Alex Pereira is the king of UFC light heavyweight. He’s set to be challenged by Jamahal Hill upon his return, who is constantly picking on everyone. However, the American with the cut mouth has gotten himself into trouble.
Alex Pereira made history again and again in November. He defeated Jiri Prochazka in a fight for the title of UFC light heavyweight king. He finished BJP in the second round. Immediately, however, the word started to get out that referee Marc Goddard ended the bout earlier than would have been appropriate.
While Prochazka is now eyeing his next opponent and is not at all sure who he should fight, the Brazilian is clear. His next opponent is set to be Jamahal Hill, who won the title after being vacated by the Moravian Samurai.
Hill, however, is still recovering from a serious injury he picked up when he was champion and when the date of his fight with Prochazka was being eyed. Now, however, the American slugger, who has a badly cut mouth, is in trouble.
That’s because it has been reported in the American media that the former UFC light heavyweight champion has been arrested by the police and is facing unpleasant charges.
Jamahal Hill in trouble
Jamahal Hill is now facing domestic violence charges. This is because he was alleged to have assaulted his brother James Anthony Hill Jr. causing serious or at least aggravated injury to him.
Jamahal was arrested by police on Monday. He spent time in the Kent County Jail. However, police released him the same day, saying the investigation is ongoing while the fighter is at large.
Hill will therefore have to defend himself in court. His attorney, Brian Butler of Suckerpunch Entertainment for MMA Fighting, referred to media reports as clickbait. The American fighter maintains his innocence and says the allegations are false.
“We will not comment further until the truth comes out in court,” Butler said.
American media outlets, however, recall that Hill was among the fighters who defended UFC boss Dana White after he physically assaulted his wife. Besides, he has hinted that he intends to physically settle his differences with journalist Ariel Helwani over his interview with Jiri Prochazka.
If Hill is indeed charged, it could potentially be a blemish on his UFC title run as well, which could rob him of a shot.
