UFC 275: Teixeira vs Prochazka Main Card

Main Event: Jiri Prochazka defeats Glover Teixeira via submission (rear naked choke) at 4:32 of the fifth round

In a division that has had its share of classic championship battles, Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira added their own chapter to light heavyweight lore in the main event of UFC 275 in Singapore, with Prochazka seizing the 205-pound crown from Teixeira via fifth-round submission in just his third UFC bout.
 
Prochazka switched stances as the bout began as he looked for openings, but it was the champion who scored early before getting the fight to the mat in the second minute of the fight. On the mat, Teixeira fired off strikes and moved into side control as Prochazka tried to get back to his feet. With a little over two minutes left, the challenger got his wish, but moments later, he was back on the mat, this time with Teixeira in the mount position. The follow-up strikes were thudding, forcing Prochazka to give up his back, but he made it to his feet and fired off a series of ground strikes that were equally damaging before the round ended.

The challenger looked comfortable as round two commenced, and he had success with a variety of striking attacks. In the second minute, a right hand jarred Teixeira and prompted a pair of desperate takedown attempts. Prochazka defended well and kept the assault coming, but out of nowhere, Teixeira put Prochazka down on the mat and now it was the Brazilian’s opportunity to turn on the offense, which he did with a series of elbows that cut Prochazka over the left eye right before the horn sounded.
 
Prochazka defended Teixeira’s first takedown attempt of round three and again had success with his unorthodox striking. Most notably, a short left that jarred the champion. But just when it looked like Prochazka was going to pull away, Teixeira got a takedown two minutes in. This time, Prochazka got back to his feet quickly and landed a hard body shot on his bloodied foe, and moments later he was unloading strikes on the grounded Teixeira. The champion refuse to back down, though, and with under a minute left, it was Teixeira on top and landing the shots.
 
After some back and forth striking from the two 205-pounders to start the fourth, Teixeira took Prochazka down in the second minute and went to work, getting into the mount just before the midway point. Teixeira then looked for an arm triangle choke twice. After Prochazka got free, he got into the top position, but then it was Teixeira getting his opponent’s back briefly before another change in position, leaving Prochazka in control at the horn.
 
A right hand by Teixeira stunned and nearly stopped Prochazka early in the final round, but a subsequent guillotine choke attempt saw the challenger slip out and get his wits back as they grappled on the mat. Once standing, Prochazka fired off shots, but it was Teixeira getting the better of the exchanges, landing another big right midway through the frame before getting another takedown. In the full mount, Teixeira appeared to be in complete control, but it was Prochazka escaping once more, and out of nowhere, he sunk in a rear naked choke that forced a tap out at 4:32 of the fifth round. Wow.
 
With the win, the 29-year-old Prochazka moves to 29-3-1. The 42-year-old Teixeira falls to 33-8. At the time of the stoppage, Teixeira led on two scorecards, 39-37, 38-37, with the third scorecard reading 38-38 heading into the final round. | Official Scorecards

Co-Main Event: Valentina Shevchenko defeats Taila Santos via split decision (48-47, 49-46, 47-48)

UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko was forced to dig deep in her UFC 275 co-main event against Taila Santos, but when the dust settled, she successfully defended her crown for the seventh time, winning a close split decision over the gritty Brazilian challenger.
 
Scores were 48-47, 49-46, 47-48 for Shevchenko, now 23-3. The No.4-ranked Santos falls to 19-2.
 
Shevchenko controlled a good part of the first round in the clinch against the fence, but when the champion tried to take the fight to the mat with under two minutes to go, Santos took her back and looked for a choke. Shevchenko defended well and fired punches at her foe, but it was a solid end to the round for the Brazilian.

Clinching up early in round two, Santos controlled matters in close this time, and in the second minute she got a takedown. Shevchenko stayed busy from her back, throwing strikes while looking for a submission, but Santos wasn’t as busy, prompting a restart from referee Jason Herzog with 90 seconds to go. Moments later, Shevchenko threw Santos to the mat, but Santos scrambled her way into the top position seconds later.
 
Shevchenko did well with her striking early in round three and scored a brief takedown before Santos bulled her into the fence midway through the frame and then hit another takedown. This time she locked in a rear naked choke, and though Shevchenko escaped, her crown was now in trouble.
 
Santos came out for round four with significant swelling around her right eye from an apparent clash of heads in the previous round, and Shevchenko took advantage, scoring with kicks and punches to the side the challenger was having trouble seeing from. Santos did get a big takedown with 20 seconds left, but it was a Shevchenko round with one more to go.
 
Shevchenko rattled Santos with her strikes in the opening minute of round five, but a trip to the mat saw the Brazilian in control briefly before the champion got back to her feet and scored her own takedown midway through the frame. The two battled on the mat, staying busy enough to avoid a restart, and Shevchenko worked hard to improve position, but Santos defended well as they scrapped to the final horn. | Official Scorecards

Zhang Weili defeats Joanna Jedrzejczyk via knockout at 2:28 of the second round

The rematch between former strawweight champions Zhang Weili and Joanna Jedrzejczyk wasn’t as epic as their first bout, but it was just as memorable, with a frantic first round followed by a highlight reel knockout by Zhang in the second and Jedrzejczyk announcing her retirement in the Octagon.

Jedrzejczyk was busy from the start, and she had success, prompting a takedown by Zhang in the second minute. While on the mat, Zhang unloaded with her strikes, and while Jedrzejczyk got back to her feet, she was returned to the mat two more times with similar results, as Zhang’s ground strikes were coming in a fast and furious fashion. With under two minutes left, Zhang got the mount position and the punishment continued, as Jedrzejczyk was simply being overpowered. Finally, Jedrzejczyk found daylight and got back to her feet, picking up where she left off before the takedowns, and when the round ended, the crowd erupted.

Zhang opened the second with hard body kicks that kept Jedrzejczyk at bay for a spell, but the Poland native walked through them, intent on getting her own shots in. Jedrzejczyk defended Zhang’s takedown attempt well, but as she subsequently marched forward, Zhang landed a flush spinning backfist that put her down face first, and referee Marc Goddard halted the bout. The official time was 2:28.
 
The No.2-ranked Zhang moves to 22-3 with the win. The 34-year-old Jedrzejczyk, the second fighter to hold the 115-pound title that she successfully defended five times, retires with a record of 16-5. Zhang defeated Jedrzejczyk via split decision in March 2020. | Official Scorecards

Matthews (18-5) promised to show off his striking game, and for most of the first round he did, sticking and moving while showing off his speed and accuracy. But when Fialho (16-5, 1 NC) drew him into a brawl late in the frame, he had success and went to his corner with momentum on his side.

A left by Matthews in the opening minute of round two took that momentum back as he staggered Fialho, and two more follow-up shots had the same effect on the Portugal native, who never fully recovered, as Matthews kept the heat on until a final blow dropped Fialho, with referee Jason Herzog stopping the bout at 2:24 of the second stanza. | Official Scorecards

Jack Della Maddalena defeats Ramazan Emeev via TKO (strikes) at 2:32 of the first round

In the main card opener, welterweight up and comer Jack Della Maddalena continued to roll, as he halted veteran Ramazan Emeev in a single round.
 
After some solid standup work to start the bout, Emeev took Della Maddalena down and nearly caught his foe in a choke before the Aussie prospect escaped and got back to his feet. Then it was time for Della Maddalena to go to work, and after a perfect left hook to the body, Emeev fell to the mat. A couple follow-up shots came in rapid-fire fashion, and that was it, with referee John Sharp stepping in at 2:32 of round one.
 
With the win, Della Maddalena moves to 12-2. Emeev falls to 20-6. | Official Scorecards

In a meeting of middleweight prospects, Brendan Allen scored a close, but unanimous, decision over Jacob Malkoun.

Scores were 29-28 across the board for Allen, now 19-5. Malkoun falls to 6-2.

Allen was aggressive on the feet as the bout began, and he scored well until he was taken down by Malkoun two minutes in. Allen rose quickly but remained locked up until dragged down again. But once upright, Allen returned the favor with a throw to the mat, and while Malkoun regained control in the grappling sequences, he wasn’t able to do anything with it.

Malkoun’s jabs were effective early in round two, drawing the attention of Allen, and the takedown followed 90 seconds into the frame. Malkoun kept a step ahead of his foe for much of the round, and though Allen escaped into the top position in the final minute, there would be no significant turnaround for the Louisiana product.

In the third, the swarming attack of Malkoun again paid dividends, but in the second half of the stanza, Allen scrambled into the top position and his late control time might have been the deciding factor in the win for “All In.” | Official Scorecards

The second was similar in pace and theme, with Kang’s jab and kicks giving him an early lead until Danaa roared back.

With under two minutes left, a knee by Danaa to the grounded Kang went without a warning from referee Thomas Fann, but Kang shook off the blow and the back-and-forth action continued, with Kang pulling away in the third with a steady stream of jabs to cap off a disciplined and impressive performance. | Official Scorecards

Pascual had a slight edge on the feet in the second, even though Edwards stayed busy. But a late takedown may have secured the frame for Pascual.
