Alex Pereira will meet Jamahal Hill in UFC 300 main event

The moment UFC fans have been waiting for has finally happened. UFC 300 will be taking place on April 13th in Las Vegas after months of rumors and speculation the show finally has a main event. Alex Pereira will defend his UFC light heavyweight title against former champ Jamahal Hill.  Pereira (9-2) is the former UFC middleweight champion, and he was the quickest to win two divisional titles in UFC history (seven fights).


Hill (12-1, 1 NC) has been out due to a torn Achilles tendon. He never lost the light heavyweight title but relinquished the belt last summer due to the injury. Hill, a 32-year-old Chicago native, has won four straight, and he beat Glover Teixeira to win the title in January 2023. Pereira won the belt in November, knocking out ex-champion Jiri Prochazka to become a two-weight title holder.Pereira vs. Hill is the third title fight added to the card. Justin Gaethje will put his BMF belt on the line against Max Holloway, and Zhang Weili will defend the UFC women's strawweight title against Yan Xiaonan.


“I’m looking forward to the challenge,” Jamahal Hill said. “The challenge of Alex has become huge, you know? He’s done incredible things, two division champion in the UFC in seven fights, quickest to ever do it. So, I just wanna get in there and see how I match up with him.”
