Glover Teixeira vs Jamahal Hill Prediction
Jamahal Hill is 6-1-1 since joining the UFC in 2019. Hill is the no.7 ranked light heavyweight contender and was supposed to face Anthony Smith in February 2023, has now landed a title shot.
Glover was on a six-fight win streak from 2019 to 2021, with wins over Ion Cuțelaba, Anthony Smith, Thiago Santos, and Jan Blachowicz. The now 43-year-old former champion turned down replacement fighter Magomed Ankalaev and is now gearing up for a fresh opponent in Jamahal Hill.
Hill’s last win was an impressive fourth-round TKO win over Thiago Santos. One key takeaway here for betting on Glover over Hill, is how easily Santos took down Jamahal Hill in that fight. That should be Glover’s path to success here, with a rinse-and-repeat weathering of Hill to win by TKO via ground and pound or grind a decision victory.
Hill’s MMA resume has become more recognizable in the past 3 years, but prior to that 31 year old hasn’t proven himself as championship material yet. Against Paul Craig, Hill showed us that he can be taken by surprise and that was before Craig has a chance to showcase his grappling.
The Jiri fight showed us that Glover still has the gas tank to go a full five rounds. There is certainly an opportunity for Hill to score a late TKO win just like he did over Santos, but Glover is certainly more durable than Santos.
Betting Prediction: Glover Teixeira.
Hill is Excited to Shine at UFC 283
“I got a call from my manager, and he asked me if I wanted to fight Glover in Rio for the belt,” Hill told Ariel Helwani on The MMA Hour. “Easy yes.
“The thing was surprising was how quick they called, but it’s not really that surprising once you think about it, the state of where the division right now. I had a feeling they didn’t want to leave the belt vacant, you’ve got me and [Anthony] Smith scheduled to fight… I figured it was a possibility. I figured I would be next in line just because of the misfortune with the leg injury that happened to Smith. Unfortunately, he still lost that fight, so I figured I would be next.”
