  • Alex Pereira doesn’t think his TKO win over Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295 was an early stoppage
  • “Poatan” is certain Israel Adesanya is not motivated enough to fight at this point

Alex Pereira is convinced that there’s no controversy in his stoppage win over Jiri Prochazka at UFC 295. He is also optimistic about facing Israel Adesanya for their much-awaited a trilogy fight.

Jiri was already out

Speaking to reporters in his post-UFC 295 presser, “Poatan” pointed out that Prochazka’s supporters may claim an early stoppage because “BJP” looked as if he was hanging on. However, Pereira said that he truly felt that Jiri got hurt and the fight will end up the same way no matter war’

“He was feeling the punches. I felt he was feeling those and when he got in, he got connected with the left hook and then the cross. Once he dropped on my legs, I think he actually fell. I started punching… I feel like he’s kind of fading away. And I think it was a good stop. I know maybe his friends, his supporters, his people, his fans try to say maybe it was not but it was the correct way,” Pereira explained.

Alex knows what Izzy truly feels inside

Right after copping the UFC’s light heavyweight title, Pereira immediately called out Adesanya. In his response, “The Last Stlybender” pulled off a hilarious answer by uploading a photo of Pereira knocked out on the floor during their match with a cartoon character hair.

For the Brazilian, none of Izzy’s antics affect him as he is ready for whatever and it was Adesanya who is lacking motivation at this point.

“I meant what I said over there,” Pereira told reporters through an interpreter. “I think I owe this to Adesanya. He motivated me at first, and the whole thing with him staying out all this time until 2027 but I think it’s a waste of talent. I think I can bring him back,” Pereira said.

“Regads with what he say, I was respectful when I say [I want him], you know. I think he doesn’t seem motivated. That’s the fight everybody wants to see so I’ll to force him to come back,” he added.

UFC president Dana White recently admitted that they might still consider a Pereira vs. Adesanya trilogy match. If nothing progresss, the UFC will be moving on and book “Poatan” against former light heavyweight champ Jamahal Hill for his first title defense.
