Hill is a light heavyweight contender on the rise, and although he wants what Teixeira has, he has the utmost respect for the new champ.

Hill’s lone loss came in his last outing when he dislocated his arm against Paul Craig at UFC 263 in what was deemed a TKO loss. Hill (8-1 MMA, 2-1 UFC) was caught in a triangle armbar and fought hard to get out, but Craig would not let go. His arm was dislocated and Craig kept raining strikes until the referee intervened and stopped the fight.

Prior to that, “Sweet Dreams” was able to live up to his nickname when he sparked Ovince Saint Preux and he has no doubt that he can stand and trade with anyone in the sport.

UFC on ESPN 31 free fight video: Rob Font puts on masterclass, batters Cody Garbrandt

  UFC on ESPN 31 free fight video: Rob Font puts on masterclass, batters Cody Garbrandt has yet to have a higher-profile fight than the one that currently awaits him at UFC on ESPN 31. But in order to get to Jose Aldo, he needed to knock off another former champion. In his first promotional main event in May, Font (19-4 MMA, 9-3 UFC) was paired up wit h former bantamweight champion Cody#UFC Garbrandt at UFC Fight Night 188. A slight betting favorite across major online sportsbooks (per Best Fight Odds), Font dominated Garbrandt (12-4 MMA, 7-4 UFC) en route to a unanimous decision (50-45, 50-45, 48-47) victory. The performance was methodical and masterful.

“That’s across the board,” Hill told MMA Junkie Radio on being the best boxer. “I’ve seen everybody and it’s just what I do, the work I put in, and the things that I know I’m able to do. There are guys that I’m impressed by, there are guys that I learn from. I’m also willing to adapt, I’m also willing to switch things up, change things up. I can change my game up in many different ways, especially when it comes to throwing hands. There’s never been anybody that I haven’t been able to touch at will and there’s never been anybody that just lit me up. I’ve never been lit up before.”

Hill’s confidence hasn’t wavered after suffering his first career defeat. The 30-year-old is looking to pick up right where he left off when he faces Jimmy Crute (12-2 MMA, 4-2 UFC) at UFC on ESPN 31 on Dec. 4.

  Yes, T.J. Dillashaw cheated, but there's more to his story | Opinion is a cheater. It's a harsh statement, but one that is factual in nature – and one that Dillashaw, himself, won't deny.

The former two-time UFC bantamweight champion used a banned substance to aid his preparation for a title fight, and he was caught. In the simplest of terms, he cheated.

“I think a win here just puts me right back on track,” Hill said. “Right back to where we were before the last result and COVID and everything else that came along with this year. Just get back on track, get back to winning ways and just keep building.”

He continued, “Hopefully me headlining some of these pay-per-views. Bigger bag, bigger check. I’m trying to get up there. I’m just outside the top 10. A win over Jimmy Crute, I’m probably knocking inside the top 10 and just build from there. Everything is going to come, we just gotta stay focused on what we got, what we can control, and that’s winning and dominating.”
