Ancalaev reacted to the organization of the Pereira and Hill fight

No. 3 ranked UFC welterweight Magomed Ankalaev commented on the news that a title fight between current titleholder, Alex Pereira, and former division champion, Jamal Hill, will be the main event of the UFC 300 anniversary tournament, which will take place April 13 in Las Vegas.

“Jamal, please don’t lose – I want you to win. After that I will show you a master class,” the Russian wrote on social media, addressing the American.

Ancalaev also made it clear again that he would like to see former UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya, whom he has already challenged to a fight, as his next opponent.

“Steilbender?” he added.

Last month, 31-year-old Magomed Ankalaev won a potential contender’s bout by knocking out Brazilian Johnny Walker in the second round, and a fight between Alex Pereira and Jamal Hill was officially announced the day before by UFC chief, Dana White.
