UFC 275 results are in and there has never been a better time to be a fight fan! The headline fight was Light-Heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira vs #2 ranked Jiri Prochazka. This fight was what MMA fans tune in for. The back and forth action, and HUGE moments in this fight, were things that don’t come along often. Both fighters are left forever changed. The 5th round rear naked choke submission made Jiri Prochazka the new UFC Light-Heavyweight Champion. Fight of the year candidate.
The co-main event was the UFC #1 Women’s pound for pound champion Valentina Shevchenko defending her Flyweight championship against #4 ranked Women’s Flyweight contender Taila Santos. Santos was very threatening in the first round, controlling much of it while on Shevchenko’s back. The first half of the fight favored the challenger. The split decision went to the reigning champion in an unbelievably close fight.
Also, any unanswered questions were met when the #2 Women’s Strawweight competitor Zhang Weili met, for the second time, Joanna Jedrzejczyk, in an attempt to recapture the fireworks from their first encounter. Zhang Weili controlled the fight early on with some impressive ground control until she put all questions to bed with a second round spinning hammer fist that ended Joanna’s night.
