The UFC is back in Brazil for the first time since 2020, with a couple of fun title fights. In the main event of UFC 283, Glover Teixeira is set to take on Jamahal Hill for the still vacant light heavyweight strap. While Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will battle for flyweight gold for the fourth time in the co-main. Throw Gilbert Burns, Jessica Andrade, and Johnny Walker in there and the UFC has a lot of home country talent on display.
