Jamahal Hill: Age, Height, Weight, Net Worth, Record, Next Fight

Jamahal Hill is one of the top light heavyweights in the UFC and a former world champion.

Hill is in line to face Alex Pereira at UFC 300 in Las Vegas next month in the main event at the T-Mobile Arena where he will attempt to regain his world championship.

Jamahal Hill record

Jamahal Hill's CV shows an impressive MMA record of 12 wins in 14 bouts, with a single loss against his name and one no contest.

Seven wins have come via knockout, with five by judges' decision. His only career defeat also came via knockout.

He debuted in July 2019, defeating Alexander Poppeck by knockout in Las Vegas at DWCS 3.5.

His first UFC bout would come in late January 2020 as he bettered Darko Stosic via unanimous decision in Raleigh, North Carolina as part of the undercard for Curtis Blaydes vs. Junior Dos Santos.

After a no contest on his next start, 'Sweet Dreams' then powered his way to victory against Ovince Saint Preux back in Las Vegas in December 2020.

At UFC 263 the following June, Hill suffered his first and – to date – only loss when he was halted by Paul Craig in Glendale, Arizona.

From the ashes of that loss, he has risen to win four straight, stopping Jimmy Crute, Johnny Walker and Thiago Santos in three appearances from December 2021-August 2022.

Those wins saw him earn a UFC Light Heavyweight title duel with Glover Teixeira as the headliners at UFC 283 in Rio de Janeiro in January 2023 and, there, he became a world champion for the first time by unanimous decision.

Jamahal Hill Next Fight

The now former light heavyweight champion, Hill is gearing up to face Alex Pereira at UFC 300, with the Brazilian having claimed the title that Hill was forced to vacate in July 2023 after he suffered an Achilles tendon rupture.

Pereira won the vacant title at UFC 295 against former champion Jiri Prochazka after Hill was forced to vacate.

Jamahal Hill Last Fight

Hill defeated Glover Teixeira in January 2023 when the Octagon returned to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil for the first time since UFC 239 in May 2019.

Former light heavyweight champion Teixeira went in against surging contender Hill for the vacant title and it was the American that won by unanimous decision (50-44, 50-44, 50-44).

Sweet Dreams was the sharper, more active fighter from the outset of his main event clash, stinging the former champion with clean punches from both stances in the early stages while defending a number of takedown attempts.

Hill wobbled Teixeira with a series of high kicks in the second round, rocked the home favorite with a high kick in the third, and seemed poised to finish the contest as he unloaded on a bloody and fading opponent, However, he was not yet over the line and the Brazilian put Hill down in the final round, forcing him to grapple on the mat to preserve his winning position on points.
