Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jiří Procházka shared his expectations for the upcoming vacant title fight between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill on January 21 at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro.
Teixeira vs. Hill is a good fight. I'm not sure if Hill deserves the opportunity to fight for the title. But it's great for Glover because he'll fight in Rio, at home. I don't want to make any predictions about this fight. Let the best fighter win. I'll be ready to fight the winner.

Teixeira had his last fight against Procházka this past June at UFC 275. In that fight, Glover was defeated by a choke in the fifth round. He has 33 wins and eight losses under his belt.
Hill last appeared in the Octagon against Thiago Santos of Brazil at UFC on ESPN 40 in August of this year. The fight, which was stopped in the fourth round, ended in favor of Jamahal by TKO. He has 11 wins and one loss.
