Jamal Hill reacts to Alex Pereira's move to light heavyweight

The current UFC light heavyweight champion, Jamal Hill, is thrilled to hear that former UFC middleweight title holder Alex Pereira will continue his professional career in his division.

“Welcome! Looking forward to meeting you,” the American wrote on the social network, referring to the Brazilian.

“I’ll come and kick your door,” Pereira replied.

Last weekend, Alex Pereira lost the UFC middleweight championship belt, losing in an immediate rematch by knockout in the second round to Israel Adesanya, and a few days after the fight, he announced a change in weight category.

In January of this year, Jamal Hill won the vacant UFC Light Heavyweight Championship with a five-round unanimous decision over former division champion Glover Teixeira. It is assumed that the next opponent of the American will be the Czech Jiri Prochazka, who was forced to vacate the title due to injury and is currently preparing to return to the octagon after shoulder surgery.
