Yes, for those who don't remember, the December 2022 UFC card ended in a draw between Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev. This finish kept the light heavyweight championship (just relinquished by Jiri Prochazka) vacant. After that match, UFC president Dana White (who's been getting quite the headlines as of late) announced that Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill would be fighting for the title.

Six weeks later, that match is happening on the shortest of notice. Teixeira's trying to regain the title after he lost it to Prochazka. The No. 7-ranked Hill is on a hot streak, with a trio of wins (a TKO over Thiago Santos, and KOs over Johnny Walker and Jimmy Crute).

The co-main event is the fourth meeting between UFC flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo and interim champion Brandon Moreno. This will be the ultimate tie-breaker, as their record is 1-1-1. That trilogy started with a draw in 2020, then 2021 saw Moreno take a win via submission in the third round in. Figueiredo got his win and regained the title via unanimous decision in January 2022.

And for the odds: Hill is a slight favorite -140 (wager $140 to win $100) over Teixeira (+120 — wager $100 to win $120) according to DraftKings (opens in new tab). Meanwhile, the line numbers increased for the co-main, with Moreno (-130) the favorite over Figueiredo (+110).
