Round 1: Here we go, y’all. Main event time. Johnny Walker, as is customary, gives cutman Rob Monroe a little dance on his way to the octagon. Monroe isn’t really sure what to think right now. Jason Herzog is our third man in the cage. The incomparable Joe Martinez rings the fighters in, they touch ‘em up, and we’re off. Walker paws out his jab to measure distance, then fires off a few quick low kicks. Hill answers with one of his own. Walker spins for a backfist but Hill blocks it. Walker charges forward and clinches Hill along the fence. They release to the center, and Walker stays on his back foot as Hill advances. OH MY LORD! Hill straight SLEEPS him with a right hook!!! Hill follows up and it’s over! Walker is out! My goodness. That was brutal. Right hand to the temple was the shot that did it. Yeesh.
