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!

Teixeira was originally scheduled to fight the winner of Jan Blachowicz vs. Magomed Ankalaev; however, that light heavyweight title fight ended in a split draw at UFC 282 (more on that here) and the strap remains vacant, thanks in part to this devastating injury.

As a result, the promotion booked Teixeira and Hill for the UFC 283 main event where Teixeira (33-8) will attempt to reclaim the crown he lost to Jiri Prochazka last June. Falling to “Denisa” snapped a six-fight winning streak for the ageless Brazilian.

As for Hill (11-1, 1 NC), ranked five spots below Teixeira at No. 6, he captured his third straight victory by smashing Thiago Santos at UFC Vegas 59 last August in Las Vegas. “Sweet Dreams” has just seven fights for UFC compared to 22 for Teixeira.

UFC 283 will also feature the flyweight title fight between Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno, who compete for the fourth (and hopefully final) time. Elsewhere on the card, local hero Gilbert Burns collides with fellow welterweight mainstay Neil Magny.
