Santos (22-11 MMA), a former light heavyweight title challenger, had entered tonight’s headliner looking to rebound, this after suffering a decision loss to Magomed Ankalaev in his most recent effort back in March. ‘Marreta’ had gone just 1-4 over his past five Octagon appearances overall.

Meanwhile, Jamahal Hill (11-1 MMA) had entered the bout sporting a two-fight winning streak, with both of those victories coming by way of first round knockout. In his most previous appearance back in February, ‘Sweet Dreams’ had scored a highlight reel knockout over Johnny Walker.

Tonight’s UFC Vegas 59 main event proved to be another strong showing for the highly touted Jamahal Hill. Although he had to battle some adversity, ‘Sweet Dreams’ was able to secure a finish over ‘Marreta’ in round four, this after Santos appeared to be mounting a comeback in the third frame. The win marked Hill’s eleventh career victory and fifth under the UFC banner.
