Alex Pereira appears to be in stable condition despite his defeat at UFC 287. In the main event of the evening, Pereira, who had never lost in the octagon, suffered a knockout in the second round at the hands of his longstanding rival, Israel Adesanya. In response to this setback, Pereira shared a message on Sunday expressing his gratitude to his supporters and assuring them that he is healthy after his first MMA knockout defeat. Furthermore, he shared a backstage video that depicted a respectful exchange between himself and Adesanya, both of whom transitioned from kickboxing to MMA and became champions.

“I’m just here to let u know that I’m fine,” Pereira tweeted. “I want to thank my family, my team and all the people who are supporting me during my journey. Now I just have to rest and continue with the plans that are already on motion. Thanks god”

It is unclear what the future holds for Pereira, as his next move remains uncertain. While the MMA series between Pereira and Adesanya is currently tied with one win each, Pereira has an advantage of 3-1 if we factor in their previous kickboxing bouts. UFC president Dana White hinted at the possibility of Pereira moving up to 205 pounds, but others have suggested booking an MMA trilogy fight to bring their ongoing rivalry to a definitive conclusion.

Adesanya has now avenged his previous loss to Pereira, earning him his second middleweight championship and improving his record to 8-1 in UFC title fights at 185 pounds.

Adesanya’s triumph solidifies his status as one of the all-time greats at middleweight, especially since he was finally able to achieve a crucial win over Pereira. With their past encounters, it’s possible that they might face each other again soon, but for now, Adesanya should relish his moment of glory.
