Bruno Silva vs. Alex Pereira: A Look At Their Resumes

Silva has looked as sharp as ever the past few years. He is riding a seven-fight winning streak. Bruno hasn’t suffered a loss since late 2016. He has finished all of his opponents during his winning streak. Silva is a former M-1 Global Middleweight Champion.

As for Pereira, he has gone from kickboxing royalty to being thrust inside the Octagon. He got off to a blazing start, stopping Andreas Michailidis via second-round TKO in his UFC debut back in November. That bout was featured on the UFC 268 prelims inside Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Alex Pereira is a decorated kickboxer. While the mainstream may only recognize him for knocking out Israel Adesanya in a kickboxing match, there’s much more to Pereira’s resume. He has won the Glory championship in two different weight classes. He’s held the middleweight and light heavyweight gold. At middleweight, Pereira had five successful title defenses.

The March 12 UFC Fight Night card is shaping up to be a good one. A light heavyweight scrap between Magomed Ankalaev and Thiago Santos is penciled in for the card. Fight fans will also get to see Song Yadong vs. Marlon Moraes. Also planned is Guido Cannetti vs. Kris Moutinho and Javid Basharat vs. Trevin Jones.
