Jimmy Crute

Jimmy ‘The Brute’ Crute has been inconsistent in his matches in the UFC but the potential can be seen with his unpolished skill set. He has been given six fights in the organization and has lost twice. Crute can be remembered as the fighter who earned a UFC contract in Dana White’s contender series and he was an undefeated fighter back then. The first of his career losses came against Misha Cirkunov and the most recent was during UFC 261 as he got knocked out by Anthony Smith. His 12 wins are divided into five knockouts, four submissions, and three decisions.

Jamahal Hill

Jamahal Hill is another fighter that earned a UFC contract during Dana White’s Contender Series way back in July 2019. Since then, he had four fights and it resulted in two wins, one loss, and one no-contest. His two victories came against Darko Stosic and Ovince St. Preux while his only career loss happened during UFC 263 against Paul Craig. Hill could have been in the Top 10 already if he was able to secure a win and he hopes to bounce back as he continues his climb in the rankings. Expect this fighter to win this upcoming match through the stand-up and will avoid Crute’s takedown attempts as much as possible.
