Since his loss to Corey Anderson, Johnny Walker hasn’t had the same approach. He got heavily beaten in the chin when he fought Corey Anderson and that had influenced Walker to be much more tentative. He isn’t approaching the fights as aggressive as he used to.

Hill on the other hand is accurate when it comes to his punches. He will be looking to approach this fight as an aggressor. It will be of no surprise if Jamahal tries to finish this fight as quick as he can.

What’s at stake for Johnny Walker and Jamahal Hill?

If Hill wins this fight, it will create a buzz in the UFC for him. But for Walker, winning alone wouldn’t be enough. Walker is now seen as someone who is good against average fighters and not so good against the reputed ones.

So with Jamahal not being an established fighter yet, winning alone won’t be enough for Walker. He will have to dominate the fight to get the UFC world once again looking at him.
