Destroys Klidson Abreu
Light HeavyweightUFC
May 30, 2020
Hill defeated Klidson Abreu via TKO (punches) at 1:51 of Round 1 at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Las Vegas.
ANALYSIS
Well, that was impressive. Armed with a massive edge in the stand-up game, Hill went ahead and picked apart a helpless Abreu on the feet. He used his height and reach edge to perfection and knew exactly when to pick his spots without being overly aggressive. A win over Abreu doesn't mean a lot over the long haul, but this was a flawless performance from Hill. The 29-year-old Michigan native and product of Dana White's Contender Series looks like a legitimate, much-needed prospect at 205 pounds.
Confirmed date of May 30 for bout

May 22, 2020
Hill will take on Klidson Abreu in a light heavyweight fight on May 30, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
ANALYSIS
Hill and Abreu were initially expected to duke it out on a May 23 card when it was being targeted earlier in the month, but it appears the date has been pushed back an additional week and could take place in Las Vegas if the Nevada Athletic Commission allows it. Hill earned a unanimous decision victory over Darko Stosic in his January UFC debut and carries a massive five-inch reach advantage and four-inch height advantage into the Octagon. He will presumably use that advantage to lands a number of strikes and will look to keep the fight upright and at a distance. The undefeated prospect managed to land 101 strikes in his debut fight, but was taken down six times. Hill opened as roughly a (-135) betting favorite following the announcement of the bout.
