This is how the UFC ranking looks: Alex Pereira climbs to second place in the pound for pound

Lto brutal performance of Alex Pereira (11-2) at UFC 303 last weekend has had his recognition beyond the bonus of 303,000 euros he received for the KO of Prochazka (30-4) or the fact of continuing to be the UFC light heavyweight champion . Yeah, rises in the latest update of the UFC pound-for-pound ranking… up to second place! Only Islam Makhachev (26-1) beats ‘Poatan’ and, in fact, he has displaced Jon Jones or Leon Edwards.

Alex Pereira landed in the UFC from the world of kickboxing to shake up the most important MMA company on the planet from top to bottom. Eight wins and only one loss. The one he had against Israel Adesanya (24-3) in the rematch held at UFC 287. After that, four consecutive victories. Whether or not there is short notice, like at UFC 300 or UFC 303, ‘Poatan’ always responds.

The Brazilian, who plans to fight before the end of 2024 again to defend the belt again (although the possibility of moving up to heavyweight in the future is still on the table), He has surpassed a myth like Jon Jones in the pound-for-pound… and a Leon Edwards who will defend his belt at UFC 304 on July 27 against Belal Muhammad.

While, Ilia Topuria maintains her fifth place in the ranking waiting to fight again and defend the belt for the first time.
