In a surprising turn of events, Alex Pereira has taken center stage as the new main event for UFC 303. With Conor McGregor vs. Michael Chandler scrapped due to McGregor’s injury, Pereira (10-2 MMA, 7-1 UFC) will now face Jiri Prochazka (30-4-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC) on June 29 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The Risk and the Faith

Accepting a main event fight on short notice is no small feat. Pereira, known for his striking prowess, acknowledged the challenges but expressed confidence in his abilities. He stated, “I understand that this fight is very close, and there may be difficulties with the lead-up time. But if there is somebody that can make this happen, it is me! POATAN! This is why I am one of the biggest names in the UFC, Alex Pereira!”

Pereira continued “I take risks that not one other person would be willing to take but I know I have my ancestors with me. The spirits are with me and I’m ready for it all.”

Alex Pereira’s UFC Journey

Pereira, 36, has been making waves in the light heavyweight division.

Alex Pereira’s unwavering faith extends beyond his own abilities. He believes that his ancestors and spirits are with him, guiding him through this high-stakes matchup. His willingness to take risks sets him apart, and fans eagerly await his performance in the octagon.
