Twitter reacts to Glover Teixeira’s retirement after UFC 283 title loss to Jamahal Hill

The light heavyweight division finally has a new champion after Jamahal Hill defeated Glover Teixeira in Saturday’s UFC 283 main event.

Hill (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) claimed the vacant 205-pound strap when he earned a unanimous decision win over Teixeira (33-9 MMA, 16-7 UFC), who retired from MMA afterward, in the pay-per-view headliner, which took place at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro.

With the triumph, Hill becomes the 18th fighter to hold the light heavyweight belt.

Check below for the top Twitter reactions to Hill’s title victory over Teixeira at UFC 283.
