The MMA Vivisection – UFC Vegas 48: Johnny Walker vs. Jamahal Hill picks, odds and analysis
The UFC’s return to the Apex facilities this week took a serious hit with the loss of the main event between Rafael Fiziev and Rafael dos Anjos. In their place, light heavyweight prospect Jamahal Hill takes the next step to contender status against wild man Johnny Walker. There’s also a middleweight bout between Joaquin Buckley and Abdul Razak Alhassan that promises some violence, but that’s about it.
