UFC 283: ‘Teixeira vs. Hill’ Live Results and Highlights

The Octagon returns to Rio de Janeiro for tonight’s UFC 283 event, a 15-bout fight card headlined by Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill.

Teixeira (33-8 MMA) and Hill (11-1 MMA) will collide for the promotions currently vacant light heavyweight world title.

Glover Teixeira will be returning to action for the first time since losing the 205lbs strap to Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275 in June of 2022. That setback had snapped a six-fight winning streak for the 43-year-old veteran.

Meanwhile, Jamahal Hill will enter UFC 283 sporting a three-fight winning streak, his latest being a TKO victory over Thiago Santos in August of 2022. Prior to that, ‘Sweet Dreams’ was coming off back-to-back knockout victories over Johnny Walker and Jimmy Crute.

Tonight’s event is co-headlined by a flyweight title fight featuring Deiveson Figueiredo taking on Brandon Moreno for a fourth time.

Figueiredo (21-2-1 MMA) has gone 6-1-1 over his past eight fights overall.

Meanwhile, Brandon Moreno (20-6-2 MMA) has gone 6-1-2 over his past nine Octagon appearances.

UFC 283 also features a key welterweight contest as former title challenger Gilbert Burns takes on veteran Neil Magny.
