UFC 283 Fight Card, Teixeira vs Hill
The UFC 283 fight card, Teixeira vs Hill is announced and it looks like a good night for MMA fans. The card is headlined by Glover Teixeira vs Jamahal Hill for the elusive, vacated, light-heavyweight title, and co-headlined by a unification fight for the flyweight title. It all goes down on Pay Per View Saturday January 21, 2023 from Rio de Janeiro.
The light-heavyweight title was vacated by Jiri Prochazka after he beat Glover Teixeira at UFC 275 in June of 2022. After Jiri Prochazka submitted Teixeira, he was slated to rematch Glover Teixeira to bring back one of the greatest MMA fights of 2022. An injury, sustained at Prochazka’s gym, resulted in a recovery time that left the champion unwilling to hold up the division and he announced he would release his champion status.
After the injury was announced, the UFC reached out to Teixeira for a vacated title fight against Magomed Ankalaev but they could not agree on a date so the UFC pivoted. The next announcement was Jan Blachowicz #2 vs Magomed Ankalaev #3 at UFC 282 for the vacated title. That fight became a drawl and the UFC remained without a crowned light-heavyweight champion. Before the fighters even got a chance to shower, the UFC announced the next light-heavyweight title fight, Teixeira vs Hill.
The co-main event on this features flyweight champion vs interim champion in a fight to unify the flyweight championship. These men are no strangers to each other, as they both have wins over one another going into their forth fight, for the UFC’s first quadrilogy. Hand injuries have taken out Figueiredo leaving Moreno the opportunity to take the interim belt and setup another rematch which will take place at UFC 283.
Below are the remaining matches for this stacked UFC card, which includes fan favorites like Gilbert Burns, Neil Magny and even one of our top 10 female UFC fighters Jessica Andrade.
