Breaking: Title Fight Announced For UFC 283 In January

The UFC will try once again to crown a new light heavyweight champion.

After the bout between Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev was declared a split draw at UFC 282 Saturday night for the vacant title, a bout has been added to UFC 283 in January.

Former champion Glover Teixeira will meet Jamahal Hill for the belt. The event takes place from Brazil.

Teixeira was scheduled to fight Jiri Prochazka for the title at UFC 282, but Prochazka was forced out due to an injury. He vacated the belt, and Teixeira declined a short notice fight.

Now, he will get his chance in his home country.

UFC 283 takes place January 21 and will also see Deiveson Figueiredo meet Brandon Moreno for the UFC flyweight title.
