Jamahal Hill Stops Jimmy Crute In Devastating Fashion At UFC Vegas 44

The Ultimate Fighting Championship returns to Las Vegas, Nevada once again tonight, December 4, 2021, for UFC on ESPN 31, headlined by former multi-time WEC & UFC featherweight champion Jose Aldo, who faces fellow top ranked bantamweight contender Rob Font in the main event of the evening.

Co-headlining the event is a pair of kickboxing champions in Brad Riddell and Rafael Fiziev, both of which are looking to make it five-straight inside the octagon.

Our feature fight of the night came in the light-heavyweight division between Jimmy Crute and Jamahal Hill.

Both of these young men are straight up prodigies, and both talents are coming off defeats looking to get back on track here tonight.

Official Result: Jamahal Hill def. Jimmy Crute via KO (punches) at :48 of round one

Round 1

Crute opens up with some heavy kicks, but less than a minute into the fight, Hill drops Crute with a check lead right hook. Crute was hurt badly by the punch, but appeared to recover and they were back to striking range.

Hill lands another lead check left hook, and again drops Crute. The fight probably should’ve been stopped right here, as it’s now evident Crute didn’t recover from the initial punch. Nonetheless, a couple punches later and the fight is stopped very quickly into the first.

I became a fan of combat sports when I was 12 years old. I was scrolling through the channels and landed upon Versus, where WEC was televised. Urijah Faber fought Jens Pulver for the second time that night. That's the first fight I ever saw, and I was immediately hooked. So eventually, I began covering the sport in the fourth quarter of 2018, and have since started writing about animals as well.
