  • Alexander Volkanovski predicts Alex Pereira will stop Jiri Prochazka at UFC 303
  • “The Great” thinks “Poatan” is physically and mentally ready

Alexander Volkanovski sees Alex Pereira stopping Jiri Prochazka once again in their rematch at UFC 303.

Volk goes for Alex

Speaking on his official YouTube channel, “The Great” weighed in on the upcoming light heavyweight title rematch between “Poatan” and “BJP.” For Volk, both fighters are willing to push themselves to the limit but he is leaning towards Pereira.


According to Volkanovski, Pereira has already proven how dangerous he is on the feet but the Brazilian champ’s incredible work ethic will also play a role in his victory.

“I’m going to go KO TKO: Alex Pereira,” Volkanovski said. “Again, it’s still a pick of fight because they’re so dangerous, both very unorthodox, both take a lot of risks so anything can happen but you see a lot of footage of Alex Pereira sparring everywhere all over the world. Boxers, kickboxers, MMA fighters, no matter where he goes, so even when he’s doing tours, he’s sparring.”

“I think he’s going to be okay, he’s a very composed type of fighter,” he added. “The stress levels won’t get him tight, he won’t get fatigue so I’m going to lean towards Alex Pereira. I think he’s more of a safer bet on this one for the finish.”

An impromptu rematch

Pereira boldly stepped in to fill the void Conor McGregor left to save UFC 303. This led to an impromptu title fight rematch between “Poatan” and Prochazka. In the first fight, Pereira finished “BJP” within two rounds to become the new light heavyweight champion.

After UFC 303, “Poatan” is looking forward to take a short break and fighting again before the year ends, possibly at the Madison Square Garden in New York. UFC 303 is finally happening this weekend at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
