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.

Longtime play-by-play man Jon Anik leads the cageside charge, alongside color commentary legend Joe Rogan and former UFC two-division champion Daniel Cormier. As usual, “Veteran Voice of the Octagon” Bruce Buffer will handle fighter walkouts while roving reporter Megan Olivi covers pre- and post-fight interviews.

That’s according to MMA Junkie.

In addition, veteran broadcaster Ashley Brewer hosts the post-fight show with former UFC bantamweight champion Dominick Cruz and UFC light heavyweight bruiser Anthony Smith. Boxing icon Teddy Atlas will also be on hand to provide his insight and analysis for all the UFC 282 action this weekend in “Sin City.”

Aside from the light heavyweight championship bout between Blachowicz and Ankalaev, the UFC 282 PPV main card will feature Darren Till and Dricus Du Plessis colliding for a spot in the crowded middleweight title chase, not long after Jared “Flash” Gordon and Paddy “The Baddy” Pimblett hook ‘em up at 155 pounds.
