UFC 283: Live broadcast of the weigh-in Teixeira vs. Hill

The first UFC PPV of 2023 has arrived. And with that comes two title fights.

Rio de Janeiro is our host city this time around, and the promotion is heading to southern Brazil for the first time since March 2020. That event was the first UFC event behind closed doors, and it took place just as the world was beginning to understand the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brazilian fans hope they won’t have to wait three years for the next card to visit their country. They’ll also be hoping that a couple of heroes in Brazil leave the Octagon with their hands up.

The main event is Glover Teixeira taking on Jamahal Hill for the vacant UFC light heavyweight title. The co-star is Deiveson Fguiredo defending his UFC flyweight title against Brandon Moreno (a man he’s fought three times before).

The Shogun Rua Retirement Fight is also available. Fight against Ihor Poteria. Other fun matchups on the undercard include Gilbert Burns vs. Neil Magny, Paul Craig vs. Johnny Walker, and Gregory Rodrigues vs. Brunno Ferreira.

With two title fights on the line, that means four fighters will have to be very careful with the scales. If either of them is just one ounce over the limit, he will lose his chance to be champion.
