Alex Pereira Officially Signs With UFC
Days after speculation, Alex Pereira officially signed on the dotted lines to be added to UFC’s roster.
Pereira (33-6 in kickboxing, 3-1 in MMA) posted a video of him signing the official contract on Instagram Wednesday. Pereira has been rightfully labeled as the only man to knockout UFC middleweight champion Israel Adesanya.

But Adesanya isn’t the only opponent who’s succumbed to Pereira’s knockouts. After losing via submission in his MMA debut, Pereira went on a three-fight winning streak, all ending in knockouts.
Pereira will fight in the middleweight division where Adesanya stands on top. He is scheduled to face Andreas Michailidis at UFC 268 for promotion debut.
“The only place in this world that Adesanya is better than me is in speaking English,” Pereira told MMA Junkie in December 2019.
