Late in the bout, it did not appear like the former Tennessee Volunteers football player knew where he was. Moments later, the fight was waved off by referee Jason Herzog, as Hill got his hand raised.

The 29-year-old Hill improved to 8-0-1 with the win. He now has four knockouts in his career.

This was his first knockout since he knocked out Alexander Poppeck in Dana White’s Contender Series by TKO (Punches and Elbows).

Hill picked up a win after his previous fight was overturned to a no contest. He fought against Klidson Abreu at UFC on ESPN 9 on May 30, 2020.

He won the fight over Abreu with a knee to the body. However, Hill got busted for a positive marijuana test.

The 37-year-old OSP is now 25-15 in his MMA career. This is just the third time that he’s been knocked out in a fight.

This was his first knockout loss in over four years. Before Saturday, his last knockout loss came in a fight to Jimi Manuwa at UFC 204 when he lost by a knockout (punches) in the second round on October 8, 2016.

St. Preux is now 3-5 in his last eight fights. Being up in age in the combat sport, it’ll be interesting to see how much longer he competes.
