The most entertaining MMA promotion in the world travels to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for another lovely UFC fight card this weekend. The upcoming UFC 283 pay-per-view fight card is headlined by the 205-pound title fight combat between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal, while the co-main event brings the fourth fight between Brandon Moreno and Deiveson Figueiredo, where “Figgy” defends the 125-pound strap.
Magomed Ankalaev fought Jan Blachowicz to a draw, so Dana White instantly gave Teixeira and Hill a shot. This might be the last chance for Glover to wrap the belt around his waist, so this UFC fight card is to be or not to be for the Brazilian BJJ expert!
