This weekend, the world's largest premier MMA promotion chief will travel to Singapore, heading to UFC Asia for the first time since 2019. And this is the first pay per view from an Asian country.
UFC 275: take on Saturday, June 11 at the Singapore Indoor Stadium in Singapore. In the main event, Glover Taxira, the reigning World Light Heavyweight Champion, will face top contender Jiri Prochazka.
The event will feature two title fights, including a light heavyweight championship fight between Glover Taxira (c) and Jiri Prochazka, which will serve as the headliner. UFC 275 co-hosts have another battle for the title - Valentina Shevchenko (c) and Taila Santos face off in a fight for the Women's Flyweight Championship
UFC 275: Taxira vs. Prochazka Preview
Glover Taxira (33-7-0)
The Brazilian-born fighter Glover Taxira, due to her intelligence and experienced nature, has allowed him to advance in her professional career, which includes most MMA athletes competing and even at this age.
In Jiu-Jitsu, Brazil, a dedicated background and love for boxing from an early age has cemented the era of a solid mixed martial art that is more than 19 years old. He achieved a lot in which he did

Jiri Prochazka (28-3-1)
Prochazka's martial arts journey began with the training of Muay Thai as a teenager. He eventually became the national world champion in discipline, so the change in MMA in 2012 came as no surprise.
After just two fights in its UFC season, the Czech Republic standout has given itself a chance to win the title and a record number of fight championships.
Prochazka left Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes irresponsible and collected consecutive bonus awards for good measure. While some believe the leap in title controversy is unfair, critics should be reminded that they have already beaten two title challengers in a dominant way.

UFC 275: Taxira vs. Prochazka Predication
The Brazilian has shown impeccable skill in both her boxing and manipulative offenses.
Still, in a battle where I would expect him to avoid the power to end Prochazka's fight, a ground fight would be the most viable game plan for the defending champion.
Taxira will be the most equipped grappler that Prachazka has ever faced. And he may like her chances with a knockout punch.
On the other hand, if you look at Jiri, a background in Muay Thai becomes clear.
Still, moving forward will need to highlight a dangerous defense deficit, especially if he wants to be a successful defending champion.
Jiri uses lots of fantasies, fast work, and a very unconventional style. Reminiscent of Anderson Silva, Stephen Thompson, and even Sean O'Malley, Jiri puts her hands down and fires lightning bolts, hooks and upper cuts from the most bizarre angles.
Overall, Taxira is a tough, skilled champion, but at 42, he could start to slow down at any moment, and that seems like a bad match for him, at least on paper. Prochazka is probably going to be more hungry, he's full of confidence, and he knows he can kill anyone. He will try to keep up the fight, work on her combinations from the outside, and give the veteran the fiercest battle of Muay Thai that he cannot handle.
