UFC 283: Teixeira vs. Hill weigh-in live stream

The UFC’s first PPV of 2023 is here. And with that comes two title fights.

Rio de Janeiro is our host city this time, and the promotion heads south to Brazil for the first time since March 2020. This event was the UFC’s first behind-closed-doors event and came just as the world was beginning to grasp the gravity of the Covid19 pandemic.

Brazilian fans will hope they don’t have to wait three years for the next map to visit their country. They also hope that a few heroes in Brazil will leave the Octagon with their hands up.

The main event sees Glover Teixeira taking on Jamahal Hill for the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight title. The co-main is Deiveson Figuiredo, who is defending his UFC flyweight title against Brandon Moreno (a man he has previously fought three times).

There’s also Shogun Rua’s retirement fight. He fights against Ihor Poteria. Other fun duels on the map include Gilbert Burns vs. Neil Magny, Paul Craig vs. Johnny Walker, and Gregory Rodrigues vs. Brunno Ferreira.

With two title fights, that means four fighters have to be very careful on the scales. If one of them is even one ounce over the limit, they lose their chance of becoming champion.
