The UFC takes to Brazil's Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro for UFC 283 this Saturday, 21st January. Top of the bill? The light heavyweight title fight between local boy Glover Teixeira and American Jamahal Hill. US MMA fans can watch a Teixeira vs Hill live stream via the ESPN Plus PPV, while viewers elsewhere can watch on their usual sports streaming services. Read on for a match preview, the full card, start times where you are and more.
This weekend's light heavyweight title bout between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill is actually the second event in a row where the belt has been up for grabs, since Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev's fight ended in a draw at December's UFC 282.
Teixeira will be looking to regain the title after losing it to Jiri Prochazka in June. The hometown favorite is far more experienced than rival Jamahal Hill, and has won six of his last seven fights. But Hill is two inches taller, with a longer reach, and is on a three-fight knockout streak.
There's plenty else on the card to look forward to. One of the fiercest rivalries in UFC history continues with fellow Brazilian Deiveson Figueiredo facing Brandon Moreno for the fourth time. The prize? The flyweight championship of the world.
The main card starts at 10pm ET / 3am GMT exclusively on ESPN+ PPV in the US, with the prelims (8pm ET / 1am GMT) on ESPN 2, and the early prelims (6pm ET / 11pm GMT) on UFC Fight Pass.
UK fans can watch Teixeira vs Hill as part of a regular BT Sport pass (£25/month) and enjoy an instant UFC 283 live stream. Find out how to watch from where you live below.
