Tonight’s UFC Vegas 48 event was headlined by a light heavyweight contest featuring Johnny Walker taking on Jamahal Hill.

Walker (18-7 MMA) was hoping to return to the win column this evening in Las Vegas. The Brazilian had last competed in October of 2021, where he suffered a unanimous decision loss to Thiago Santos. That setback was preceded by a knockout victory over Ryan Spann.

Meanwhile, Jamahal Hill (10-1 MMA) had entered tonight’s UFC Vegas 48 main event looking to build off the momentum of his stunning KO victory over Jimmy Crute from back in December. Prior to that finish, ‘Sweet Dreams’ had suffered his first career defeat at the hands of Paul Craig.
