UFC Vegas 48: Walker vs. Hill predictions

The main event of UFC Vegas 48 is official, with light heavyweights Johnny Walker and Jamahal Hill making weight earlier today.

Kenai Andrews checks in with his thoughts on the main card. But first, a message rom Dana White.

MAIN CARD (7PM ET/4PM PT)

JOAQUIN BUCKLEY (13-4-0) VS. ABDUL RAZAK ALHASSAN (11-4-0)

UFC Vegas 48

Andrews: Buckley needs to be a bit careful when striking, but I think he gets the better of Alhassan after some caution.

Andrews Prediction: Joaquin Buckley via TKO

JIM MILLER (33-16-0, 1NC) VS. NIKOLAS MOTTA (12-3-0)

UFC Vegas 48

 

Andrews: Motta is making his debut, coming from DWCS. Miller is a stiff test for a debut, and I have to give Miller the advantage due to his experience even though he nearly 10 years older.

Andrews Prediction: Jim Miller via submission

PARKER PORTER (11-6-0) VS. ALAN BAUDOT (8-2-0)

UFC Vegas 48

Andrews: Baudot has the size and reach advantage but has yet to record his first octagon victory. Look for Porter to punch above his weight here.

Andrews Prediction: Parker Porter via TKO

KYLE DAUKAUS (10-2-0, 1NC) VS. JAMIE PICKETT (13-6-0)

Andrews: Daukaus has struggled getting the fight to the ground lately. He faces a goos striker in Pickett. I think Pickett gets the decision.

Andrews Prediction: Jamie Pickett via UD

MAIN EVENT

#10 JOHNNY WALKER (18-6-0) VS. #12 JAMAHAL HILL (9-1-0)

Andrews: Hill avoids the wild stuff and knocks out Walker cold!

Andrews Prediction: Jamahal Hill via TKO

Enjoy the fights.
