Daniel Cormier Shares Top Impressions of Alex Pereira at UFC 295

Knockouts to Championships

As UFC 295 approaches, the anticipation for the clash between Alex Pereira and Jiri Prochazka intensifies. This Saturday night, inside the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City, Pereira aims to claim the UFC light heavyweight championship in his 11th professional MMA fight.

The storyline is set against the backdrop of Jamahal Hill's unfortunate departure from the title scene due to a ruptured Achilles, paving the way for a new champion.

Daniel Cormier, a seasoned figure in the MMA world, recently shared his admiration for Alex Pereira in an interview with Damon Martin of MMAFighting. Cormier expressed awe at Pereira's rapid ascent to success at the highest level of the UFC.

"Alex Pereira impresses me more than most fighters in the UFC. With less than 10 fights in his career, maybe 10 at most, he's already been a UFC middleweight champion. Now, he's stepping up to fight for the light heavyweight championship. He doesn't have the extensive experience, but he knows how to kickbox, and he's turned that into three title fights in just a few years," Cormier remarked.

Pereira's journey in the UFC began three years ago with his debut in New York City. Now, he finds himself on the verge of a third championship opportunity, showcasing his remarkable skill and adaptability in the world of mixed martial arts.

Daniel Cormier tips his hat to Alex Pereira, recognizing the extraordinary feat of a fighter who has navigated his way to the top echelons of the UFC in such a short span. As fight night approaches, all eyes will be on Pereira and Prochazka as they vie for the coveted UFC light heavyweight championship.
