UFC returns to PPV this weekend with its latest offering that features a pair of title fights. The promotion heads around the globe to Singapore, where the Octagon will touch down in Kallang and feature title fights in both the light heavyweight and women's flyweight divisions. Light heavyweight king Glover Teixeira will welcome his first challenger to the throne when he battles knockout artist Jiri Prochazka.

Teixeira, 42, will look to continue his amazing career renaissance against the all-action star from the Czech Republic. The Brazilian champion has won six straight fights to reach this point, including a submission of Jan Blachowicz to claim the title last year. Prochazka, meanwhile, will make just his third walk to the Octagon after dispatching of both Volkan Oezdemir and Dominick Reyes with violent TKOs. Prochazka has won 12 straight bouts with his last defeat coming on New Year's Eve 2015.
