Former GLORY Middleweight and Light Heavyweight champion, Alex Pereira after securing his second win in the UFC has now demanded a higher-ranked middleweight opponent for his next bout and he has a few names already on his list. Alex Pereira made his promotional debut against Andreas Michailidis on November 6, 2021, at UFC 268. He won the fight via flying knee and punches early in the second round. In his last fight, he faced Bruno Silva. The fight was a tough one for Alex but he managed to get a decision to win.
The 2-0 in the UFC, Alex Pereira feels that now he is ready to face the top fighters in the UFC middleweight division.
“I had talked about Jared Cannonier because he’s a guy that is next for a title shot,” Pereira told reporters at the UFCFight Night 203 post-fight press conference. “Some people have already talked about me and Adesanya, so why not Cannonier? I don’t think I’m talking too much calling out Cannonier.”
