The Scrap recently chatted with UFC light heavyweight Jamahal “Sweet Dreams” Hill (7-0) who is busy preparing for his fight against Klidson “The Russian Terror” Abreu (15-4). The bout will take place on May 30 at UFC Fight Night Apex.
Hill competed on the 2019 Contender Series and won by TKO against Alexander Poppeck in the second round. The 29-year-old made his UFC debut in January on UFC on ESPN+ 24 where he won by unanimous decision against Darko Stošić. Abreu is coming off a split decision loss against Shamil Gamzatov back in November.
Speaking about his road to the UFC, Hill stated, “I work hard for everything that’s happened to me especially recently. I’ve expected this my whole life. It is more just surreal it’s actually here; it’s happening”. When the topic of cooking came up, Hill spoke about his love of food and cooking. During his weight cut for his upcoming fight, the Michigan resident admitted that he’s been craving grilled cheese sandwiches with pickles. He’s certainly not one to put ketchup on his sandwich or burger though.
