At UFC 283, the main event between Jamahal Hill and Glover Teixeira was an epic, five-round battle where Hill emerged victorious to become the new light heavyweight champion. It was a bloody affair, and the social media world was shocked to see the amount of blood pouring from Hill’s face before the final round.
Jamahal Hill’s Head Bleeding ‘Gatorade’ Before Final Round at UFC 283 Was Described as a “Scene Out of a Horror Movie” by Some
The blood that was dripping from Hill’s head was unmistakable, and it was clear that he was taking a beating from Teixeira. The amount of blood coming from Jamahal Hill’s head was so severe that his corner had to bring out a bucket of cold water to help him recover. However, when they poured the water over his head, it turned completely red, making it look like he had been doused in Gatorade.
Many people began to speculate that it was not Hill’s blood, but rather Teixeira’s that had been spilled onto him. This was due to the fact that Hill did not have any visible cuts on his head, while Teixeira had a deep gash over his right eye, which was actively bleeding throughout the fight.
So, how did Teixeira’s blood end up on Hill’s head? The most likely explanation is that Teixeira was able to land some punches and elbows on Hill during the fight that caused his own blood to spray onto Hill’s head area while they were grappling. It is possible that Hill could have been cut by Teixeira, but the lack of any visible wounds on Hill’s head suggests otherwise. Maybe it was hidden by his hair.
The end result was a dramatic and bloody fight where Hill emerged as the victor and unified the light heavyweight championship. For Hill, it was a moment of redemption after he was given short notice to take the fight, and prove that he was ready to take on the elite of the division. For Teixeira, it marked the end of a storied and successful career in the UFC, as he chose to retire following the fight.
No matter who won or lost, the fight between Hill and Teixeira was an incredible spectacle and a reminder of the power of the human spirit. The fight was filled with moments of courage and determination, and despite the result, both fighters should be applauded for their efforts. Hill’s victory was made even more impressive by the fact that he was able to triumph in the face of such a relentless attack from Teixeira, and all that blood.
