Abreu will face off against Jamahal Hill in a light heavyweight matchup on May 30, Damon Martin of MMAFighting.com reports.
Hill and Abreu were expected to duke it out on a May 23 card when it was being targeted earlier in the month, but the date has been pushed back an additional week and could take place in Las Vegas if the Nevada Athletic Commission allows it. Abreu is 15-4 as a pro, getting 10 victories through submission, four by KO/TKO and one by decision. His most recent fight was a split decision loss at the hands of Shamil Gamzatov at UFC Fight Night 163 on Nov. 9. Hill is 7-0 as a pro, with three victories by way of KO/TKO and four by way of decision. He won his most recent fight Jan. 25 against the Darko Stosic via unanimous decision at UFC Fight Night 166.

Drops split decision in Moscow
Light HeavyweightUFC
November 9, 2019
Abreu lost to Shamil Gamzatov via split decision (28-29, 29-28, 28-29) at UFC Fight Night on Saturday in Moscow, Russia.
It was one of the rare fights that was so close that it's too difficult to get worked up about the result either way. Abreu's biggest issue was that he was the less active of the two men. He attempted just 95 total strikes compared to 158 from Gamzatov. While he did land the only successful takedown of the bout, that simply wasn't enough in a fight that was primarily spent on the feet. Abreu was effective enough in Rounds 1 and 2 that he has a real claim for a 29-28 win, but going to the scorecards against a native Russian in his home country is a recipe for disaster and Abreu paid the price. The Brazilian has now alternated wins and losses in his first three UFC bouts.
Third UFC fight in works

Abreu has a light heavyweight fight in the works against Shamil Gamzatov for UFC Moscow on November 9, Nolan King of MMAJunkie.com reports.
After dropping his UFC debut in February, Abreu came back strong in his second go when he defeated Sam Alvey via unanimous decision at UFC on ESPN 4 in July. Now, Abreu will surely have his hands full come November, as while Gamzatov will be making his own UFC debut, he boasts a 13-0 professional record.
Picks up first UFC win

July 20, 2019
Abreu defeated Sam Alvey via unanimous decision (30-27, 30-27, 29-28) at UFC San Antonio on Saturday.
Not much of note happened for the first four minutes, as Abreu carefully selected his shots in an effort to avoid the counter striking of Alvey. Abreu tried multiple times to execute a takedown up against the cage, but was ultimately unsuccessful. The two finally got going with a flurry in the round's closing seconds, and Abreu got the better of the exchange (even if he did land a late knee at the bell). Abreu landed with kicks early in the second round and eventually recorded a takedown, but Alvey reversed position while Abreu was looking to secure a a choke. He was unable to take advantage, and the round finished with both men on the feet. Abreu took some heavy shots early in the third, but started to get momentum back with a damaging combination in the final minute. In the end, Abreu did just enough to pick up his first UFC victory, though it was a lackluster showing from both men.
