Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill fight Saturday in UFC 283 at the Jeunesse Arena. Let’s preview this fight and give out a pick and prediction.
Teixeira is an underdog at +120 while Hill is favored with a price of -140. The over / under is 1.5 rounds.
Last Bout For Both Fighters
Teixeira was submitted in the fifth round at UFC 275 by Jiri Prochazka. The loss snapped a 6-fight winning streak and was the first time he’s ever been submitted. Hill won his third straight fight by producing a fourth round knockout against Thiago Santos at UFC on ESPN 40. The bout earned fight of the night honors.
There’s no fight history between these two fighters.
Randy’s Free Pick
Teixeira at plus money is always worth a look because of his experience and championship attitude. There’s nothing Teixeira hasn’t seen, and he does have a handful of fights where he’s won in the underdog role while many counted him out. However, Hill is the younger, more athletic fighter with the reach advantage and more pop in his hands at this stage of his career. If Hill pushes the pace and lands the crazy high strikes per minute like he has in his career so far, Teixeira could be a bit overwhelmed. The price is reasonable. Give me Hill for his fourth straight victory.
