Jamahal Hill makes his first remarks since losing the UFC 300 main event to Alex Pereira

In his first fight since being forced to vacate the UFC light heavyweight championship, Jamahal Hill came up short in his attempt to regain the gold against Alex Pereira in the main event of UFC 300.

Not long after the fight, Jamahal Hill took to his social media to let fight fans know that he was doing fine, congratulating Pereira on the win and promising to come back stronger.

“Oh well. That’s the game we play,” Hill said. “Got caught. For anybody that care, I’m good. I’m well. We’re still doing our thing…

“We just build and come right back.”

Jamahal Hill Says He Is Doing Well After Suffering Loss To Alex Pereira At UFC 300

In what may be considered one of the coldest knockouts in recent memory, Pereira waved off referee Herb Dean’s attempt to step in for a timeout after Hill hit Pereira with a low blow. “Poatan” responded by immediately landing a left hook that dropped “Sweet Dreams”.

Pereira landed some follow-up shots on the grounded former champion before Dean stepped in to declare a first-round TKO.

This marked Hill’s first fight since winning the UFC light heavyweight title at UFC 283 last January, submitting Glover Teixeira and becoming the first Dana White’s Contender Series alumnus to win UFC gold.

He was unable to make a defense of the belt before injury forced him to relinquish the belt.

Pereira’s win, meanwhile, was his first since winning the vacant title at UFC 295 last November  against Jiří Procházka, who was also among the victorious fighters at UFC 300 this weekend.
