Josh Hill Opponent Announced for SFS Hamilton on November 23
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.
