Jamahal Hill vs Jiri Prochakza in works for UFC 292

Recent media reports have hinted that newly crowned light heavyweight champion Jamahal Hill is gearing up for his first title defense against former champion Jiri Prochazka at UFC 292.

Prochazka is yet to be defeated in the octagon and secured the belt after defeating Glover Teixeira with a submission at UFC 275, only to relinquish it due to a major shoulder injury before their December rematch. However, the Czech star is now set to return to the octagon sooner than expected and will likely be a formidable opponent for Hill.

Currently boasting a stellar 6-1 record in the UFC, Jamahal Hill has already established himself as a dominant force in the light heavyweight division. Following his triumph over Glover Teixeira at UFC 283 in January, Hill successfully claimed the vacant light heavyweight gold. With his inaugural title defense looming, the 30-year-old is keen to prove himself as a dominant force in the octagon.
