MMA fans are split on how the UFC 283 main event between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill will finish tonight.
Teixeira and Hill will compete for the vacant light heavyweight title in Rio de Janeiro, BR on Saturday. The fight was put together last month shortly after the draw at UFC 282 between Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blachowicz.
Teixeira vs. Hill is a matchup of experience versus potential. Hill, despite being the seventh-ranked light heavyweight contender, has picked up three dominant wins in a row.
Teixeira is looking to re-claim the belt after losing the title to Jiří Procházka at UFC 275. He was supposed to face Procházka in a rematch last month before Procházka withdrew due to an injury.
The UFC‘s first pay-per-view main event has a ton of hype behind it, as Teixeira and Hill look to stake their claim as the 205lb best.
