About UFC 283: Teixeira vs. Hill

This is the first UFC PPV event under the new price of $79.99. For the third year in a row, ESPN recently announced the prices of its UFC PPVs would increase by five more dollars, starting with UFC 283.

In addition to the Teixeira and Hill main event, we’ll also see another fight in the saga of Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno, who fight for the fourth time in 25 months, in a match for the undisputed UFC Flyweight Championship. Also on a UFC card for the final time will be the legendary Mauricio “Shogun” Rua, a longtime MMA veteran who won the 2005 PRIDE Middleweight Grand Prix and is a former UFC Light Heavyweight Champion. Shogun Rua represents some of the golden years of UFC and MMA in general, and he will be missed in the octagon.

While all the prices involved with ESPN+ and UFC have risen, Disney still gives sports fans the opportunity to get more bang for their buck with the Disney bundle. For just $12.99 per month, sports fans can get ESPN+, Disney+, and Hulu. It won’t make the price of the UFC PPVs any lower, but at least we have more to watch while we’re waiting for the next event.
