The UFC Fight Night between Thiago Santos and Jamahal Hill is on the way, and they are to face each other in the main event of UFC Fight Night at the UFC APEX in Las Vegas. This is a fight that has everyone undecided about who will win.
They both need the win to climb the ladder
Ranked in the top ten of the company’s light heavyweight rankings, they both know that a win will put them close to a world title fight, hence the importance of coming out with the victory.
Thiago 206 and Hill 205
Both arrived this Friday at the weigh-in ceremony and had no problems declaring themselves ready for Saturday’s event: Thiago Santos weighed in at 206 pounds, while Hill weighed in at 205, both in condition to fight.
