‘Inspired by both men’

Apr 03, 2023

It was not Brazil's night at UFC 283. After Mauricio Rua not ending his career on a win and Deiveson Figueiredo losing the flyweight belt to Brandon Moreno, it was Glover Teixeira who came up short against Jamahal Hill in a dispute for the vacant light heavyweight belt.

In a brutal show of heart, the Brazilian just suffered too much from his opponent's damage and ended up losing a unanimous decision after five rounds. On Twitter, pro fighters reacted to the battle.

I’m thinking texeira via sub or hill via KO are the 2 most likely scenarios…how y’all feeling about it? #ufc283

@gloverteixeira might be my second favorite fighter behind Moreno. A true legend in the #ufc #ufc283

Glover rolls with punches so well. He still gets hit, but a lot of shots go missed or deflected as well.
