UFC’s 2023 PPV DEBUT! Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) kicks off its New Year pay-per-view (PPV) campaign on Sat., Jan. 21, 2023, with a battle for the vacant Light Heavyweight crown between former champion and No. 2-ranked contender, Glover Teixeira, looking to stop the momentum of surging No. 7-seeded up-and-comer, Jamahal Hill. In the co-main event of UFC 283, which will take place inside Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, one of the greatest rivalries in promotional history resumes as Flyweight kingpin, Deiveson Figueiredo, battles interim belt keeper, Brandon Moreno, for a fourth (and likely final) time.

Silva was making his UFC debut coming off the Contender Series and he looked solid in the early going. He was able to win a few scrambles and even came out firing in the second round to score hard strikes on the feet. However, Brown was too strong with his wrestling and was able to smother Silva on the canvas for the majority of this fight. It allowed “Downtown” to line up his arm-triangle choke in the third round and put the finishing touches on one of his best UFC outings.

Brown, 32, is now 3-1 in his last four trips to the Octagon. The MMA journeyman looked to be fizzling out after starting his UFC career with two-straight losses, but he’s turned it around since then and should earn another few fights in 2023.
