The UFC returns to PPV this weekend with its latest offer that includes two title matches. The offer is targeted worldwide in Singapore, where the Octagon will arrive in Kallang and include title events in both the light heavyweight and flyweight women. Lightweight king Glover Teixeira will welcome his first challenger to the throne when he battles knockout artist Jiri Prochazka.

Teixeira will make his first defense of the title he won against Jan Blachowicz last October. At 42, Teixeira was the oldest champion in UFC history. Unlike Teixeira’s more than a decade in the UFC before becoming champion, Prochazka wants to win the belt in just the third UFC fight after a pair of explosive knockouts to start his career in the Octagon. Prochazka has won 10 consecutive knockout matches.

In the co-main event, Taila Santos will claim the women’s flyweight championship against the reigning holder Valentina Shevchenko. No one but Amanda Nunes has beaten Shevchenko in the UFC and is unbeaten in her flyweight career. Santos is the seventh woman to challenge Shevchenko since winning the title in December 2018. Santos enters the race riding a winning streak of four races.

In addition, the rematch of all the actions is set for a match with a selected match, when the former women’s straw champions Weili Zhang and Joanna Jedrzejczyk fight on the main card. The two of them arguably had the best women’s fight in UFC history in 2020, easily winning the Fight of the Year awards. Jedrzejczyk has not returned to the Octagon since Zhang lost two games to former title holder Rose Namajunas.

Below is the full match sheet announced with the latest odds from Caesars Sportsbook.
