Boardroom’s UFC 275 Betting Quick-start Guide

Get ready for Teixeira vs. Procházka, Shevchenko vs. Santos, and Zhang vs. Joanna 2 with the latest analysis and odds from our friends at FanDuel Sportsbook.

UFC 275 is stacked with an abundance of high-level fighters that also happen to be fan favorites. At the top of the card is a UFC light heavyweight championship fight between Glover Teixeira and challenger Jiří Procházka, but don’t miss the seventh title defense for UFC flyweight champion Valentina Shevchenko, who takes on a legitimate contender in Taila Santos.

And when fight fans thought that the card couldn’t get better, UFC 275 also showcases one of the most anticipated rematches in UFC history when Weili Zhang takes on Joanna Jędrzejczyk.

There are several routes to take when discussing the most significant storyline on the card. One could go in the direction of Glover undergoing his first title defense as UFC champion at the age of 42. However, the first fight between Jędrzejczyk and Zhang was dubbed the most incredible fight in women’s mixed martial arts history while setting the internet ablaze.

We could very much end up with a title fight that could quickly turn into a “ride off into the sunset” moment with a single strike, a chance for Shevchenko to keep climbing the all-time list of UFC title defenses, and a rematch with the potential to one-up one of the greatest bouts ever — that’s a lot to soak in for one night. With that in mind, before the inevitable thrills and agonies begin to take hold in Singapore, let’s break down all the UFC 275 betting odds via our partners at FanDuel Sportsbook.

UFC 275 at a Glance

The Big Storyline: Yes, there are two title fights at the top of the card, but when Weili Zhang took on Joanna Jędrzejczyk at UFC 248, we witnessed an instant classic of the most incredible variety. Each competitor went toe-to-toe and blow-for-blow in the most unforgettable fight in women’s MMA history, as well as simply one of the greatest overall. Ultimately, Zhang would edge out a narrow split decision with two out of three judges giving her the nod on the scorecards.

Joanna and a vocal group of online supporters believed that the judges made the wrong decision that night. At UFC 275, the former champion will have a chance to settle the score and stamp her ticket toward after title fight.
