Jiri Prochazka was nearly finished on several occasions but somehow found a way to rally and submit Glover Teixeira in the final minute to win the light heavyweight title in a Fight of the Year candidate at UFC 275 in Singapore on Saturday night.

Both men almost finished each other at various points in the fight. Prochazka's striking and body punching had the 42-year-old Brazilian in trouble, while Teixeira's grappling and ground game smothered the Czech fighter.

Teixeira was up on two of the three scorecards heading into the fifth round and almost got the finish when he landed a massive combination that had Prochazka out on his feet. But Teixeira made a mistake by going for a guillotine choke; that allowed his opponent to recover. 

Then the unexpected happened. 

Teixeira once again dominated on the ground and went after an arm triangle. Prochazka used the fence to explode off his back, moved to Teixeira's neck and sunk in the choke. An exhausted Teixeira tapped out with 28 seconds left and a new champion was crowned. It was the first time in his MMA career that Teixeira had been submitted. .   

In the co-main event, Valentina Shevchenko escaped with a split decision over Taila Santos to retain her women's lightweight title.

Santos controlled the champion early, surprising Shevchenko with her strength in the clinch and takedowns. But a clash of heads in the third round produced significant swelling on Santos' face and compromised the challenger. 

Shevchenko used her striking and a few takedowns to take the decision. The two scores in her favor were 48-47 and 49-46. The third judge saw the fight 48-47 for Santos.

Weili Zhang scored a stunning second-round knockout of Joanna Jedrzejczyk with a spinning backfist in a rematch of their epic 2020 encounter. Zhang earned another shot at the women's strawweight title with the win. Jedrzejczyk announced her retirement following the loss.
