Thiago Santos

Thiago Santos will enter the octagon with a neat record of 22-10-0. The Brazilian mixed martial artist has quite a reputation and he looks forward to this victory.

Santos will have a disadvantage in reach and height but he has a 68 percent KO win percentage when compared to Hill’s 60 percent. When it comes to decisions, Santos has a 27 percent and a five percent submission win percentage. This can still be a tough fight for Santos.

Jamahal Hill

Jamahal Hill will come into this fight with a 10-1-0 record and one no contest. He is known as “Sweet Dreams” in the ring and he has been a tough fighter. Hill has been dealing with several issues, especially after he tested positive for marijuana. Hill experienced only one defeat against Paul Craig last year but he was fast to bounce back with success. The major advantage is that Hill knocked out Jimmy Crute and Johnny Walker and he continues to show great power. Hill is up against a veteran fighter and he must focus on this fight. Hill is also strong in knockouts and he is expected to go all the way against Santos.
