The first numbered UFC event of 2023, which takes place in Rio de Janeiro, has two titles on the line, with flyweight and light heavyweight gold up for grabs on 21st January.
Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill top the bill at Jeunesse Arena with the vacant light heavyweight belt on offer.
Teixeira, 1/1 To Win, previously held the title after beating Jan Blachowicz by submission at UFC 267 in October 2021, however, he lost it when suffering defeat in the same fashion in his first defence against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275.
Prochazka has since vacated the belt after being forced to undergo surgery on a serious shoulder injury but Magomed Ankalaev and Blachowicz fought to a draw when at UFC 282 and, therefore, it remains vacant.
All combinations have played out in the three previous editions, with the pair drawing when they first squared off at UFC 256 as Figueiredo retained his belt before Moreno won the rematch to take the strap at UFC 263.
Figueiredo earned his revenge 12 months ago when he sealed a unanimous decision victory to reclaim his title at UFC 270.
Further down the card, 2/7 Gilbert Burns and 11/4 Neil Magny meet at welterweight and there's also British interest with Scotland's Paul Craig, priced at 6/4 To Win, facing 4/7 Johnny Walker at light heavyweight.
