Jamahal Hill on Alex Pereira

In a recent interview with Bodog Canada, Jamahal Hill shared his thoughts on fighting Alex Pereira and explained why he thinks he’s better than him.

“I feel like I’m just better,” Hill said, as quoted by mmajunkie.usatoday.com. "I’ve said it in multiple interviews and people just don’t believe me. I am truly just better than he is, period.

That’s just the way it is. I’m better than him everywhere, and I don’t want to keep saying it. I just want to get out there and show it. It’s not going to go well for him. That’s why I’m loving all the talk, all the hype, the ‘Pereira is this,’ the mythical, all of that* .

I’m loving all of that * . Build him up in your heads as big as y’all want".

“I’m knocking him the * out, and when I say this, this is no disrespect to Alex. However you take it is however you take it.

But for me, there’s no disrespect. I like Alex. I like Alex whenever he fights. I think he’s funny. I think he brings attention and good energy and good charisma and good things to the sport and to the company and to all of us as a whole that are in this lane. … I realized the mismatch it truly is. It’s truly, truly a mismatch”.
