The American dominated the scorecards during the bout, with all three judges awarding him each of the five rounds.
Despite this domination, Brazilian favourite Teixeira, fighting at home in Rio de Janeiro, had his moments.
And Hill had to fight through some adversity of his own.
Prior to the fifth and final round, cameras captured Hill receiving his final instructions.
While sat down listening, a huge pool of blood leaked down his forehead.
When ESPN tweeted the clip, one fan responded: “What the hell? That’s creepy looking.”
A second wrote: “He must (have) lost 2-3 years of life in this fight.”
And a third joked: “New blade movie looking good.”

Another quipped: “Like the elevator doors in the Shining.”
Others, however, were convinced that the blood wasn’t Hill’s.
One tweeted: “That was Teixeira’s blood.”
A second added: “Most of that was Glovers blood let’s be honest.”
Teixeira, 43, was left battered and bruised after the bout.
He laid his gloves in the centre of the octagon, signalling his retirement.
The popular star had to head straight to hospital after the fight, and was left requiring bandages all over his face.
In his post-fight interview, Hill said: “”Anything is possible, hard work, dedication, accountability.
“Don’t let nobody tell you nothing. Too many people told me I couldn’t do it, that it was impossible.
“I needed to do it in one round. I couldn’t go five. What the f*** you got to say now?”
