Thiago Santos and Jamahal Hill clash this Saturday night at the UFC on ESPN 40. This is the headliner of the event set to take place at the UFC APEX facility in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Before Betting on Santos vs. Hill

Thiago Santos is a former light heavyweight challenger who was unrightfully prevented from reaching the throne. The judges awarded Jon Jones a split decision win back at the UFC 239, even though the champion didn’t deserve to win that bout.e

During that event, Santos picked up massive injuries, and his knees were ravaged, which forced him to have several injuries. He never fully recovered from all that, and after the fight with Jones, managed to win just once in four trips to the octagon.

Hill, on the other side, is at the peak of his power and expects a breakthrough in the top five in the near future, which would allow him to attack the title. For the moment, the American is No.10 in the division but is on the rise.

He defeated Jimmy Crute and Johnny Walker in the last two bouts, both with a KO in the first round. So far, he has ten wins and one defeat, with one no contest, and for many, Hill is a prospect that could enter the title fight at some point.

Santos is our pick here, because many underestimated the veteran. He might not be as strong as powerful as before, but he did quite well in the recent events which saw him sharing the octagon against the best guys in the division. On the other side, Hill didn’t meet any such opponents.
