UFC 283 marks the promotion’s first visit to Brazil in two years and first pay-per-view in the country since UFC 237 in May 2019. Unusual circumstances at the end of 2022 led to a main event booked on six weeks’ notice, complimenting an extraordinary rivalry entering its fourth consecutive year of competition.
Glover Teixeira vs. Jamahal Hill was abruptly booked for the vacant UFC light heavyweight championship moments after the conclusion of UFC 282. Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev fought to a split draw on Dec. 10, leaving the title relinquished weeks earlier by Jiri Prochazka unclaimed. UFC president Dana White — bored with the action in the Blachowicz vs. Ankalaev fight — turned around and announced Teixeira vs. Hill that same night. Teixeira returns after a come-from-behind loss to Prochazka in a Fight of the Year frontrunner while Hill has racked up three consecutive wins via stoppage and ranks No. 7 in the division.

The co-main event features a historic fourth fight between men’s flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and interim champion Brandon Moreno. The two are tied 1-1-1 in their series. Figueiredo has only fought Moreno, once each calendar year, since the start of their rivalry. The two fought to a draw in December 2020, Moreno won via third-round submission in June 2021 and Figueiredo earned the title back via unanimous decision in a January 2022 Fight of the Year candidate. Moreno took a brief detour from his legendary rival and defeated Kai Kara-France for the interim title this past July.
The rest of the UFC 283 card is littered with names familiar to fans. Former UFC welterweight title challenger Gilbert Burns fights record-setting winner Neil Magny, former UFC women’s strawweight champion Jessica Andrade takes on Lauren Murphy up a division and the icon Mauricio “Shogun” Rua is expected to engage in one last war before retiring.
