Jamahal Hill is the big name in the UFC’s light heavyweight division, but he got injured and will lose his belt to recover; see details

Champion of UFC, jamahal hill will lose his light heavyweight belt due to a serious hamstring injury. The fighter revealed his injury while participating in a live broadcast on his YouTube channel. The athlete did not hide his emotion and showed all his frustration at not being able to continue with his invincibility in the category. Therefore, the title should pass to the hand of another rival.

With Jamahal Hill injured, there is a possibility that the UFC will promote a fight between Alex Poatan and Jan Blachowicz. Ultimate has not yet revealed what steps it will take and should make something official in the coming days. The now former light heavyweight champion did not hide his frustration with the decision to relinquish the title, but warned that it was the best thing to do for the division. The expectation is that he will take time to return to the octagons.

I ruptured my Achilles tendon. (…) It is a difficult injury. It will require surgery and recovery time, and I will be out for a while. (…) Jiri Prochazka was the champion. He suffered an injury, these things happen. He let go of the belt and allowed others to not hold the division, move the division forward, to keep the entertainment, so there would be a champion. And I will do the same“, he explained.

It is worth mentioning that there is a curse around the light heavyweights. Jamahal Hill, for example, when he took over the belt in the category saw Jiri Prochazka injure his shoulder and give up his victory. About a year later, the same happened to the American, but the injury was in the tendon region and it will take time to get back to physical shape.

It is important to highlight the ranking of light heavyweights in the UFC. Behind Jamahal comes Jiri Prochazka, who sees Magomed Ankalaev and Jan Blachowicz also dreamed of fighting for the belt. Alex Poatan runs on the outside and sees other rivals appearing as favorites for this dispute. For now, nothing is set.
