The cfu returns to Singapore tonight for a stacked card that will be topped with two title fights after a rematch of one of the most scintillating clashes in mixed martial arts history.

In the main event of UFC 275challenges Jiri Prochazka Glover Teixeira for the light heavyweight title, which Teixeira (33-7) won late last year to become the second oldest champion in UFC history. The 42-year-old Brazilian submitted Jan Blachowicz to claim the belt, what a challenger Prochazka (28-3-1) will be looking to pick up from the jiu-jitsu specialist tonight in just the third fight of the Czech’s UFC run.

In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko (22-3) is poised to continue her dominance atop the flyweight division as she defends her title against Taila Santos (19-1), who is a significant underdog here despite his strong record. This fight follows a rematch between former strawweight champions Joanna Jedrzejczyk (16-4) and Zhang Weill (21-3), who faced off in one of the greatest women’s fights of all time in 2020. Zhang made a split decision on that occasion to retain the belt – which she has since lost – but the two female fighters were deemed winners by fans after producing a contest that became one of the best the sport has ever seen.

Allen vs. Malkoun – Round 1

Allen slips out of position and gets up. He then launches Malkoun magnificently and immediately lands on his mount!

Malkoun does well and grabs a leg as he gets up. Allen briefly searches for a guillotine choke and drags Malkoun to the mat with him.

Allen is however able to escape.

Allen vs. Malkoun – Round 1

Hard outside kick by Allen, the bigger fighter.

He narrowly misses with an overhand right and eats a left hook on Malkoun’s counter!

Solid jab from Malkoun too. A short left hook lands for Allen, who then becomes overzealous and misses while rushing.

Malkoun times a one-legged takedown and knocks Allen against the fence. A decent defense from Allen, before he hit the canvas.

Allen is soon back on his feet but then trips! Malkoun takes the back.

Kang vs. Danaa – Round 3

Bantamweights throw jabs at the same time; Kang is faster and more accurate.

A fierce kick from him too. The South Korean lands a low kick then raises his guard to prevent Danaa’s punches.

Again, Kang’s jab is sharper than the Mongol’s. Kang really came on as this fight progressed.

He lands a clubbed right hook to the head of a crouching Danaa, who grows increasingly desperate.

Danaa has had swelling on the right side of her face since the start of the fight, and is now badly bruised on the other side as well.

Danaa opts for a knee jump long after the final buzzer!

Kang vs. Danaa – Round 2

Kang checks for an inside kick. He lands an outside low kick himself, then finds the target with a pinpoint kick!

This briefly stuns Danaa, but Kang misses with a follow-up flying knee.

Danaa lands a front kick to Kang’s chest. Now he hits the body, before missing with a right hook as Kang rolls under the strike.

Kang goes for a body lock, but Danaa is able to break free and deny her opponent the takedown.

Another laser punch connects for Kang, but Danaa retaliates with a neat combination of punches. Again, Danaa fends off a body lock takedown attempt and he retaliates with a knee to Kang.

Kang seemed to be on the ground at the time of this knee strike… If he was, then it was an illegal strike from Danaa. But the referee rejects Kang’s appeal…

The bantamweights exchange leg kicks. Lots of circles from Danaa as Kang fights on the front foot.

Danaa starts putting together punch combinations to fend off her opponent.

A heavy jab connects to the ribs for Danaa, who then catches Kang’s attention upstairs with a right hand.

Now another – an overhand right! Danaa kicks low. He stays light on his feet, then knocks Kang’s head off with a stiff kick!

Danaa hurt Kang late in that first round, but Kang is able to get to the buzzer despite taking a knee to the head while crouching against the fence!
