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.

Don’t miss a single second of EPIC face-punching action!

Hernandez looked tremendous in the early going. The cut down to 145 pounds didn’t seem to change his output too much and he was able to overpower and batter Quarantillo on queue. However, Quarantillo has a legendary gas tank and was not going to go away. Hernandez started to tire in the second frame which allowed Quarantillo to unload heavy punches in bunches and find the comeback stoppage.

Quarantillo, 34, seems to do this every time he’s losing a fight. Hernandez had him on the ropes early on, but Quarantillo was able to rely on his cardio and sheer toughness to regain momentum. This victory gets him back in the featherweight win column and pushes his overall UFC record to 5-2.
