Watch Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill full fight video highlights from the main card of UFC 283 at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In the main event, the vacant light heavyweight championship will be up for grabs between Jamahal Hill and Brazil native Glover Teixeira in the first pay-per-view event of 2023.
Teixeira has a professional record of (33-8) with 18 wins by KO/TKO, 10 wins by submission, and 5 wins by decision. In his last fight, he lost his belt against Jiri Prochazka last time out at UFC 275 in June. He was submitted in Round 5 and has ended up with 4 straight stoppages, winning 2 by submission and 1 by a KO/TKO.
The 43-year-old Teixeira won his first UFC title at age 42, but still looks as athletic and durable as his much younger opponents.
Hill will get his first-ever shot at claiming a title and will enter Saturday night with an (11-1) record after three consecutive wins including an August victory over Thiago Santos in four rounds. Hill’s lone defeat came in June 2021 against grappling specialist Paul Craig.
