What Makes Thiago Santos Vs Jamahal Hill Fight Card So Special?
Well, the main and co-main event could turn into slugfests, but the clashes between TUF and 30 finalists are going to be very fun to watch. Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena, who rematched at the main event of UFC 277, coached different teams in the Ultimate Fighter 30 season.
Zac Pauga was better than Nyle Bartling and Jordan Heiderman, and now he’s gonna meet Kamaru Usman’s brother, Mohammed, who scored back-to-back decision wins over Mitchell Sipe and Eduardo Perez.
The second half of TUF 30 brings the female scrap between Guamanian fighter Brogan Walker (back-to-back wins over Hannah Guy and Laura Gallardo) and lightning-fast grappler Juliana Miller (she eliminated Claire Guthrie and Kaytlin Neil).
This event brings two nerve-racking questions. The first, who is going to be the best TUF fighter on the roster? The second, how many stoppages are we going to see at this UFC Las Vegas fight card? Terrance McKinney and Michal Oleksiejczuk are “kill or be killed” types of fighters, how much are their bouts going to last? Are we going to see the reprise of McKinney vs Dober, a one-round slugfest that led to the Fight of the Night bonus?
