Pereira was ranked #1 in the kickboxing middleweight and light-heavyweight rankings as of February 2021.[7]

Early lifeEdit

Growing up in a favela, Pereira dropped out of middle school to begin working in a tire shop at the age of 12.[8] Influenced by his colleagues, he began drinking and eventually became an alcoholic.[8] In 2009 he began training kickboxing in order to get rid of his addiction.[9]

Kickboxing careerEdit

He won the Glory 14: Zagreb - Middleweight Contender Tournament in Zagreb, Croatia on March 8, 2014, beating Dustin Jacoby by first-round knockout in the semi-finals and Sahak Parparyan by majority decision in the final.[10][11]

It was announced during the Glory 15: Istanbul broadcast that Pereira would be one of eight fighters competing in the Glory 17: Los Angeles - Last Man Standing middleweight tournament in Inglewood, California, United States on June 21, 2014.[12][13] He lost to eventual champion Artem Levin by unanimous decision in the quarter-finals to exit the tournament.[14][15][16]

He was scheduled to fight a rematch with César Almeida during WGP Kickboxing 25 for the vacant belt WGP Middleweight title. He defeated Almeida by decision.[17] He defended his WGP KB title with a second-round KO of Maycon Silva at WGP KB 40.[18]

In his next five fights, Pereira went on a 4–1 run, losing only to the pound for pound great Artur Kyshenko.[19] During this run Pereira achieved his most famous victories, defeating the future UFC Middleweight champion Israel Adesanya twice: once by unanimous decision, and once by a counter left hook KO.[20][21][22]

Pereira won the Glory Middleweight title with a unanimous decision win against Simon Marcus at Glory 46: China.[23]

Glory Middleweight ChampionshipEdit

Pereira met Yousri Belgaroui at the Glory 40 and Glory 49 Superfight Series,[24][25] and then in 2018 in New York Madison Square Garden at the Glory 55 for the Middleweight Title Match, where Belgaroui had received the overhand right knockout at 2:29 of Round 1.[26][27] For Pereira, it was the 28th career victory and the sixth inside the Glory ring.[24]

In November 2018, Pereira said he would pursue MMA career after his contract with Glory will expire in April 2019.[28] Eventually, Pereira re-signed with Glory with possibility to fight in the mixed martial arts also.[29]

After four straight successful Glory middleweight title defenses (against Yousri Belgaroui, Simon Marcus and Jason Wilnis),[30][31][32] Pereira moved up to fight Donegi Abena for the interim Glory Light Heavyweight Championship at Glory 68. Pereira won the fight via knockout in the third round, becoming the first double champion in Glory history.[33]

After winning the Light Heavyweight Championship, Pereira opted to defend his middleweight title against Ertugrul Bayrak at Glory Collision 2 on December 21, 2019. After largely dominating the first round, he won the bout via knockout at the end of the round.[34]

Glory Light Heavyweight ChampionshipEdit

Pereira was scheduled to challenge Artem Vakhitov for the Glory Light Heavyweight title at Glory 77.[35] Pereira won the fight by split decision, becoming the first fighter in GLORY history to simultaneously hold two belts at the same time.[36]

Pereira was later stripped of his Middleweight title.[37]

Pereira rematched Artem Vakhitov at Glory 78: Rotterdam in his first title defense.[38][39] He lost the rematch by majority decision. Pereira was deducted one point in round 4 due to repeated clinching, which was seen by many as a controversial decision by the referee.[40]

Mixed martial arts careerEdit

Early careerEdit

Transitioning from kickboxing, Pereira made his professional mixed martial arts debut in 2015, losing the fight via submission.[41] Subsequently, racking up two straight victories, Pereira announced he had signed a contract to face Diego Henrique da Silva in the Brazilian edition of Dana White's Contender Series on August 10, 2018.[42] However, the bout never materialized as Glory did not permit Pereira to compete.[43]

On October 22, 2020, news surfaced that Pereira had signed a contract with Legacy Fighting Alliance and he then made his promotional debut against Thomas Powell on November 20, 2020.[44] He won the fight via knockout in round one.[45]

Ultimate Fighting ChampionshipEdit

On September 3, 2021, Pereira signed with the UFC. He made his promotional debut against Andreas Michailidis on November 6, 2021, at UFC 268.[5] He won the fight via technical knock out in round two.[46] This win earned him a Performance of the Night award.[47]

Pereira faced Bruno Silva on March 12, 2022, at UFC Fight Night 203.[48] Pereira outstruck Silva for all three rounds and won the fight via unanimous decision.[49]

Pereira was scheduled to face Sean Strickland on July 30, 2022 at UFC 277.[50] However, the promotion decided to move the pairing to UFC 276 on July 2, 2022.[51] Pereira won the fight after knocking Strickland out in the first round.[52] This win earned him a Performance of the Night award,[53] and Crypto.com Fan Bonus of the Night third place award which paid in bitcoin of US$10,000.[54]

Pereira is scheduled to face Israel Adesanya on November 12, 2022 for the UFC Middleweight Championship at UFC 281.[55]

Personal lifeEdit

Alex Pereira is part of the Indigenous peoples in Brazil.[8] Pereira has a younger sister, Aline Pereira, who competes for Glory.[56]
