Jamahal Hill predicts Jiri Prochazka vs. Alex Pereira title fight

Former UFC light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill has predicted the upcoming bout between Jiri Prochazka and Alex Pereira. During his appearance on Michael Bisping and Anthony Smith's Believe You Me podcast, Hill said that the vacant title fight could go either way.

Jamahal Hill mentioned that Pereira is disciplined with his game plan and won't fall for any of 'Denisa's tricks.

"Alex [Pereira] isn't going for that, he's not going for the tricks, he's not going for all the outlet because he has the specific mission and specific points in places he wants to be when he's striking and when he's engaging, and I think Alex is better at getting into those spots than Jiri is."

While further speaking about how Jiri Prochazka has more experience, which could prove to be vital in their fight, Jamahal Hill stated:

"I think if he can use his unorthodoxness instead of trying to strike, actually get in and mix...clinch him up, beat him up in the clinch, drag him to the ground. And I think that would more so be his best way of making it an all around mixed martial arts fight."
