Jamahal Hill returns against Khalil Rountree Jr at UFC 303: McGregor vs Chandler

Jamahal Hill is set for a quick return after his defeat against Alex Pereira. The former light heavyweight champion faces Khalil Rountree Jr at UFC 303: McGregor vs Chandler. The fight card airs live on Saturday, June 29 from T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Chicago’s 32-year-old Hill (12-2, 1 NC) lost his previous bout in April via one-punch KO against Pereira in the headliner of UFC 300, which snapped his four-fight winning streak. LA’s 34-year-old Rountree Jr (13-5, 1 NC) was in action last December, when he stopped Anthony Smith in the third round and secured his fifth straight victory.

The promotion confirmed the fight via post on X today.
