Jamahal Hill enters his first UFC main event this weekend.
Ahead of his big fight against Johnny Walker, Hill is staying hydrated. Both he and Walker would make weight at the scales on Friday morning. Right after weighing in at 205lbs, Hill would take a drink of water. Let’s just say this sip was no ordinary one.
‘Sweet Dreams’ had the sweet idea of doing a shoey with his water. He’d stay hydrated, drinking out of his shoe right off the scales.
UFC heavyweight Tai Tuivasa would approve, as it is the Aussie’s signature move.
Hours later, Hill and Walker would get into a truly intense face-off.
The light heavyweights were here for the energy, but UFC matchmaker Sean Shelby was not. Shelby was caught in between the two and wouldn’t want them to get too close. He’d separate Hill and Walker, but they’d insist they get closer. Shelby would finally allow them.
“We have all night tomorrow!” Hill said.
“Tomorrow!” Walker replied, clapping.
The main eventers budded heads for a few seconds before Shelby decided enough was enough.
The time for talk is nearly over as they collide in the main event of UFC Vegas 48 on Saturday night.
