Jamahal Hill counts money after KO loss to Alex Pereira hits out at critics wait until I fight him again

Off the back of his stunning first round knockout loss to incumbent light heavyweight champion, Alex Pereira at UFC 300 last weekend, former champion, Jamahal Hill has claimed his one-sided loss was far from an “a*s whopping” vowing to rematch the Brazilian in the future.

Hill, a former undisputed light heavyweight titleholder and the first Dana White’s Contender Series product to strike Octagon spoils, headlined UFC 300 over the course of last weekend in his first outing since rupturing his achilles tendon last summer.
