Alex Pereira won the vacant light heavyweight gold at UFC 295. “Poatan” stopped former champion Jiri Prochazka at the 4:08 mark of the second round at Madison Square Garden. In recent times, Pereira has become a fan-favorite fighter. He instantly captures attention on social media.
A new video has surfaced over X that showed him hilariously testing out new shoe merchandise with combo moves of jabs, hooks, and light kicks. In the video, a sociable Alex Pereira shadow-boxed and kicked in the air while wearing new shoes at a store, smiling. Pereira’s strong social media presence makes him the talk of the town whenever he posts something on social media.
In the aftermath of the title win, “Poatan” has remained in a jovial state of mind. Usually, he remains stoic and silent. This happy version of Pereira remains a fresh sight for the fans. The fighter also visited Joe Rogan in Texas recently.
Pereira is on a back-to-back win streak with his victory over Prochazka. He last defeated Jan Blachowicz via split decision at UFC 291. The recent Glory Kickboxing Hall of Fame inductee is on top of the world. He will one day become a Hall of Famer in the UFC due to his accolades and accomplishments.
Alex Pereira reveals unconventional defense to kicks
Alex “Poatan” Pereira has posted many training videos on social media. Pereira has graced with a handful of appearances over the past weeks, some even resulting in callbacks and banters, including Israel Adesanya and Khamzat Chimaev.
Recently, though, the fighter posted a short sparring pad session. The video captured him landing well-connected shots. Pereira then proceeded to defend an incoming leg kick that could have resulted in a slicer with a retro-kick of his own. The backside kick, or “Rabona” in soccer terms, is unique. The unconventional move has amazed many fans.
While the combo is nothing new but a very prominent Muay Thai practice, the fighter has instigated quite the sentiment in his favor. A handful, however, has invoked cult-classic combative movies like “Ong Bak” to state that this is nothing new and Pereira didn’t do anything new. Regardless, the fighter seemingly keeps in shape, ready for whatever comes next.
