Jamahal Hill turns attention to Jiri Prochazka after UFC 300 loss

After taking a day to think about it, former UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill knows the fight he wants next.

Hill suffered a first-round knockout loss to champ Alex Pereira in the UFC 300 main event Saturday at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. It was Hill’s first fight since tearing his ACL last July in a pickup basketball game, with many wondering if he was returning to the cage too soon. Hill’s surgically repaired knee didn’t appear to be an issue, but he still came out on the losing end of a devastating finish.

Now Hill is all about rebounding from defeat, and he sees fellow former champ and UFC 300 competitor Jiri Prochazka as a good option to get back on track. Hill let this be known Monday in a post on X.

Although Hill and Prochazka were once lined up to meet after Hill claimed the title vacated by Prochazka in November 2022, it seems unlikely that Prochazka would have interest coming out of UFC 300. After beating Aleksandar Rakic by second-round TKO on Saturday, Prochazka made it clear that he’s got his sights set on another light heavyweight title shot.
