Jamahal Hill Unfazed By Layoff, Warns Alex Pereira Ahead Of UFC 300

Jamahal Hill and Alex Pereira

Former UFC light heavyweight champ Jamahal Hill is oozing with confidence ahead of his return to the Octagon against Alex Pereira in UFC 300.

‘Sweet Dreams’ is making a comeback after healing from Achilles tendon injuries last summer, which forced him to vacate his 205-pound belt won by Pereira in a vacant title fight against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295.

In a recent interview with MAIN EVENT, Hill mentioned that he’s not stressed about a lengthy layoff affecting his performance in any way. He feels he’s better than Pereira in every way and he expects to deliver his best performance yet.

“No,” Jamahal Hill said when asked about any concerns about ring rust woes. “I am who I am. I do what I do. Me in the gym is who I am. Me in the cage is who I am. That’s just me being me.  That’s all I know how to be is myself. So, I’m gonna go in and do that, and we’ll see what’s next.

“I’m giving him my full-blown, undivided attention. My team is throwing everything at it. He has all of our undivided attention, and that’s a dangerous place for him to be.”

Hill last fought at UFC 283, where he defeated the legendary Glover Teixeira to win the belt. Pereira was in Teixeira’s corner that night, so the two have a bit of history between them. The fight between the two will headline the blockbuster UFC 300 in April.

Who do you think will win?
