And coming face-to-face tonight at the official pre-fight press conference, Hill sported a rather mocking necklace – consisting of a linked chain, and a water bottle attached via lanyard, of an Easter Island stature – which has been consistently utilized as a meme within the community when fans discuss Pereira.

With the stature sporting a swollen lip and bloodied nose, Hill claimed he would leave the Brazilian reminiscing the Easter Island figure come the end of their UFC 300 main event – which the former claimed would motivate him even more to defeat him, during his heralded pre-fight walk out.
