UFC will hold its first pay-per-view of 2023 this weekend in what will be the promotion’s first trip back to Brazil since March 2020. In the event, former light heavyweight champion Glover Teixeira will have the chance to reclaim his 205lb title on home soil when he takes on first-time challenger Jamahal Hill. The event will take place this Saturday, January 21, at the Jeunesse Arena, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
It will be the second numbered event in a row the UFC light heavyweight title will be on the line. Essentially, Jan Blachowicz or Magomed Ankalaev, who fought in December, should have received the light heavyweight title vacated by Jiří Procházka. However, Dana White made a snap decision when that fight ended in an underwhelming tie. Instead of scheduling a rematch, he let former champion Glover Teixeira and exciting American Jamahal Hill square out for the honors.
In the co-main event, one of the best rivalries in UFC history is set to get another episode as Deiveson Figueiredo, and Brandon Moreno meet for the fourth time with the flyweight championship of the world on the line. Top welterweight contender Gilbert Burns will also return to action when he takes on tricky veteran Neil Magny.

Glover Teixeira will be looking to become a two-time champion in front of a home crowd in Brazil. The veteran got an unlikely shot at the light heavyweight UFC championship in UFC 267 after an impressive 6-match winning streak, and he shocked the world when he submitted Jan Blachowicz in the second round. This made him the oldest first-time UFC champion and the second oldest in history, at 42.
In his title defense, Teixeira faced Jiří Procházka on May 7, 2022, at UFC 274, but he lost the fight and title via a rear-naked choke submission in the fifth round. The rematch was scheduled for UFC 283 in December, but Procházka pulled out due to injury and vacated the title. Teixeira declined to face Ankalaev for the title, with the Russian going on to draw with Blachowicz when their fight for UFC 283 was upgraded to a title fight. Teixeira now has another title shot and is the odds-on favorite in the light heavyweight bout.

Hill is currently on a 3-fight winning streak, having defeated Jimmy Crute, Johnny Walker, and Thiago Santos. His last fight was in August 2022, and he won it via TKO. However, he was surprised when he was given a title shot against Teixeira.

⚠ Free Streaming Precautions
Free sports streaming has been a huge concern among broadcasters and content distributors for many years. This is because, in many cases, these streams are pirated.
Broadcasters have collaborated with ISPs and governments to curb the practice, and the result has been blocking streams, sending copyright notices, and taking legal action.
👉 For these reasons, we highly advise using a reliable VPN if you wish to watch Teixeira vs Hill for free on Firestick. This will help hide your activities and anonymize your connection to make you untraceable.
✋ However, you’ll also need to choose your VPN carefully, as some do not offer good privacy, and others are simply streaming nightmares.
