The former light heavyweight champion recently revealed on social media that two tears in his meniscus, a sprained ACL and a Baker’s cyst — which leaked fluid into the back of his knee — led to him withdrawing from a proposed clash against Carlos Ulberg on June 29.

“This is only making me hungrier,” Hill added on Instagram. “Be back soon!!!”

Hill captured the vacant 205-pound belt with a unanimous decision triumph over Glover Teixeira at UFC 283 in January 2023. However, a ruptured Achilles tendon suffered in a pickup basketball game sidelined him for more than a year, forcing him to vacate the belt. His bid to regain the title at UFC 300 came up short, as he suffered a first-round knockout loss to reigning champion Alex Pereira on April 13.

Hill was initially slated to face Khalil Rountree in the UFC 303 co-main event before Rountree was removed from the event due to a failed drug test. Ulberg was then tabbed as a replacement opponent and will remain on the card against new adversary Anthony Smith. UFC 303 takes place at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas and his headlined by a light heavyweight championship rematch between Pereira and Jiri Prochazka.
