UFC 283 has the most stacked fight card taking place this weekend on Jan 21. As with most combat sports, the UFC has also had a longstanding tradition of electrifying walk-outs. Thus, fighters often have to make a big decision on which song they want to walk out to. After all, the songs are meant to get the crowd hyped and help the fighters to get in the right head space before the fight.
For UFC 283, the promotion is making its return to Rio De Janeiro, Brazil at the Jeunesse Arena. Notably, UFC 283 will feature the light heavyweight title bout between Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill as the main event. Following the injury to Jiri Prochazka, Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev fought for the vacant title at UFC 282.

However, with the fight being a snooze-fest, Teixeira and Hill have been given the nod. In the co-main event, flyweight champs Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno will go at it for the fourth time. Additionally, we have Gilbert Burns taking on Neil Magny, with both fighters aiming for the top spot in their division.
Which songs will Glover Teixeira and Jamahal Hill use for their UFC 283 walkouts?
For his fight against Anthony Smith, Glover walked out to the iconic Guns N’ Roses song, ‘Welcome to the Jungle.’ Moreover, he used the same song for his fights against Thiago Santos before switching to ‘Vou Colher Sorrindo’ by Pregador Luo for his bout against Jan at UFC 267. However, he switched back to ‘Welcome to the Jungle’ for his fight against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 275 in Singapore.
As for Jamahal Hill, he is known for mixing up his walkout songs. For his last fight against Thiago Santos, Hill walked out to “Where I’m From” by Jackboy. Prior to that, Hill fought Johnny Walker and walked out to ‘Knife Talk’ by Drake on that occasion. For his fight against Jimmy Crute, Hill walked out to ‘100 Shots’ by Young Dolph.
Which songs will Deiveson Figueiredo and Brandon Moreno use for their walkouts?
For his fight against Moreno at UFC 270, ‘Figgy’ walked out to “Gettin’ Jiggy Wit’ It” by Will Smith. Previously, Deiveson has also walked out to the “Mission: Impossible” theme by Adam Clayton and Larry Mullen against Moreno at UFC 263 and against Alex Perez at UFC 255.
Current interim flyweight champion Brandon Moreno generally tends to walk out to his theme song, ‘El Corrido del Bebe Asesino’ by Ariel Macias. As such, ‘The Assassin Baby’ used the same song for all three fights against Deiveson Figueiredo at UFC 256, UFC 263, and UFC 270. Most recently, he also used it for his walkout at UFC 277 against Kai-Kara France.
Which songs will Gilbert Burns and Neil Magny use for their walkouts?
Making a return to home soil, #5 ranked ‘Durinho’ will most likely walk out to ‘Medley’ by a Brazilian artist called Mc Buchecha. Previously, Burns has used the same song on numerous occasions. Most notably, he walked out to it at UFC 264 when he beat Stephen Thompson.
Previously, for his fight against Geoff Neal in 2021, Neil Magny came out to “No Regrets” by Lecrae featuring Suzy Rock. However, for his bouts against Max Griffin, Shavkat Rakhmonov, and Daniel Rodriguez, Magny has walked out to “Every Chance I Get” by DJ Khaled and will likely continue that trend.
