Alex Pereira’s Contract Would Reportedly Allow Him To Fight At UFC 301 If He Knocks Out Jamahal Hill At UFC 300

Alex Pereira has made it clear that he wants to fight at the UFC 301 event in Brazil and it appears that might actually happen.

“Since I was already talking to the UFC about UFC Brazil and it’s something that was already kind of agreed but didn’t happen, there’s this possibility,” Pereira told his fans about the possibility of fighting on a three weeks notice at UFC 301. “The UFC likes to see me fighting. I think that would be a good idea if all goes right. If I win and I’m not injured, I would ask for that. But one step at a time. The focus now is to win and defend this belt.”

On his “weighing in” podcast, former MMA fighter Josh Thompson revealed that he’s heard that Pereira has clause in his contract that would allow him to fight at UFC 301 if he quickly knocks out Hill at UFC 300.

“I also heard that if Alex Pereira gets out of his UFC 300 fight with Jamahal Hill, he wants to be on that card [UFC 301]. Apparently, that was part of his contract negotiation. If he gets the win and he comes out healthy, he’s allowed to fight on that card. Yeah, that was part of, I guess, apparently, his agreement to fight on [UFC] 300.”

While Pereira seems superhuman at times, it would be tough for him to find an opponent on three weeks’ notice to face him unless the UFC already has an opponent picked out.

Currently Alexandre Pantoja and Steve Erceg will be the main event at this time in Brazil.
