The Paul Craig humbling
In June 2021, Jamahal Hill had a perfect record of eight wins and zero losses in mixed martial arts competitions. It appeared he felt very confident coming into a clash with Scottish phenom Paul Craig. Still, unfortunately for him, Craig was at the height of his abilities during the fight.
Jamahal had to start again after the wild incident where the Brit dislocated Hill’s elbow. Since then, Jamahal hasn’t lost a bout, so he must have been doing something right.
One unfortunate person did just that by making Hill angry, and when Hill reacted, the person responsible begged Jamahal that it was nothing more than a joke, but Jamahal did not believe him.
