Thiago Santos v Jamahal Hill UFC Fight Night Betting Tips & Predictions
Do not let Thiago Santos’ recent form sway you. He is a very dangerous fighter and if he remains focused he could soon be fighting the top guys of the light heavyweight division yet again.
The former UFC light heavyweight challenger lost a split decision when he took on Jon Jones at UFC 239.
He gained a lot of respect from everyone watching as he continued to the end of the bout despite tearing his left ACL, PCL, MCL and meniscus along with a cracked tibia and partially torn right meniscus.
Some fighters do not sustain that many injuries in their career, never mind one fight. He showed his fighting spirit and hopefully he still has that kind of desire.
Since that defeat and those terrible injuries, Santos has lost three of his last four bouts leading some people to feel his career is virtually over.
Santos needs to win this fight comfortably in order to prove the doubters wrong. His professional record has seen him win 22 of his 32 fights, with 15 of those wins coming by way of knockout.
He goes up against a very hungry Jamahal Hill who has only lost one of his 12 pro bouts. He has won six by knockout and four on points, while one fight ended as a no contest.
His last defeat was against Paul Craig last June, but since then he has won two fights against Jimmy Crute and Johnny Walker and claimed Performance of the Night in both of them.
He is a quality fighter, but he has weaknesses, just like Craig exposed. He will need to stay on his fight and keep his focus if he is to trouble Santos.
Santos has the experience and is seven years older than Hill. Normally, I would be backing the younger fighter, but Santos is desperate and I expect him to claim a knockout win in the third round.
