Alex Pereira, the newly crowned light-heavyweight champion, continues to suggest that a fight could be announced in the near future as UFC 300 fills up with exciting matchups.
The Brazilian could make history if he wins. All signs point to ‘Poatan,’ who is expected to defend his title against one of the top contenders in the 205 division. Tom Aspinall offered to defend his interim belt against Pereira.
In a recent video, Aspinall expressed his desire to face Alex Pereira. The Brit said that he is not one to call out opponents who are in lower weight categories, but he would welcome the matchup.
As rumors about a Pereira fight began to spread, Aspinall stated: “If he wants it, I’ll do it.” “But on record, let me say I’m no bully.”
