Former Glory Kickboxing two-division champion, Alex Pereira has booked his second UFC fight against knockout artist Bruno Silva.
Silva went 3-0 during 2021 winning all of his fights via knockout.
Beating Wellington Turman, Andrew Sanchez, and Jordan Wright.
But this will be the first fight that Silva doesn’t have the striking advantage in.
Despite having 22 wins in MMA and a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu black belt, Silva has never won via submission.
Alex Pereira is coming off a stunning debut victory against Andreas Michailidis via flying knee.
But not without issue, Michailidis was able to get 3 minutes 59 seconds of control on Pereira.
Controlling him for almost the entire first round.
I believe this will be the best course of victory, for Silva to take down Pereira and control him on the ground.
Silva has proved that he has brutal ground and pound, winning by knockout from ground and pound against Wellington Turman in his debut.
For Pereira, it’s simple to keep the fight standing and use his 6-inch reach advantage to keep the powerful Silva at bay.
If you want to watch this fight, it’s on the main card of UFC Fight Night: Santos Vs Ankalaev on March 12th, 2022 at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas.
