Jamil Hill-Taylor Wants to Become the Best Featherweight of All-Time
Dec 4, 2018
The IBJJF 2018 featherweight World Champion, Jamil Hill-Taylor from TLI, joined the FloGrappling staff for a candid discussion on all things jiu-jitsu. One of the topics broached was Jamil's desire to not simply be a one-hit wonder, and but become the GOAT of the featherweight division.
"If you asked me my goals 2-3 years ago, you would never have heard me say, 'I want to win Worlds at Black Belt.' I would always say that 'I wanted to be the best featherweight black belt ever."
….It was never just one. I didn’t want to win the just one and disappear into the sunset. I think Rafa or Cobrinha has the most titles at five, six. I want seven. I want eight. Every year I compete I want to win the World Championship.
