As of Tues Feb 14, Michel Pereira has entered the UFC’s Welterweight top 15 ahead of his scheduled bout on March 25. Pereira was originally intended to fight #8 Sean Brady, before Brady pulled out citing a groin injury. Pereira debuts in the rankings as #14, above Li Jingliang, and below Neil Magny.
Michel Pereira’s Next Fight
Whilst no new opponents have been announced, possible fights could include:
- Michael Chiesa
- Vincente Luque
- Li Jingliang
Many opponents above Pereira have scheduled bouts, so choice is scarce. One thing is for certain, the UFC is grooming Pereira for a top-10 spot, giving him a rank before his big break. He’s one to watch, insane athleticism, aggression, and entertainment value.
