UFC’s Alex Pereira Eyes Potential Move to Heavyweight Division

After a dominating win over Jiri Prochazka, UFC star Alex Pereira has sparked talks of a potential move to the heavyweight division. In an interview following the fight, Pereira expressed interest in moving up, citing that it could be in his future. This news has caught the attention of both fans and UFC brass, with president Dana White hinting that the company is not opposed to the idea.

However, White also acknowledged that Pereira’s jump to heavyweight would be a significant undertaking, noting that he is not yet familiar with the division’s top talent. When asked about a potential showdown between Pereira and Jon Jones, widely regarded as the greatest of all time, White expressed hesitation, citing the level of competition that comes with facing the top pound-for-pound fighter.

Meanwhile, reigning light heavyweight champion Magomed Ankalaev is next in line to face Pereira, and is eager to put an end to his reign. Ankalaev, fresh off a knockout win over Jhonny Walker, is confident in his ability to knockout Pereira and become the top light heavyweight fighter on the planet.

Jon Jones, however, seems to be keen on facing Pereira at heavyweight, taking to Instagram to share his interest in the bout. This has sparked even more debate around the potential match-up, with some fans speculating that it could be the best-selling fight in history.
