With his unanimous decision win at Jeunesse Arena in Rio de Janeiro, Hill (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC) became the first fighter signed to the UFC from Dana White’s Contender Series to claim a championship belt in the octagon, possibly ushering in a new era in the sport.

Our “Spinning Back Clique” panel of Nolan King, Brian “Goze” Garcia and Mike Bohn answered those questions and more with host “Gorgeous” George Garcia. You can watch their discussion in the video above. And don’t miss this week’s full episode below.
