Jamahal Hill was recently labeled the funniest fighter in the UFC by Neil Magny during an interview with Sportskeeda's Andrew Whitelaw. But 'Sweet Dreams' isn't just a comedian in-person, as he enjoys posting hilarious voice-over videos on his Instagram.

He recently posted a rib-tickling video responding to Jiri Prochazka's recent call out. Hill is the newly-crowned UFC light heavyweight champion and holds the strap that belonged to Prochazka less than six months ago. Following Hill's victory at UFC 283, the former champion took to Instagram and said the following:

"Congratulations. I'm coming. I'M COMING!"

Jamahal Hill responded to Prochazka's call out by also venturing into the snow, and said:

"But where you at tho? Where you at, though? And by the way, that's what she said. THAT'S WHAT SHE SAID!"

Jiri Prochazka was forced to relinquish the light heavyweight title in December after sustaining a horrific shoulder injury in preparation for his fight with Glover Teixeira at UFC 282. The bout was canceled and Jan Blachowicz and Magomed Ankalaev were awarded a title fight in the new main event of UFC 282.

But disaster struck as the fight went to a split draw, leaving the belt vacant as the promotion booked yet another title fight between Jamahal Hill and Glover Teixeira for UFC 283.


Jamahal Hill credits Glover Teixeira's heart and durability at UFC 283

Jamahal Hill and Glover Teixeira went to war for 25 minutes in the main event of UFC 283. Both fighters incurred damage, but there was a stark difference in the severity of injuries between the two fighters.

'Sweet Dreams' controlled the exchanges on the feet, and used his slick boxing to land a UFC light heavyweight record of 232 significant strikers in the fight. Teixeira's face was a bloody mess by the time the fifth round arrived, and the commentators discussed whether the fight should continue or not.

Hill had his opponent on wobbly legs a number of times in the bout, but couldn't get the finish he desired. 'Sweet Dreams' recently spoke to Mike Bohn of MMAJunkie and praised Teixeira's durability.

He said:

"I knew I had him on the hook, I just couldn't put him away. I just couldn't put him away. Even in the third round when I had him on his back and was hitting him with shots, he would pull me in or wrestle up, so it was just that. Non-stop rolling, looking to counter, like who does that while enduring the type of beating that you're enduring?"
