VIDEO: Alex Pereira wins by 1st round KO in MMA return

Published by

Pereira is a Glory Kickboxing Champion, but may be best known for being the only man to KO Israel Adesanya. Adesanya is currently the UFC Middleweight Champion and is undefeated in MMA with a record of 20-0.

Pereira lost his MMA debut by submission back in 2015. He then won two fights by KO in 2016, and took a break from the sport. Instead he focussed on his kickboxing career.

However, Pereira has reportedly helped out Anderson Silva and Glover Teixeira in training camp lately. This has inspired a return to MMA, where he hopes to meet Israel Adesanya again some day.

Signing a contract with LFA, he made his debut for the promotion last night and won via 1st round KO. You can see the video below of both knockouts.
