UFC 283 results are in and the new Light-Heavyweight champion is, Jamahal Hill. The event went live on Pay-per-view Saturday January 23, 2022 from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In the main event, for the UFC Light-heavyweight championship, Jamahal Hill had Glover Teixeira frustrated from his take down defense, and his ability to land strikes seemingly at will. It became obvious that Teixeira had a hard night ahead of him. The shots continued to get stuffed by Jamahal Hill and Hill continued to pour on damage from superior striking.
There were a couple of times in the fight, where it appeared that the fight would be finished by Jamahal in as early as the second round. Hills ability to keep the fight standing seriously showed the difference in striking skills between these two. All the judges must’ve agreed with that assessment as they all gave Jamahal Hill the decision with all three judges scoring it 50-44.
At the end of the fight, Glover Teixeira announced his retirement and made note of the honor he gets to share that final retirement night with Mauricio ‘Shogun’ Rua. We thank you both for the amazing fights, inspiration and warrior spirit. Good luck in your futures.
The highly anticipated co-main event saw a unification of the flyweight belt. The fight was competitive until a punch, that possibly ended with a thumb in the eye, caused some major damage. By the third round, the damage to the eye of Figueiredo was too much for the doctor and the fight was concluded. TKO win for the unified flyweight champion Brandon Moreno. Below is Brandon Moreno’s octagon interview, and below that are the remaining UFC 283 results.
