Hill and Moreno depart Rio as champions whereas Glover leaves his gloves within the Octagon

UFC 283 had two belts up for grabs in Rio de Janeiro. One went to a former champion, the other to a brand new belt holder.

Jamahal Hill and Glover Teixeira didn’t fight to a tie like previous title contenders at UFC 282, but they did need all five rounds. Hill went into the deep waters with Teixeira and came out with the light heavyweight title and a win over the former champion.

Brandon Moreno didn’t need the title rounds, instead a cut suffered by Deivesion Figuereido from a vicious punch from Moreno prompted the Doctor to end the fight. Moreno exits the rivalry with two crucial wins and the 125lb champion.

Also on the main card were marquee victories from Gilbert Burns and Jessica Andrade, who will fire up potential title fights with their victories in Brazil.

Here’s everything that happened on an exciting fight map set in Rio, as Brett Okamoto, Marc Raimondi and Jeff Wagenheim wrap up all the action.
