The former Glory kickboxing champion, Alex Pereira is all set to make a comeback inside the Octagon against Brazilian Middleweight striker, Bruno Silva on March 12th UFC Fight Card. Pereira announced his arrival in UFC with a flying knee knockout at UFC 268 and the former has been already receiving call-outs from fellow fighters.
The Russian UFC veteran, Krzysztof Jotko who recently secured a win against Misha Cirkunov called out Alex Pereira on Twitter and revealed Pereira was offered a fight against him which he turned down. Jotko says,
“Look at this clown, I agreed to fight you February 12 and you out here running scared fighting someone else cause you can’t wrestle. Why you scared?”
Pereria who is one of the running contenders in UFC knockout of the year 2021 replied to the veteran with his Instagram post in most unexpected manner and displayed him he is good at trash talk too.
“I had never heard of this guy Jotko,” Alex Pereira rips the UFC veteran with his reply
Alex Pereria shared an Instagram post for Jotko in which he mocked him badly saying, “I had never heard of this guy Jotko, but my manager talked to me and we came to the conclusion that he was totally meaningless and uninteresting of an opponent,”
“Why fight someone who only puts on boring fights? A veteran of almost 30 fights who isn’t even ranked? He’ll try to grab me the entire time. I want an opponent that puts on a show like me, not a girlfriend. I’m already married.”
In the same post Pereira added, “He also disrespectfully calls me a clown? If I had his fighting style I’d be looking for another job… maybe at the circus.”
