Jamahal Hill seeks Alex Pereira rematch amid Khalil Rountree bout at 303: “It’s not even about the gold strap” 

Jamahal Hill became the undisputed light heavyweight champion by defeating Glover Teixeira at UFC 283. However, he suffered a gruesome Achilles tendon injury, which forced him to loosen the belt. Upon returning from injury, Hill faced Alex Pereira at UFC 300, but ‘Poatan’ made quick work of Hill to successfully defend his title. 

Although Alex Pereira knocked out Jamahal Hill fair and square, Hill wants a rematch against Pereira to settle unfinished business. He has been a formidable presence in the octagon since his entry into the UFC in 2021. In only 13 UFC fights, he has become a two-division champion. Jamahal ‘Sweet Dreams’ Hill suffered defeat at the hands of Alex ‘Poatan’ Pereira, but he still seeks revenge, even if the UFC light heavyweight title is not on the line.

“Honestly for me, now it’s not even about the gold strap, it’s about getting back to that fight. I wanna fight with Alex again, just because of the narrative surrounding it. I know what I was feeling in there, and I know what type of timing it’s really on whenever we step in there again. I don’t care, all I know is that Jamahal ‘Sweet Dreams’ Hill is in his future,” said Jamahal Hill.

Jamahal Hill’s record in the UFC is quite impressive, but still, it might not be enough to register a win over Alex Pereira. The only person to defeat Alex Pereira is Israel Adesanya, but still, it took him four tires to get the better of ‘Poatan’. Besides that, Jamahal Hill should focus on his upcoming bout against Khalil Rountree at UFC 303. 

Jamahal Hill vs. Khalili Rountree at UFC 303 confirmed

Jamahal Hill will face Khalili Rountree in the co-main event at UFC 303. This is going to be a very successful event, as it marks the return of the notorious Conor McGregor. Conor McGregor will face Michael Chandler in the main event. 

Khalil Rountree is on the rise, as the 34-year-old is coming in at UFC 303 with a brilliant five-match win streak. Hill must focus all his energy on defeating Rountree, because if he is unable to do so, he might never fulfill his wish to fight Alex Pereira once again. 

Jamahal Hill will get the opportunity to make his case with a statement win over Khali Rountree at UFC 303. However, if Hill suffers a second consecutive loss, a rematch against Alex Pereira will become a very far-fetched dream.
