UFC 275: Glover Teixeira defends light heavyweight belt against Jiri Prochazka

Glover Teixeira will make the first defence of his light heavyweight title against Jiri Prochazka in Singapore in June.

Texieira (33-7-0), 42, won the belt last October at UFC 267 against his No.2 challenger that is 13 years his junior.
