Jamahal Hill rips Magomed Ankalaev for saying he deserves title shot over him: ‘You’re not entertaining’

Jamahal Hill shut down Magomed Ankalaev’s claim that he should leapfrog him for a title shot.

After knocking out Johnny Walker in the main event of UFC Fight Night 234, Ankalaev (19-1-1 MMA, 10-1-1 UFC) argued that he’s done more than former champion Hill to earn a title shot against light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira.

Hill (12-1 MMA, 6-1 UFC), who vacated his 205-pound title after rupturing his Achilles tendon, is expected to be next in line against Pereira. He mocked Ankalaev for suggesting that he’s a more deserving title challenger.

“That’s some weird math to try to math,” Hill said on his YouTube channel. “First, Magomed, just – I get it, you trying to … you want your dream to come true and things like that. You want to get back to a shot and you’re hungry.

“Bro is not very bright. He doesn’t do bright things. Nothing about his movement or motion or anything he does seems bright at all, so I’m not really surprised that he has a not-so-bright take on this whole thing.”

Not only does Hill think Ankalaev isn’t worthy of a title shot, he doesn’t think fans are clamoring to watch him fight.

“We’re in the entertainment business, and you’re not entertaining,” Hill said. “Nobody wants to watch you fight. Nobody’s rushing to pay for your pay-per-view. So whenever it comes down to exciting and people want to see fight, I guarantee you more people want to see me fight than they want to see you fight. That alone, that math, is already killing you.

“My last four fights have been domination, finish, finish, finish. I’m the former champion. You were given the same chance to become champion and you sh*t the bed. You couldn’t finish the job. You couldn’t do it. It wasn’t meant to be for you. Whenever I stepped up, I showed my true colors and I showed that I was worthy to step in and actually be a champion.”
