UFC 275 News – Media Day Highlights
If you missed the official media day, you can re-watch it here.
You can take a look at the most entertaining moments on this playlist, but we’ll give you a brief recap.
Taila Santos believes she’s going to defeat Shevchenko, but “Bullet” believes that the Brazilian prospect is “hypnotizing herself thinking she can win”. Jiri Prochazka doesn’t think much about the title fight, he praised legendary Georges St-Pierre, while Teixeira “feels no pressure to retire”.
Dana White confirmed the title shot for the winner of Joanna vs Weili 2, so Joanna reacted positively, while Zhang already looks ahead, claiming she’ll “force Esparza into an exciting fight”.
Bontorin’s not looking worried about the upcoming fight versus Manel Kape, while the Portuguese fighter didn’t like Deiveson Figueiredo’s threat to leave the division. Josh Culibao says he’ll take part in “The Fight of the Night” against Seung-Woo Choi, while the Korean Muay Thai expert hopes for a title shot in the future.
Also, don’t miss the media day face-offs here.
Jiri Prochazka and Glover Teixeira have never been known for the wars of words. Probably the most famous trash-talker here is Joanna Jedrzejczyk, but Weili Zhang’s English skills are questionable, so you can’t expect a beef. Taila and Valentina exchanged some barbs but it’s far from, for example, the Usman Vs Covington media showdown.
