Jamahal 'Sweet Dreams' Hill upset one of the higher ranked light heavyweight contenders Saturday, making him a contender. 

Hill, who is now 8-0-1 as a UFC Light Heavyweight, fights out of the Black Lion Jiu- Jiutsu gym in Byron Center.

He defeated Ovince St. Pierre, who had more UFC fights than Hill in a solid performance.

The UFC fight site Sherdog described the fight this way:

...the 29-year-old was completely undaunted, brimming with obvious confidence, and took the fight to St. Preux immediately. Hill’s boxing was simply too much for St. Preux, and his early and copious investment in body work paid dividends in the second round, when it helped set up the TKO finish. With all due respect to the likes of Klidson Abreu and Dequan Townsend, Hill just picked up by far the most impressive win of his young career to date, and he did it with ease and style. A Top 15 opponent is the likely next step for the young man from Grand Rapids.

Here's video of the fight if you missed it.

I love Hill just for this Sherdog photo.
