The victory crowned him as the new 205-pound division champion and solidified his place as a top name in online sports betting.

After this career-defining triumph for Hill, what’s next for “Sweet Dreams?” Who will he be facing next, and when will it happen?

When Is Jamahal Hill’s Next Fight?

Hill has fully recovered from his ACL injury, and as announced by UFC president Dana White, he will face the reigning champion, Alex Pereira, in the main event of UFC 300.
