Ranked light heavyweights Johnny Walker and Jamahal Hill are expected to meet at UFC’s February 19th “Fight Night” card, per a report from Guilherme Cruz of MMA Fighting.
The matchup is scheduled to join an event that doesn’t have a confirmed location at the moment. However, reports suggest the show will land in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
Walker took a loss in his last fight, dropping a unanimous decision to Thiago Santos. The fight was his first UFC main event appearance and moved his record to three losses within his last five bouts.
Walker is best known for flashy victories, having won three of his UFC fights in the first round.
Hill bounced back from his sole pro loss in December, stopping Jimmy Crute within a minute with strikes. Earlier in the year, he was defeated by Paul Craig due to a gruesome arm injury.
