Pereira Wants Trilogy With Adesanya – ‘Who Is Better, Be Real With Your Fans’

Alex Pereira has expressed his desire to have a third MMA fight with Israel Adesanya.

Their rivalry stands at 1-1 following their last meeting at UFC 287 on April 8th, 2023. During the course of that process, Adesanya leveled the rivalry with a second-round TKO.

The result was a complete change from the first UFC fight, where Pereira became the middleweight champion with a fifth-round TKO.

Naturally, there have been question marks over whether or not fans can expect to see a third fight. Pereira has expressed his intention to move up to light heavyweight.

Meanwhile, Adesanya has stressed that he is moving on to other things, ruling out the possibility, as he could face Robert Whittaker or Dricus Du Plessis.

“I don’t keep score. I settle it, and now it’s settled…I did the hard yard and I earned my f*cking rematch. Now he has to do the hard yard and earn it, but I don’t think he’s going to.

“Go cause problems at 205. He’s a motherf****r to deal with, I’ll tell you that,” Adesanya

And yet, the Brazilian made it clear that he has some unfinished business. 

“In kick-boxing it’s impossible now to be better than me. In MMA it’s 1:1. Be real with your fans and let’s show the world who is better in MMA,” Pereira
