Weili Zhang rematches Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 275
A strawweight rematch has been added to the UFC 275 card. Weili Zhang and Joanna Jędrzejczyk will be running back one of the best women’s fights of all time at the Singapore Indoor Stadium on June 12th.
Zhang (21-3) will be looking to bounce back after successive defeats. Both came in title fights against Rose Namajunas and the most recent was a highly debatable split decision.
Jędrzejczyk (16-4) has not fought since that five rounder with Zhang at UFC 248 in 2020. She lost by split decision but picked up a $100,00 USD bonus for her efforts.
As previously announced the event will feature two title bouts with Glover Teixeira defending his light heavyweight title against Jiří Procházka in the main event. The Brazilian won the title at UFC 267 in Abu Dhabi last year while the Czech was the Rizin 205lbs champion.
In the co-main event Valentina Shevchenko will make her seventh defense of her UFC flyweight title and look to extend her eight-fight win streak. She has been matched with Taila Santos who earned her title shot with four straight wins.
Also on the card former UFC middleweight champion Robert Whittaker takes on Marvin Vettori. Also at middleweight Brendan Allen meets Jacob Malkoun.
Korean veteran Kyung Ho Kang takes on Brazilian Saimon Oliveira in a bantamweight contest. In the strawweight division Silvana Gómez Juárez goes up against. Na Liang.
The event will be a pay per view and looks set to take place in the early hours of Sunday morning in Singapore. The start time is listed as 6am local time.
