The “UFC 283Countdown” video shows the highlights of Saturday’s fights at Jeunesse Arena, Rio de Janeiro. This marks the UFC’s first show in Brazil since the outbreak of COVID-19 in 2020.
In the main event, Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill fight to make the most of a chaotic light heavyweight title situation, with the title remaining without an owner following an injury to champion Jiri Prochazka and a vacant title bout between Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev ending in a draw. Teixeira seeks his second UFC title reign, while Hill looks to become an unlikely champion after making his pro debut in 2017.
The co-main event sees flyweight rivals Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno squaring off for a fourth time. Figueiredo enters Saturday as the champion as he looks to settle the score once and for all in the UFC’s first-ever tetralogy.
Also featured in UFC 283 Countdown is a key welterweight contest between one-time title challenger Gilbert Burns and the man with the most wins in the history of the UFC’s 170-pound division, Neil Magny.
