Two titles and an exciting women’s strawweight rematch are the featured bouts of this Saturday night’s UFC 275 fight card in Singapore.
The fight card is a PPV event and that means it will air exclusively on
In the UFC 275 main event, Glover Teixeira will defend the UFC Light Heavyweight Championship in a five-round fight against Jiri Prochazka. The co-main event fight between Valentina Shevchenko and Taila Santos is for the women’s flyweight title at UFC 275. The highly-anticipated rematch between Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk will also feature on the main card.
There’s a lot more to the UFC 275 fight card than just the aforementioned fights, however. UFC President Dana White took to Twitter in his usual “If you don’t know, now you know” series to discuss two under-the-radar fights that should be awesome this weekend.
Andre Fialho vs. Jake Matthews
“Fialho debuted against Michel Pereira in January, turns right around, and fights Miguel Baeza in April, earning ‘Performance of the Night’ with a first-round knockout. Then, in May, he knocks out Cameron VanCamp and grabs another ‘Performance of the Night’ bonus then comes back into my room and tells me he wants to fight a month later in Singapore.
“Now, this Saturday, he’s up against veteran Jake Matthews, a guy who is a legit submission threat. Can Jake be the first guy to stop Fialho with a sub or will Fialho get another knockout, hit me up and ask me to fight again next month?”
Rogerio Bontorin vs. Manel Kape
“Another fight you might not know about… The long-time top contender Rogerio Bontorin looks to bounce back against the always-exciting Manel Kape. Rogerio is coming off a close split decision loss to #5 rank Brandon Royval. Rogerio has a ton of finishes with 14 of his 16 coming by knockout or submission. Rogerio will be facing Manel Kape, a former RIZIN champ.
“Kape is finally feeling at home here and is looking for his third knockout win in a row to establish himself as a future contender and has 16 of his 17 wins by finish. Neither one of these guys tend to leave it to the judges and this should be a very fun fight.”
