In a combat sports universe where precision, grit, determination, and strength are tested to the limits, Jamahal Hill has had a fabulous run as a professional mixed martial artist ever since stepping inside the ring for the first time. He didn’t take much to climb the ladder of success and be at the top of his division in the elite professional mixed martial arts promotion, the UFC, where he reigned as the promotion’s light heavyweight champion.


Jamahal Hill had a fascination for combat sports from his early years. Initially immersed in basketball, he transitioned to professional mixed martial arts and pursued a career in it professionally. Hill made his professional debut as a mixed martial artist in 2017 and clocked a record of 5 wins and 0 losses before appearing at Dana White’s Contender Series 21. He defeated Alexander Poppeck via a third-round TKO in the bout. The win earned him a UFC contract and cleared the deck for him to compete at the highest level in the global promotion. Jamahal Hill registered victories over names like Ovince Saint Preux, Johnny Walker, and Thiago Santos while competing in the light heavyweight division in the UFC.


Owing to his unmatched success, Jamahal Hill earned an opportunity for the light heavyweight title against the then-champion, Glover Teixeira, at UFC 283. The duo fought through the five rounds of their bout and the fight was decided on the judge’s scorecard, which adjudged Hill the winner by a unanimous decision. Jamahal Hill couldn’t defend his title, as a few months later he suffered an injury, forcing him to vacate his title. Hill is scheduled to return and face the current undisputed light heavyweight champion, Alex Pereira, in the main event of UFC 300 for the light heavyweight title.
