Walker vs Hill Notes
Walker competed in his first-ever main event in early October of last year. He lost that bout via unanimous decision to former title challenger Thiago Santos. He hopes a second time around will be successful.
Hill suffered his first professional loss in June of last year after an injury due to an armbar rendered him unable to defend against a flurry of blows on the floor against Paul Craig. He rebounded, though, with a first-round victory over Jimmy Crute in December.
