Watch how Alex Pereira goes at it with a light heavyweight Glory kickboxer

A video of Alex Pereira sparring has surfaced on YouTube.

‘Poatan’ turned the middleweight division upside down last month by beating long-reigning champion Israel Adesanya at UFC 281. Pereira was two minutes away from losing his world title opportunity before his power was too much for Adesanya to handle.

All eyes in the middleweight divisions are now on Pereira. The 35-year-old was recently seen sparring hard in a YouTube video posted by TheMacLife. It’s not confirmed whether the footage is new or old, but ‘Poatan’ still managed to catch the attention of MMA fans.

The training video showed Pereira sparring with GLORY light heavyweight Clyde Brunswijk. ‘Poatan’ went after Brunswijk with his relentless pressure and vicious power. The middleweight champion displayed his composure while showing why he’s one of the most dangerous strikers in the UFC.

Going into UFC 281, most people knew Pereira could pull off an upset because of his power. With that being said, seeing ‘Poatan’ become a UFC champion in only four promotional fights was crazy to watch. The question is, who’s next for the 35-year-old Brazilian?
