The former UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill recently faced a tough knockout loss against Alex Pereria, and almost a week later, his new fight was announced. Jamahal Hill will be fighting against the 8th ranked light heavyweight contender Khalil Rountree on 29th June on the same card as Conor McGregor vs Michael Chandler.

This is a fantastic opportunity for Khalil Rountree to get some limelight and potentially get a few steps closer towards getting a title shot.

Fans and MMA experts are unsure of Jamahal Hill’s move to return this soon.

According to the public’s perspective, Jamahal Hill should’ve fought someone from the top 5, like Jiri Prochazka, whose winner could then fight for the title. In the meantime, it will be interesting to see who Alex Pereira decides to defend his belt against.

His desire to show up for a heavyweight showdown on 4th May will remain a desire because his manager recently confirmed that he has to recover from a toe injury.
