Jiri Prosaska vs. UFC for the vacant title at UFC 295 on November 11 Jamahal Hill says he is no longer the UFC Light Heavyweight Champion as Alex Pereira has been announced.
Hill tore his Achilles tendon in July and announced he was vacating the title so the 205-pound division could move forward without him. For the past two months, he has still been listed as the champion, but that has all changed now that a fight for the vacant title has been booked.
„It makes some sense,” Hill said. „That would officially vacate me as champion. I’m sure a lot of people were confused about that process, and the reason is: whenever Jiri vacates the belt, it’s immediate because they’ve already set up a fight to fill that vacancy. [My title is vacated] Now a fight has been announced to fight for the title.
Hill announced a fight between two legitimate rivals.
„They’re definitely two fighters I’d love to meet in my reign as champion,” he said. „I plan to meet when I get back. I hate the fact that one type has to cancel the other. For me, the best thing that could happen to me personally would be to have a controversial type deal happen so they both keep their value so I can come back and do my thing. can do.
„But it is what it is. I’m recovering, I’m coming in, I’m doing physical therapy twice a day and I’m back at it.
„I plan to be there,” Hill said. “I’m going to go, I’m going to look, I’m going to see what’s going on, I’m going to look the next guy in the eye and let him know what’s coming. I don’t have to say anything, I can give you a glimpse and you know everything you need to know. I can’t wait to come back.
„Let’s see who will sit in charge of the throne until the king returns.”
