Alex Pereira’s Next Opponent Revealed After UFC 303 Victory

“Talk to Dana White”

Reigning UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira secured another stunning victory at UFC 303 this past weekend. In a dominant performance, Pereira knocked out Ji?í Procházka early in the second round. This win marks Pereira’s fourth consecutive victory since his loss to Israel Adesanya at UFC 287.

Post-Fight Hints and Future Plans

Post-fight, Pereira hinted at potential future opponents, indicating he is open to fighting either Jamahal Hill or Magomed Ankalaev next. Regarding Ankalaev’s challenge, Pereira stated,

“Everyone deserves to fight me, but I am not the guy to ask. You need to talk to Dana White. I am ready for anyone.” He responded similarly to Hill’s challenge with a straightforward, “Okay.”

Since his UFC debut against Andreas Michailidis at UFC 268, Pereira has amassed eight wins in the top MMA organization, defeating five former UFC champions, including Sean Strickland and Jan Blachowicz.
