UFC 283: Teixeira vs. Hill weigh-in results and video: Both title fights are official

See what happened on the scales ahead of UFC 283!

The UFC’s first PPV (pay-per-view) of 2023 has arrived. And with it come two title fights.

Rio de Janeiro is our host city this time around, with the promotion heading south to Brazil for the first time since March 2020. That event was the UFC’s first event behind closed doors, happening just as the world was beginning to grasp the severity of the COVID-19 pandemic.

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

The UFC 283 main event is Glover Teixeira taking on Jamahal Hill for the vacant UFC light heavyweight title. The co-main is Deiveson Figuiredo defending his UFC flyweight title against Brandon Moreno (a man he’s fought three times prior).

There is also Shogun Rua’s retirement fight on tap. He fights Ihor Poteria. Other fun match-ups on the card include Gilbert Burns vs. Neil Magny, Paul Craig vs. Johnny Walker and Gregory Rodrigues vs. Brunno Ferreira.

With two title fights on tap, that means four fighters will need to be very careful on the scales. If any of them are just an ounce over the limit they will lose their chance at being champion.

You can see how all that drama unfolds below. The live stream starts at 6:45 a.m ET.
