Jamahal Hill: “I Will dominate Alex Periera!”

Jamahal Hill is open to facing Alex Pereira if the Brazilian decides to move up to light heavyweight.

After Hill became the UFC’s light heavyweight champion, Pereira hinted at moving up to face the newly crowned champion. He thought he would have success at 205lbs but of course, he is tabbed to headline UFC 287 in his first title defense as he rematches Israel Adesanya.

Yet, with the status of Jiri Prochazka still uncertain, Hill says he welcomes Pereira trying to move up to fight him.

“Come on in, come on in, come on in, bro. I’m here for everybody. Just put a dish on the plate so I could eat,” Hill said to Inside Fighting.

Hill was quick to respond when asked how he thinks the conflict between him and Pereira will play out.

“A dominant victory for me, dominant. I don’t care what nobody says, dominant, you know what I said, dominant. I will dominate him,” Hill added.

Alex Pereira will surely need to defeat Adesanya on Saturday night in order to advance to face Jamahal Hill. But if he does, it will be a tremendous and exciting fight.

Hill, on the other hand, believes he'd like to meet Jiri Prochazka next. He claims he has heard Prochazka will be returning sooner than planned and would love to fight him before facing Pereira.
