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!

Oliveira is a flashy fighter and showed it off early with spinning attacks in bunches. However, Marcos was surprisingly calm in his first UFC fight and was able to defend almost everything Oliveira launched his way while scoring big shots to the body. Oliveira eventually tired and it allowed Marcos to really unload with his strikes and score the biggest finish of his career.

Check out the final moments below courtesy of UFC/ESPN:

Marcos, 29, is now 14-0 in his professional career with eight of those wins coming by way of knockout. This was a great introduction into the UFC’s stacked bantamweight division, but the Peruvian fighter will need to show more wrinkles to his game before we get too excited.
