UFC Vegas 48 suffered a major blow once Rafael Fiziev vs Rafael Dos Anjos was post poned due to visa issues. The slack was picked up by headliners Jamahal Hill and Johnny Walker.
The main event produced one of the coldest finishes of 2022. Hill appeared to have collided with Walker’s forehead with an angry overhand right. Walker was instantly out and proceeded to fall by the fence.

At this point Hill rushed in with another massive ground strike.
Hill was awarded an extra $50,000 for this first-round knockout, earning his second consecutive ‘Performance of the Night’ award.
