During the recent media day, Alex Pereira shared his thoughts on Jamahal Hill getting advice from Israel Adesanya.

“I definitely don’t have expectations of him just sitting out, not training because of an injury,” Pereira said, as quoted by “If he signed the contract to fight this fight, he did for a reason.

“I think it was good, actually, it was the best thing he could have done for himself, because if he had went and sparred with Israel Adesanya, it would have been a big frustration for him, especially for the fact that I beat him so many times.

There is no plan. The next step is to keep defending the title, unlimited times. I’m not the kind of guy to call out opponents because I’ll fight anybody. I’m the champ. I’ll keep defending it”.
