Puts power on display

Hill defeated Jimmy Crute via KO (punches) at 0:48 of Round 1 at UFC Vegas 44 on Saturday.
ANALYSIS
Crute started the fight with a couple of leg kicks, but Hill immediately counted with a massive right hand that sent Crute spiraling backwards. Hill needed just one more big right hand against a compromised opponent before ending the proceedings with an extra hammerfist. All told, it was an incredible performance from Hill, who gets back in the win column and should be able to turn around relatively quickly after taking little damage here. He'll also take home a $50,000 Performance of the Night bonus for his efforts.

September 6, 2021
Hill will take on Jimmy Crute at a UFC event scheduled for Dec. 4, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Following his 180-day medical suspension after dislocating his elbow in a fight with Paul Craig, Hill will look to bounce back from his first defeat with a win over Jimmy Crute. Before his loss to Craig, Hill was coming off a KO win against Ovince St. Preux. Crute is coming off a six-month medical suspension as well, which is slated to make this fight a comeback match for both fighters.

Hill is coming off a loss against Paul Craig in his most recent bout and suffered a post-fight elbow injury, but he should be ready to go for this event. Prior to that loss against Craig, Hill was coming off a KO win over Ovince St. Preux.

Snaps arm in first career defeat
Light HeavyweightUFC
June 12, 2021
Hill lost to Paul Craig via TKO (punches) at 1:59 of Round 1 at UFC 263 on Saturday in Glendale, Arizona.
ANALYSIS
The official record says that Hill lost via TKO, but the truth of the matter is that he lost because Craig snapped his arm in half. Hill entered this fight with a massive power edge, but that doesn't help if you find yourself rolling around the mat with an ace BJJ specialist like Craig. This should have been over the second Hill suffered the arm injury, but the incompetence of referee Al Guinee allowed it to continue. There's a reason the same half-dozen, well-known refs seem to officiate all the big bouts. The is the first pro loss for the 30-year-old Hill.
Now fighting Paul Craig in June
Light HeavyweightUFC
March 24, 2021
Hill (undisclosed) has been re-booked versus Paul Craig for UFC 263 on June 12, Marcel Dorff of MMADNA reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill had to withdraw from his initially scheduled fight against Craig due to a positive COVID test, but he's now been cleared for a return to the Octagon. He'll look to maintain his undefeated pro record against an opponent who's gone 3-0-1 in his last four fights. Hill sits as a (-280) favorite as of the start of fight week, and oddsmakers don't expect this matchup to see the final bell, as the fight is (-300) to not go the distance.
