Josh Hill Opponent Announced for SFS Hamilton on November 23

By:


At the Score Fighting Series in Sarnia, Ontario, it was announced that the undefeated Josh Hill (9-0) will fight former WEC fighter Rafael Rebello in his next fight. The fight will be on the SFS 7 card that will be held in Hamilton, Ontario on November 23.

Hamilton, which is Hill’s hometown, has been good to Hill. The Bantamweight fighter has won his last three fights in that city. His last win was over a top-ranked Canadian John Fraser who Hill dominated over three rounds in August.

Rebello (9-4) is a Florida fighter who once appeared in the WEC promotion. Rebello, a BJJ black belt, went 1-2 in the WEC but is currently riding a three fight win streak.

Hill commented on Rebello in an interview at the SFS 6on the telecast,

“He is a tough dude with a good record, good experience, and awesome jiu jitsu. I think stylistically we match up pretty good but I have to be careful. I can’t wait.”

With a win in November, there is a good chance that Hill could advance to the UFC.  When asked about that opportunity, Hill responded,

“I hope so…I am going to go out their and give my best again. Hopefully I get a finish and this one gets me (to the UFC).”

The Hill vs Rebello fight joins a card that already has a main event of Strikeforce fighter Jordan Mein who will take on former UFC fighter Forrest Petz.  Jesse Ronson will also be on the card fighting Ryan Healy.

    LOL

    Rafael Rebello’s last three opponents have a combined Win Loss record which total a whopping
    7-13!!

    Don’t think that will turn heads at the UFC!!

    Rebello has no stand-up and cant stop a takedown to save his life!..

    prolly end up being another lay N pray win for Hill.. Unfortunately another boring win may not be enough to get Hill into the UFC

    If you find it boring when a fighter slams an opponent to the mat and smash the guy’s face and body, then mma is not a sport you understand or should follow. Next you’ll be saying how unimpressive GSP and Jon jones are, since his style is the same.
    Sure a slugfest, when two guys stand in the pocket and trade is entertaining, but the best fighters inflict maximum damage and receive as little as possible. If all you want is punching, watch boxing

    Not sure what the guy means by lay n pray….I guess its josh,s opponent laying on his back praying for josh to stop punching and elbowing his face…

    UFC …..for sure

    Nice ^^^^

    This myth of Josh being ‘boring’ was started by people who either don’t get mma or haven’t actually watched his last few fights.

    Im a big fan of Josh Hill and i apprecate the way he man handles and complety dominates opponents the way he does . i think his top notch wrestling and smothering top game is un to watch and he stays very busy on top .. he passing . good ground and pound and acheived mount a few times against the haggis basher if you think thats lay and pray then this sport isnt for you .\\whens the last time you watched the haggis basher be controlled like that and shut down . he has the skills to be in the UFC now .

    i understand people wanting to see fighters play rock em sock em robots but leave that for fighters like me that didnt have many brain cells to start lol

    ill be rooting for josh. seems like a good dude with all the tools to be a career fighter

    Not this shot again,

    I haven’t watched Real Steel or whatever, but no I don’t want rockem sockem style fighting. I just don’t want very obvious lnp.

    Fact is fact, and Hill will defeat Rebello.

    Josh Hill is exactly what a “lay and pray” fighter is.

    He takes his opponent down to the mat, lay’s on top of them, doesn’t do much damage and takes the fight to the judges’ scorecards for the win.

    Is it an effective way to fight? Hell Ya!! Especially when matched up against a weaker wrestler.

    Boring to watch? Fuck Ya!!

    If you are a “lay and pray” fighter you’re screwed.

    UFC and Dana White don’t want their Bantam Weight champion to be a boring “lay-and-pray” fighter.

    They won’t sell fights. If you don’t sell fights, you don’t make money. It’s that simple. It doesn’t matter how many home town fans you have in Hamilton.

    As long as you can pick and choose your matches you will be ok. It’s when your fights are picked for you is when your screwed.

    That’s probably why Hill and his team backed out of the L.C. Davis fight.

    It certainly wasn’t because Rafael Rebello was a more worthy opponent!

    IM EITHER CONFUSED OR FUCKING BAKED CAUSE THIS SURE THE FUCK AINT NO STEP UP FROM THE HAGGIS BASHER . ALEX YOU ARE THE BEST AT WHAT YOU DO BUT HAVING TO FLY OUT A GUY FROM FLORIDA THAT AINT EVEN CLOSE TO HILLS LEVEL SEEMS TO BE A PADDING ON HILLS RECORD , MABE IF YOUR GOING TO FLA TO FIND A OK FIGHTER THEN FUCK IT , JUST MY OPINION. ANTONIO BANUALOS , JUST A THOUGHT OR EVEN MIGUEL TORRES , LETS SEE HOW HE CAN HANDLE SOME VERY HIGH LEVEL TALENT AND IF HE BEATS EITHER ONE THEN DANA WILL CALL , NOT GETTING THE CALL FOR FIGHTING THIS FIGHTER. NOT EVEN LC DAVIS VS HILL IS EXCITING . I LIKE HILL BUT CAN WE PLEASE SEE HOW REALLY FUCKING GOOD HE IS PLEASE. SFS IS THE BEST SO I KNOW THERE IS A BETTER FIGHT FOR HILL THEN THIS SHIT !

  13. smash says:

    It’s pretty hard to pad your record at this stage in Hill s career especially against guys that have fought in the WEC. Fact is Rebello is on a 3 fight win-streak, has fought in the W.E.C. 3 times, and is the BJJ instructor for American Top Team’s professional fighters. If you guys think Hill will walk through this guy your nuts!!!

    Id say those are decent credentials. Definitely a step-up from haggis basher and eric wilson etc. Rebello isn t the best 35er on the planet, but I would say josh is consistently fighting tougher opponents with each victory. Rebellos most recent loss was to UFC’s Chris Cariaso currently riding a 3-fight winstreak in the UFC.

    FACT IS HILL IS UFC CALIBER RIGHT NOW AND REBELLO USED TO BE WEC CALIBER AND HILL WILL WIPE THE FLOOR WITH THIS GUY AND REBELLO SURE THE FUCK AINT NO HAGGIS BASHER . MABE THEY NEED TO BRING IN REBELLO FOR THE BASHER BEFORE ANYONE THINKS THIS FIGHT IS A STEP UP FROM HIM ,CAUSE HILL NEEDS A BETTER QUALITY OPPONENT AFTER THE BASHER FIGHT. WRESTLER VS BJJ COACH = ANOTHER BORING FUCKING FIGHT ! I LOVE HILL AND THE SCORE BUT FUCK REBELLO S 3 FIGHT WIN STREAK IS NOT IMPRESSIVE ENOUGH TO GET A FIGHT WITH TINK , EVEN THOUGH TINK WOULD WOOP HIS ASS TOO !

    TINK FAN FOR LIFE !!!

    so what is the main reason hill isnt fighting lc davis and he is fighting rebello…? what was the issue with the score and issuing a contract to lc but not hill…? how does that happen…? also, lc has a a way better record than rebello and hill so wouldnt it make more sense for hill to fight lc instead of rebelllo..? would rather see hill vs davis than vs rebello

  33. GNP says:

    Lc davis is a striker and a wrestler…seems to me josh hill would have put him on his back…and controlled fom the top.

    Most of the posts suggest Hill just walks threw Rebello…However with rebello being a high level jits guy..I think Hill keeps the fighting standing ….

    Either way I,m looking forward to the fight ; and also pick Hill has the winner , But I think he finishes the guy..

    Rebello may have high level jujitsu, but many thought Fraser’s bjj would be too much and he couldn’t do anything to Hill from his back, while getting his face consistently punched for 3 rounds. Hill’s upcoming fight will go the exact same way, except maybe with a tko finish

    LOL @ Tink sticking.

    That’s some funny sh*t right there.

    I frankly don’t care if Quinn fights two monkeys with wooden spoons I just want to see the guy in the mix, as it were. He’s been terribly quiet lately and something tells me he’s been in the secret lab working on a flying monkey punch of death or something like that.

    What the world needs now is more Tink.

    Ridiculous that it stuck, you son of a bitch.
    TBH, i don’t really train anymore. If i get a fight, I’ll train for a bit, but not pouring everything into training anymore. I’m a “never was” that will show to fight for the sake of fighting. Screw all the time spent prepping for it. I’m clever and experienced enough to catch people anyways.

    The trick was calling in some favors and getting the TINK chat started when you fought out east. Frankly I’m still surprised that happened that night.

    Hill has not fought any big name opponents and his submissions were against strikers so to say that hill will dominate is ridiculous……Dont get me wrong, Hill has an impressive record and this will be his toughest fight to date. Hill better be training at a really big name gym other than the one he listed because ATT has some of the best coaches in world…
