years in the making:

Strawweights ‘Magnum’ Zhang Weili (21-3) vs. Joanna Jędrzejczyk (16-4) going to war in what was sure to be a barn burner, since neither of these ladies know how to put on a boring fight. We had Zhang, the former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion, the first Chinese champ, who is also the former Kunlun Fight (KLF) Strawweight Champion. She fights out of Beijing, China. Out of her 21 wins, she’s had ten knockouts, seven submissions and four decisions heading into the Octagon for UFC 275: Zhang vs Joanna 2.

Then there was the returning Polish Muay Thai/Kickboxer, former UFC Women’s Strawweight Champion, Joanna, who has also competed in the flyweight division, with one submission finish and four knockout finishes under her belt out of her eight year UFC record. She has not fought since the first time these two met in the Octagon at UFC 248: Adesanya vs Romero in March of 2020, where she was defeated via a Split Decision loss.

For all the results, reactions and much more detail on the main card, and plenty of tidbits about all the prelims, be sure to hit play on the show to hear what our fight experts, Mookie and Eddie, have to say!
