An exciting welterweight bout between Michel Pereira and Kalinn “Khaos” Williams is reportedly set to take place next month.
That’s according to ESPN’s Brett Okamoto who reported Saturday that the pair would collide in the UFC’s upcoming December 19 card. The bout is not made official yet but an announcement should be expected soon.

Pereira, of course, is known for his flashiness and acrobatics and is even willing to sacrifice his gas tank if he can entertain fans. The Brazilian most recently returned to the win column with a third-round submission win over Zelim Imadaev in September.
Williams, meanwhile, made headlines last week following his emphatic one-punch knockout of Abdul Razak Alhassan.
There’s bound to be a finish when he meets Pereira next month.
