Both Hill and Teixeira said that they were both surprised and grateful to have the chance to fight for UFC 283, which was only six weeks notice for both fighters. The vacant title was at stake at UFC 282 last week, but it was not resolved.

Jan Blachowicz, a former champion, and Magomed Ankalaev, a top contender, fought five rounds of a fast-paced and back-and forth affair that ended in a split draw. UFC president Dana White chose to give Hill and Teixeira the chance to fight in a rematch.

The No. The No. 7-ranked Hill was initially scheduled to face Anthony Smith, the former title challenger. However, that fight was canceled when UFC brass decided to accelerate him in his bid for the vacant title. Smith was temporarily absent from the fight but continued to train Hill for Saturday’s main.

Hill, 31, is a product UFC’s popular recruiting program Dana White’s Contender Series. He was not considered one of the top prospects but he was considered a good prospect. He is now a stoic UFC fighter, going 5-1-1 in seven UFC fights, with four stoppages.
