“Hey bro, be careful with the people who are giving you this idea. The same person who is advising you that he tried the same thing on me and I didn’t do it because I’m not stupid. “Everyone knows that when they gave you the victory it was because Glory knew that would be my last fight in the Organization and they didn’t want me to give up the belt!” said Pereira.

In an attempt to target the light heavyweight champion, Vakhitov took shots at the entire LHW division, “His biggest weakness is that he’s all attack, no defense. Because of his lack of defense, he’s open to taking a lot of hits to the head if he’s up against a skilled striker.” -Vajitov said. He added, “These other guys haven’t done well against Alex because their punching isn’t high enough. They have no confidence against him and think he’s invincible, so in their hearts they’re already defeated before the fight even starts.”

Challenging Pereira once again, Vakhitov said “But I’ve beaten him before in pure striking competition, and I’m sure I’ll do it again if we can get our trilogy fight in the UFC.” The old rivalry seems to be brewing once again in the realm of combat sports.
