Craig (14-4-1 MMA, 6-4-1 UFC) is currently on the most successful win streak of his UFC career. Since starting off his UFC career at 3-4, Craig has gone 3-0-1 in his most recent four outings. He most recently competed at UFC 255 in November, when he finished Mauricio Rua by submission – when the Brazilian native tapped to his punches. Paul ‘Bearjew’ Craig was shooting for a fight with former light-heavyweight title challenger Anthony Smith for his next bout, instead he will be fighting a surging contender.
Hill (8-0 MMA, 2-0 UFC) is perfect since becoming a professional MMA fighter. A Dana White’s Contender Series contract winner, Hill has made easy work of his opponents since being in the UFC. After debuting for the promotion earlier last year. He followed up a unanimous decision win over Darko Stosic with a knockout of Klidson Abreu back in May. However, after testing positive for marijuana metabolites, the win was overturned to a no contest.
