UFC 283: UK start time, how to watch, full card

At UFC 283, Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill will battle it out for the vacant light heavyweight championship, and we have all the details, including the UK start time.

With Jiří Procházka honourably vacating the belt through injury, plus Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev walking away from their contest without a decisive winner, this weekend’s main event fighters have received a massive opportunity.

In 2021, Glover Teixeira became the second-oldest champion in the history of the promotion and in his first defence, he proved why he’s held in such high regard. But despite a valiant effort, he ultimately surrendered the belt to Procházka.

However, with the way the cards have fallen, he now has another opportunity, and he plans to take advantage. But the man who will stand opposite him at UFC 283, is not coming to make up the numbers.

Jamahal Hill has sprung into the title picture off the back of stunning victories over Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker. And now, the dynamic striker is looking to shake up the division with the biggest win of his career. Thus making this an event that fans can’t afford to miss.
