Alex Pereira, the UFC light heavyweight champion, recently defended his title for the second time with a second-round TKO victory over Jiri Prochazka at UFC 303. While speculation has been rife about Pereira’s next opponent, it seems that Magomed Ankalaev might not be the frontrunner after all.

Jorge Guimarães, Pereira’s manager, weighed in on the discussion by commenting under a poll asking who the champion should face next. The options included Ankalaev, Jan Blachowicz, the winner of Tom Aspinall vs. Curtis Blaydes, and the winner of Jon Jones vs. Stipe Miocic.

Guimarães reportedly picked Blachowicz as the next opponent. Blachowicz previously welcomed Pereira to the light heavyweight division, giving him his toughest test at 205 pounds to date. However, some argue that Blachowicz’s last win came against Aleksandar Rakic, who was unable to continue due to a torn ACL over two years ago.

Meanwhile, Magomed Ankalaev, the No. 2-ranked light heavyweight, has expressed interest in facing Pereira for the title. Ankalaev claims he will cause three times as much damage to Pereira as Israel Adesanya did at UFC 287.

He tweeted, “@AlexPereiraUFC I respect you, but the reality is you’re still the champion because you haven’t fought me yet. If Izzy can KO you, then I will cause 3x damage. I will do it with no wrestling”. Ankalaev’s strategy is to avoid taking the fight to the ground, a tactic that has worked for him in the past.

As the UFC light heavyweight division awaits its next title bout, fans and fighters alike are eager to see who will step into the octagon against the dominant champion, Alex Pereira.
