Singapore- Michael Bisping

Seems like UFC Hall of Famer Michael Bisping is already a fan of Singapore even though it’s just his first time in the Asian country. Bisping is in Singapore to commentate for UFC 275 fight card. UFC 275 is the first numbered UFC PPV event to be hosted by an Asian country. UFC 275 is headlined by a light-heavyweight title fight between the champion Glover Teixeira and the challenger Jiri Prochazka. Teixeira is the oldest first-time UFC champion in history.

Other fights are a rematch between former UFC women’s strawweight champions Joanna Jedrzejczyk and Zhang Weili, a flyweight battle between Manel Kape and Rogerio Bontorin and a welterweight scrap with Jack Della Maddalena and Ramazan Emeev.
