UFC 275 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 275 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 275 (on June 11, 2022) is a pay per view card that features two title fights and a potential barnburner between two former women strawweight champions. The main event features a title defense from the 42 year old Glover Teixeira as he looks to stop the surging Jiri Prochazka from taking his title. Glover will surely look to grapple against the dangerous striker Prochazka. In the second title fight, flyweight queen Valentina Shevchenko attempts to defend her crown once again and extend her win streak to 10 against Taila Santos. The main card also features a rematch between Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Weili Zhang. Both women look to secure a title shot against current champion Carla Esparza.

Odds: The champion Teixeira is an underdog at +170 on BetUS

Update: Jiri Prochazka staged an amazing last minute comeback as he secured a rear naked choke near the buzzer against Glover Teixeira. Shevchenko narrowly defended her title against Santos in a controversial split decision. Zhang knocked out Jedrzejczyk with a highlight reel spinning back fist and puts herself as #1 challenger. Performance of the Night Bonuses went to Jake Matthews, Silvana Gomez Juarez, Maheshate, Weili, Jack Della Maddalena. Glover/Jiri also got $50k for Fight of the Night. Shevchenko ($30k), Jiri ($20k), and Weili ($10k) took home the Crypto.com Fan Bonuses.
