Johnny Walker to Face Jamahal Hill at UFC Event on Feb. 19



A light heavyweight showdown pitting Johnny Walker against Jamahal Hill has been booked for UFC Fight Night on Feb. 19.

MMA Ideas initially brought word of the matchup, and MMAFighting.com later confirmed the date. The UFC Fight Night show takes place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas. The card does not yet have a headliner.

Walker has lost three of his last four Octagon appearances. Most recently, the 29-year-old Brazilian suffered a closely-contested unanimous decision defeat to Thiago Santos in the UFC Fight Night 193 headliner on Oct. 2. The Brazilian Contender Series alum began his promotional tenure with three consecutive first-round finishes prior to his current slump.

Also a former Contender Series competitor, Hill is coming off a 48-second knockout victory against Jimmy Crute at UFC on ESPN 31 on Dec. 4. The Black Lion Jiu-Jitsu representative is 3-1 with one no contest within the Las Vegas-based promotion and has lost just one of his 11 professional appearances overall.
