UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Walker was an exciting card headlined by a light heavyweight bout between Thiago Santos and Johnny Walker. The event witnessed some spectacular finishes across the prelims and the main card.

Thiago Santos rode a spectacular four-fight win streak before dropping a title shot against Jon Jones at UFC 239. While Santos gave Jones one of the most challenging fights of his career, 'Marreta' suffered multiple injuries during the bout. Santos faced Johnny Walker off a three-fight skid, including a unanimous decision loss against Alexander Rakic in his last outing.

Johnny Walker became a light-heavyweight prospect with knockout wins over Khalil Rountree, Justin Ledet, and Misha Cirkunov. Walker then suffered a fall from grace after losing two fights in a row but bounced back with a stunning knockout win over Ryan Spann.

The co-main event of UFC Fight Night: Santos vs. Walked featured a middleweight clash between Kevin Holland and Kyle Daukas. Holland's hype train derailed earlier this year as Derek Brunson and Marvin Vettori outwrestled him for five rounds each. However, Holland will be a big step up in competition for Daukas, who is currently 1-2 in the UFC.
