UFC’s Michel Pereira Rescues Dogs In Brazil Flood

UFC’s Michel Pereira saved numerous dogs during a flood in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

The Brazilian was coming off a win against Ihor Potieria at UFC 301 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. He stopped his opponent with a first-round KO. The win extended his UFC record to 11-2. It took him a step closer to facing the UFC Middleweight Champion Dricus Du Plessis

The win was short lived due to floods in the south of Brazil, Rio Grande do Sul. Much of the infrastructure was destroyed, leading to many evacuations and rescue attempts. The flooding could continue for the next two weeks. Several dogs were in danger, resulting in Pereira taking action.

Pereira’s next fight is against Roman Dolidze on June 8 on the Jared Cannonier vs. Nassourdine Imavov card. Since moving from welterweight to middleweight, he has a 3-0 record. He is also on an eight-fight-win streak, beating Michal Oleksiejczuk and Andre Petroski before Potieria. While the focus is on becoming a champion, his work outside the Octagon is also being praised.
