After a dominating performance over Zelim Imadaev, Michel Pereira put his post fight interview to good use and called out BMF title holder, Jorge Masvidal. Pereira submitted Imadaev at 4:39 in the third round and secured the victory. After the fight, a very energetic Michel Pereira used his mic time to attempt to move up in the ranks and call out a UFC superstar…
Does Michel Pereira Have UFC Star Power?
Although going 2-2 in his last four fights, Pereira is one of the most exciting UFC fighters on the roster. Pereira simmered down on the gymnastics on Saturday and put on a clinic against Imadaev. If Pereira sticks to the scrips and fights the way he did this weekend he will move up in the UFC rankings. MMA fans love spectacles, and Pereira puts on a show every time he enters the octagon.
It will be interesting to see who the UFC decides to pair Pereira up with next. In the meantime, I don’t seem them booking Pereira vs Masvidal any time soon. Jorge Masvidal is most likey fighting Diaz next for the BMF title, but I’d love to eventually see Jorge take on Pereira. Masvidal has star power, but Pereira is in the spotlight now with his impressive victory over Imadaev. The slaps, the kicks off the cage, and the absolute domination over Imadaev was everything MMA fans love to see.
