WATCH: UFC 283 preview with Adam Catterall

The UFC's first numbered card of the year treats us to not one but two title fights, and Adam Catterall runs through the main card at UFC 283.

The co-main event sees flyweight champion Deiveson Figueiredo take on interim champion Brandon Moreno with the pair tied at 1-1 after their trilogy.

The pair drew their first fight with Figueiredo retaining his title, despite being deducted a point, losing the rematch via submission the following year, and outpointing Moreno to reclaim his title.

A devastating body kick from Moreno in his rematch with Kai Kara-France saw him claim the interim title, setting up a fourth fight almost a year to the day since they last met.

Figueiredo is 1/1 to retain his title, with Moreno 4/5 to reclaim.

Then the main event sees the unlikely pairing of Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill fight for the vacant light heavyweight title.

Just over a month ago, Teixeira was set to rematch Jiri Prochazka for the belt before the Pole pulled out through injury and opted to vacate his title. Teixeira declined the replacement of Magomed Ankalaev, meaning Jan Blachowicz stepped in.

The pair fought out a contentious draw, leaving the title vacant, with one of Teixeira and Hill - surely - being crowned champion on Saturday night.

Teixeira is 11/10 to win, while Hill is 8/11.
