Michel Pereira is all set to fight against newcomer Andre Fialho at UFC 270 inside the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. Pereira was initially scheduled to fight Muslim Salikhov at UFC Vegas 46 but due to some reason, he had to pull his name from the fight. His new challenge Fialho is a fighter from Portugal and will be making his debut for UFC. But the fighter has a lot of experience and has fought in high-level MMA promotions like PFL and Bellator.
Pereira (26-11) is on an impressive winning streak and has remained undefeated since 2020. The Brazilian has defeated good fighters like Zelim Imadaev, Khaos Williams, etc in his past bouts and will be looking forward to continuing his dominating streak. Pereira is a fighter who likes to take risks while fighting. He is a wild fighter with extreme guts. Pereira’s acrobatic skills and unconventional fighting techniques make him a hard opponent to deal with.
On the other hand, Fialho is a power puncher and dominates his fights by dealing with volume. Overall it would be an interesting fight to see for the fans.
