Alex Pereira Sends Scary Warning To UFC LHW Champion Jamahal Hill

Alex Pereira has his eyes set at the light heavyweight championship.

After losing the middleweight championship to Israel Adesanya at UFC 287 this past weekend, Pereira announced that he was moving up to the 205 division.

“My next fight will be at 205!” said Pereira via his YouTube channel. “I think I did my job at 185 and now I’m feeling good to go up to 205. Like I told you, when I’m feeling good, I will go up. This will be something natural, and now I think it is.

“My next opponent, I can’t tell you yet, but I will keep you updated here on my channel,” he said.

“Also, I want to make one thing clear, this division, 185, I always made weight. A lot of people had doubts, but I always fulfilled my obligation. But now is the moment to go up to the next division. This will be better for me.”

After Pereira’s announcement, Hill posted an Instagram post “Welcome can’t wait to see you,” “Come on in,” Hill while opening a door.

Pereira responded to Hill’s video by commenting “I’m coming and will kick your door in,”

It’s going to be interesting to see if Pereira gets an immediate title shot vs Hill in the coming months.
