Thiago Santos Form


Thiago Santos is on the worst run of form in his career, having lost four of his last five fights.

The 38-year-old Brazilian rode a four-fight win streak to a shot at the light-heavyweight title in July 2019.

He came up short in a five-round battle with Jon Jones, but did become the first man to beat ‘Bones’ on at least one of the judges’ scorecards.

Santos failed to bounce back quickly from that split decision defeat though, losing his next two outings.

He was submitted in the third round by Glover Teixeira before suffering a decision defeat to Aleksandar Rakic.

Santos was able to snap his three-fight losing skid with a decision win over Johnny Walker last December, but in his sole out of 2022 so far he was beaten.

The Brazilian light-heavyweight dropped a decision to Magomed Ankalaev to leave him with a record of 22-10.

Fifteen of his 22 wins have come by KO/TKO, with one coming via submission.

If his 10 career defeats, Santos has lost by KO/TKO three times and via submission on three occasions.

Jamahal Hill Form


Jamahal Hill is looking to register his first three-fight win streak since signing with the UFC.

Hill landed a spot in the UFC with a victory in the Dana White’s Contender Series, and then won his debut by decision.

He scored his first stoppage win in his second outing, but his first-round TKO win over Klidson Abreu was overturned after Hill failed a drug test.

The 31-year-old American bounced back quickly though, stopping Ovince Saint Preux in the second round.

Hill failed to make it back-to-back wins in his next outing though, losing a delayed fight with Paul Craig.

COVID-19 forced him to withdraw from the original fight, but when it did finally take place he was stopped just two minutes into the first round.

He has rebounded well from that setback though, and back-to-back wins have him in the top 10.

Hill took out Jimmy Crute with strikes in just 48 seconds and then knocked out Johnny Walker in less than three minutes.

Those wins improved his record to 10-1, 1 No Contest, with six wins coming by KO/TKO.
