Video | Manager’s attempt to prank Jamahal Hill goes south in a hurry

Harry Kettle - May 11, 2022

Jamahal Hill’s manager almost lived to regret attempting to prank the UFC light heavyweight earlier this week. Within the context of the UFC’s light heavyweight division, Jamahal Hill is certainly one of the most exciting figures the promotion has at its disposal. His incredible speed and knockout ability make him one of the most dangerous prospects they’ve got at 205 pounds, and even in the wake of his humbling defeat to Paul Craig, he’s been able to bounce back with two impressive victories over Jimmy Crute and Johnny Walker.
