UFC 283 Best Bets For Teixeira vs Hill
Hill is known to be a dynamic striker and will be faster than Teixeira but the American has always struggled in the grappling department. He only has one career loss which came by way of Paul Craig, who locked Hill in an armbar in the round and dislocated his shoulder when didn’t tap.
Hill was also taken down by Santos six times in his last fight. While Santos didn’t do anything with those takedowns, Teixeira is an elite grappler with the ability to land strikes and attempt submission from side and top control.
Teixeira should be able to hold his own in striking exchanges, despite his lack of lateral movement. He is a very technical boxer that has the ability to land heavy shots from in the pocket and will be durable enough to withstand any damage.
In a toe-to-toe matchup, Hill is one dimensional compared to Teixeira.
