Jamal Hill wins the title; Glover Teixeira retired

Rio de Janeiro – The UFC 283 The main event catapulted one fighter to the pinnacle of the sport, while another cruised off into the sunset.

Jamhel Hill(12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) defeated Glover Teixeira (33-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC) to win the UFC Light Heavyweight title by unanimous decision (50-44, 50-44, 50-44). The light heavyweight title bout was the main event of UFC 283 at Jeunesse Arena.

Many pundits have asked how Hill will fare when faced with tough Teixeira challenges. The tone was set early on when Hill blocked several of Teixeira’s takedown attempts. The first round was largely contested at a distance with Teixeira’s occasional (failed) attempt to drag her down.

In the second round, the pace picked up with the defense largely down. In a run that wouldn’t have seemed out of place if it went along with his five-round thriller against Jerry Prochazka in June, Teixeira found himself in trouble for Hill’s headbutt.

Hill sensed Teixeira’s instability and landed dozens of punches. Teixeira kept Hill at bay, but absorbed some damage in the process. Somehow, somehow, Teixeira Hill went down and landed a pound and a pound before the round was over.

In the third round, Hill turned up the volume. He pummeled Teixeira with a barrage of punches as the match seemed close to stopped at multiple points. Hill headed again and got the hit but Teixeira hung on hard.

In the tournament rounds, Teixeira was badly injured in both eyes. He absorbed more and more blows as the round progressed – so many, in fact, that there was controversy in the corner about throwing in the towel.

In the end, the angles and the doctors decided to let the fight continue, with Teixeira shouting, ā€œLet’s go, baby. F*cking A.ā€

Teixeira came out aggressively straight into Hill. In the opening minute, Hill was taken down and ended up on the mountain. Hill scrambled and ended up on top – a crucial reversal. With a minute to go, Teixeira escaped to his feet. Over time, Hill avoided unnecessary exchanges on his way to the final bell.

Moments after the title wrapped around Hill’s emotional waist, Teixeira took off his gloves and placed them in the center of the cage – announcing his retirement.

“I’m too tough for my own good,” Teixeira said. ā€œI am very hard on my health,ā€ he explained, explaining why he preferred to turn his attention to training at this point in his life.
