Glover Teixeira Betting Preview

Glover Teixeira is 43 years old and he will have total fan support with this fight taking place in Brazil. Teixeira comes into this fight with a 33-8 record overall and he has won six of his last seven fights. The only loss during that stretch came in his last fight against Jiri Prochazka. It was in the fifth round he was in a bad position and ended up losing by a rear naked choke. He was being outstruck 120-111 but he did have five takedowns in that fight. He is currently averaging 3.80 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.93 significant strikes per minute. He wants to get the fight to the ground and is averaging 2.20 takedowns every 15 minutes and is successful on 37 percent of his takedown attempts. He also stops 60 percent of his takedown attempts. 

Jamahal Hill Betting Preview

On the other side of this matchup is Hill who will be getting his first shot at a title, and he’s going to have to go into hostile territory to get it. Hill comes into this fight with an 11-1 record and he has won three fights in a row. Hill’s last fight came in August of 2022 against Thiago Santos and it was a dominant victory. He was outstriking Santos 89-53 and in the 4th round, he was able to finish the fight by knockout. Each of his last five fights has been finished by knockout. Four have been wins by Hill and the other was him getting knocked out. Hill is averaging 6.46 significant strikes per minute while absorbing 3.51 significant strikes per minute. He wants to keep the fight on the feet and is stopping 65 percent of his opponent's takedown attempts. 

Teixeira vs Hill Prediction

It’s a bit shocking that Teixeira is the underdog in this fight. He is on his home soil and is the more experienced fighter. Like Brandon Moreno, he is trying to get his title back. Hill is a good fighter, but there is no doubt going to be some nerves here. He also struggles when the fight becomes a grappling fight, and I expect he’s going to struggle with the grappling here. Teixeira just needs to avoid the knockout, and he’s going to get that done. Back Teixeira on the money line to cash.
