The UFC 283 Weigh Ins are all accounted for and the event is ready to go live Saturday, January 21,2023 live from the Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro Brazil.
The fights are headlined by a title fight for the vacated, light heavyweight championship. The belt has been plagued with difficulties since Jiri Prochazka released the title due to an injury, which he didn’t want holding up the division.
Glover Teixeira #2 will take on Jamahal Hill #7 in what promises to be a great matchup in the division. Glover Teixeira has already made it to the mountain top in his division and did so as the second oldest UFC fighter in history, behind Randy Couture. Age doesn’t appear to be slowing this phenom down however, and he’ll look to prove it once again this Saturday.
Jamahal Hill #7 has been on a run in the division, having lost only to Paul Craig once in his last 7 fights. Jamahal Hill is expected to keep this fight at range and utilize his superior striking skills. Teixeira will likely look to use his wrestling, bjj and dirty boxing to nullify this younger fighters striking.
Also on fight card, is the flyweight title matchup, for the forth time, flyweight champ Deiveson Figueiredo will attempt to unify the flyweight title against interim title holder Brandon Moreno. Both fighters hold a win over the other and with one of the three ending in a drawl, questions remain unanswered. This Saturday these two will put doubters to bed and find out who is the most dominant flyweight in the UFC.
Other fights to take note of on this card are Jessica Andrade vs Lauren Murphy, featured on our top 10 female UFC fighters article. Paul Craig vs Johnny Walker is interesting as Paul Craig may match up well to Jamahal Hill considering their last fight, which Craig won. Gilbert Burns is back to take on crafty veteran Neil Magny. Finally, Shogun Rua has his final fight against Ihor Potieria in honor of an amazing fighting career. Here are the remaining UFC 283 weigh ins.
