Las Vegas, NV – In the UFC a losing streak is a countdown to possibly losing your roster spot in the biggest promotion in MMA. For UFC light heavyweight Johnny Walker his main event slot at UFC Vegas 48 is the biggest fight of his career so far.
Waker (18-6) has won only one of his last four bouts after putting on three finishing performances early in his UFC career. He takes on Jamahal Hill on Saturday night.
“Every fight you don’t lose. You win or learn, right? I learned a lot, was a good experience. I fought five rounds. I understand more my body I know I can push I know how much I can do. It was really good I’m really happy. Not really happy with the result but I’m happy with the experience. It’s good,” Walker told the media on Wednesday.
After fighting three times in 2019, twice in 2020 and only once in 2021 Walker is primed to make a big impact in 2022.
“I’m starting earlier thank you God. I want to fight four, five times this year as much as I can. I don’t want to get injured. If I don’t get injured I can fight as much as I can I don’t mind. I like to fight. The worst part is the training. Every day. If I can fight more it’s going to be glad. So glad to fight. I want to fight more often.”
Hill (9-1) is coming off a knockout win over Jimmy Crute in December 2021 and presents a dangerous opponent for Walker.
“Everybody in the top 10 has bro have knockout power, have knowledge enough to hurt you, to knock you out. He’s a good fighter. I just have to get ready and have fun.”
