Glover Teixeira returns home to Brazil at UFC 283

UFC 283 marks the promotion's first visit to Brazil in two years and first pay-per-view in the country since UFC 237 in May 2019. Unusual circumstances at the end of 2022 led to a main event booked on six weeks' notice, complimenting an extraordinary rivalry entering its fourth consecutive year of competition.

Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill was abruptly booked for the vacant UFC light heavyweight championship moments after the conclusion of UFC 282. Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev fought to a split draw on Dec. 10, leaving the title relinquished weeks earlier by Jiri Prochazka unclaimed. UFC president Dana White -- bored with the action in the Blachowicz vs. Ankalaev fight -- turned around and announced Teixeira vs. Hill that same night.

Teixeira returns after a come-from-behind loss to Prochazka in a Fight of the Year frontrunner while Hill has racked up three consecutive wins via stoppage and ranks No. 7 in the division. The fight between Teixeira and Hill is sure to be an exciting matchup between two of the best fighters in the light heavyweight division.

Teixeira, 43, made his pro debut in 2002. The Brazilian won the UFC light heavyweight title in 2021 against Jan Blachowicz but lost it in June to Jiri Prochazka in a five-round battle. Teixeira will be looking to reclaim the title against Hill and become the first fighter in UFC history to win the light heavyweight title at 43 or older.


Meanwhile, Hill enters the fight on a four-fight winning streak and is looking to make history of his own by becoming the youngest fighter to win the UFC light heavyweight title at just 25 years old.

Both men are aggressive and have a knack for finishing fights. Hill is known for his powerful strikes and is a dangerous finisher. Teixeira is an experienced fighter who has an impressive 33-7-1 record. The fight between these two fighters is sure to be a classic and a must-watch for any UFC fan.

UFC 283 will be an exciting card for the fans and it will be interesting to see who comes out on top in the fight between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill. Who will be crowned the new UFC light heavyweight champion? The answer will be revealed on January 21st when these two fighters.
