UFC 283 Salaries and Payouts

UFC 283 (on January 21, 2023) is a pay per view card featuring two highly anticipated title fights. The main event is a title fight between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill. Jiri Prochazka vacated the title due to injury last November and Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev fought to a controversial draw at UFC 282. The question everyone is asking is just how much gas the former champ Teixeira has left in the tank. After shocking the world by taking the title from Blachowicz, the 43-year old was outgunned in the late rounds by Prochazka. Fans are looking forward to seeing if Teixeira can once again defeat the younger fighter. Hill has won three straight, defeating Jimmy Crute, Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker. The co-main event features a quadrilogy title unification fight between brazilian powerhouse Deiveson Figueiredo and interim champion Brandon Moreno. Its been totally even in the first three fights with a draw and one win for each fighter so this fight will likely settle the score between the flyweights. The main card also features a potential thriller between Johnny Walker and submission specialist Paul Craig.

Update: Pending completion of Saturday’s card.
