In the main event, light heavyweight champion Teixeira will look to defend his title for the first time since defeating former champion Jan Blachowicz back at UFC 267. At 42 years of age, “The Brazilian Pit Bull” has collected victories over the likes of Quinton Jackson, Rashad Evans, Anthony Smith, and Thiago Santos throughout his career. With a 33-7-0 record, Teixeira is riding a 6-fight win streak and will look to continue that streak come June.
Across the octagon from Teixeira will be former RIZIN light heavyweight champion, Prochazka (28-3-1). Currently riding an impressive 12-fight win streak, he has defeated the likes of C.B. Dollaway, Volkan Oezdemir, and Dominick Reyes. He also holds wins over PFL heavyweight champion Bruno Cappelozza and Bellator’s light heavyweight champion Vadim Nemkov.
In the co-main event, Shevchenko (22-3-0) will attempt to make her seventh consecutive title defense. Since becoming the flyweight queen she has run through every contender with ease, having finished the likes of Jessica Eye, Jessica Andrade, and Lauren Murphy.
Santos (19-1-0) will look to derail the champion come UFC 275. On a four-fight win streak, the Brazilian put on impressive performances over Roxanne Modafferi and Gillian Robertson in her last two outings.
Also featured on the card will be a rematch between former strawweight champions Joanna Jedrzejczyk vs. Zhang Weili, and a top 15 flyweight showdown as Manel Kape meets Rogerio Bontorin.
