Zane Simon & Connor Ruebusch are here with the MMA Vivisection MAIN CARD SHOW, breaking down a set of 5 bouts on this 12-bout UFC 275: 'Teixeira vs. Prochazka' PPV event.
"The Fight Night cards might not be that much to write home about in terms of notable matchups, but UFC 275 looks to deliver a quality PPV offering. In the main event, Glover Teixeira looks to defend his light heavyweight title against surging contender Jiri Prochazka. In the co-main, flyweight champ Valentina Shevchenko hopes to extend her long winning streak against Taila Santos. But, before fans even get to the title bouts, we’re replaying the best fight of 2020—with the rematch of former strawweight queens Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Zhang Weili." - Zane Simon
