Jamahal Hill is ready to fight Alex Pereira and has no problem with it. Pereira is not someone Hill is afraid of. The fight between the two is being talked about more and more after Pereira commented on Hill's Instagram post and challenged him to a match.
“S***, what’s popping? What the f*** you think?” Hill said on The MMA Hour. “What’s popping? We can get that cracking. If he wants to come on up and try his luck with that s***, come on in. I’m not ducking, I’m not scared of nobody, and I take very seriously the challenges.
It gives me extra incentive to f*** you up. I said I think I’d knock him out — and I do. It ain’t like I didn’t say s***. I said that s***. If he feels some type of way about it, show me. I’m in the ‘show me’ business”.

However, Hill is not confident that he will actually get to the fight, given that the UFC has completely different plans. The problem of their division is the injuries of important fighters, but we hope for a quick recovery of most of them because we really want big fights.
“I don’t think [it’ll happen] just for the simple fact of, like, I think he would have to defend his title at middleweight first,” Hill said talking about Pereira. I think they want that — they want to keep that division moving.
As far as talent, I think our division is great, we just have a bunch of unfortunate circumstances right now with guys being hurt and things like that, so it’s kind of creating a headache, and I don’t think they want to throw the middleweight division into that type of headache.
So I think they probably want to keep that one rolling, so he probably defends his belt at least once or twice. He probably might do the Izzy fight again, and then probably like a Rob Whitaker. Because if he beats both of them, if he beats Izzy again, if he beats of them, now hell yeah.
F*** dude, f*** yes. Yes. Hell yes. Yes. We do that”.
