To say that Alex Pereira has been on the fast track in the UFC is an understatement. In just over two-and-a-half years, he has achieved more than most fighters dream of: eight fights, seven on pay-per-views, and headlining four of them. Notably, he’s captured championships in two different weight classes.

But behind the spotlight, Pereira has faced personal struggles. He recently revealed that he suffered from alcohol addiction at the age of 16, drinking up to a liter of alcohol daily. “At that time, I was really lost,” he admitted. Despite the challenges, Pereira has bravely confronted his addiction, showing vulnerability and honesty in his journey.

His upcoming headline bout at UFC 303 against Jiri Prochazka is another big opportunity. Pereira’s performances have convinced the UFC brass to call his number again, and he plans to continue creating a great legacy in the octagon. His story serves as a reminder that even champions face their own battles, and courage lies in acknowledging and overcoming them.
