Jamahal Hill Challenges Fans Over Alex Pereira UFC 300 Celebration

Jamahal Hill, after returning from an Achilles injury and losing to Alex Pereira via knockout at UFC 300, criticized Pereira’s celebratory antics and challenged critical fans to face him in the gym, while also preparing for a fight against Carlos Ulberg at UFC 303.

Jamahal Hill won’t forget how UFC 300 ended anytime soon.

Hill returned from a torn Achilles tendon to challenge Alex Pereira for the light heavyweight title in the main event of the historic UFC pay-per-view card. After a somewhat awkward moment with referee Herb Dean, Pereira delivered a brutal knockout in the opening round, and then proceeded with a viral meme celebration.

A little less than two months later, Hill opened up about the finish to the fight, calling out Pereira for the celebration, as well as MMA fans for reacting to it in the way that they did.

“Now I haven’t really spoke on this but I went to Brazil and [dog walked] your guy [Glover Teixeira in one of the most one sided ass [whoopings] in championship history and after showed nothing but respect and paid homage,” Hill wrote on Instagram.

“I’ve never celebrated over an opponent I beat and even called out my fans for disrespecting Johnny Walker after I slept him!! But because I showed competitive fire and was excited to be back after an injury that could of ended my career, y’all think this [was] funny or cool!! [Alex], you really setup a punch you couldn’t get to without a weird confusing moment and did some weak shit, but [it’s] OK because you will fight me again and my eyes won’t leave you until your as stiff as Izzy left you in Miami!

“And y’all remember I’ve lost before in the first round and remember how I responded, this time will be even better.”

Hill is scheduled to face surging contender Carlos Ulberg at UFC 303 on June 29 in the co-main event. “Sweet Dreams” got a lot of negative comments on his post, and before he faces Ulberg later this month, Hill laid out a challenge to any of the fans who had something to say about his post.

“F*ck all that, bro, at the end of the day, bro, y’all can only talk so much shit before somebody starts to say something back,” Hill said on his Instagram Stories. “So for all y’all that’s talking shit about this fight and shit, and y’all want to speak on some fighting shit, we can talk money shit — [$20,000,] pull up to the gym. Anybody, all y’all that’s talking on these posts and all of that shit, and talking this and that, I’ve got [$20,000]. Pull up to the gym, bro. Come get paid. I know y’all broke and need it.”

Hill defeated Teixeira in a dominant decision win at UFC 283 in January 2023 to capture the vacant 205-pound title before suffering his injury during International Fight Week six months later. Hill made a miraculous turnaround to compete at UFC 300, and has a second fight scheduled before the one-year anniversary of his injury.
