Teixeira vs Hill Odds & Prediction

In a bizarre turn of events, former light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira and American Jamahal Hill will do battle for the light-heavyweight strap at UFC 283. While that seemed far fetched only a few weeks ago, the winner of this bout will walk away with UFC gold.

With 20 of his 33 career wins coming via knockout or submission, the elder statesmen will surely be looking to finish the fight. In this case, against a much younger opponent, expect Teixeira to come out of the gate swinging. His best strategy in the UFC 283 main event is to finish his opponent before the wear and tear of being a 43-year old professional fighter starts to show.

A veteran of Dana White’s Contenders Series, Jamahal Hill will look to continue his meteoric rise in the promotion at UFC 283. Though he’s fought just 12 times in his career, the Michigan native boasts 7 knockout victories. Not to mention, “Sweet Dreams” is one a three-fight has finished three straight fights, with notable wins over Jimmy Crute, Johnny Walker, and Thiago Santos.

The main event of the UFC 283 card is an intriguing match up to bet on. While Teixeira has put together an unbelievable UFC career, it’s tough to see him having enough left in the tank to survive Hill’s lethal striking game.

Ultimately, Teixeira is a grizzled warrior, but look for Hill’s dynamic striking and power to end the UFC 283 main event in the middle rounds.

UFC 283 Main Event Pick: Jamahal Hill to win (-132)

Figueiredo vs Moreno 4 Odds & Prediction

You may have seen this one before. Flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo takes on Brandon Moreno in the co-main event. Each man will look to bring this rivalry to a decisive conclusion at UFC 283.

Incredibly, these men have met in the octagon three times since December 2020. Somehow, their first fight was one of the best scraps of all-time, ultimately ending as an explosive draw. Next, the two men battled in June 2021, where Moreno decisively defeated his opponent by third round submission. Then, just last January, Figueiredo reclaimed his belt with a unanimous-decision victory.

This UFC 283 co-main event is sure to be a barn burner. That being said, Figueiredo has been on the sidelines for a year, while Moreno put on a dominant performance in a win over Kai Kara-Francis last summer. In what should be a coin toss, we’re sticking with the fighter with the cardio and grit to pull out a late victory.

UFC 283 Co-Main Event Pick: Brandon Moreno to win (-113)
