Aline Pereira Will Face a Tough Test in Her MMA Debut

Aline Pereira (6-2-0) will face a tough test in her mixed martial arts debut when she steps into the cage with Helen Peralta. Most fans will recognize Peralta as a member of The Ultimate Fighter 30 cast that pit coaches Amanda Nunes and Julianna Pena against one another. 

With a record of 5-3 (7-3 with bare-knuckle fights included) in her career, Peralta is a tough-as-nails scrapper who has competed for Invicta FC and Bare Knuckle Fighting Championship. Her biggest win came against Christine Ferea, the current BKFC women’s flyweight champion, at BFKC 7 in 2019. She also holds a victory over current UFC fighter Cheyanne Vilismas. 

You can watch Aline Pereira’s MMA debut at LFA 147 on UFC Fight Pass on November 18th.
