(Video) WTH: UFC champ Alex Pereira plays an accordion on stage

Alex Pereira is the reigning UFC light heavyweight champion, and has a plethora of talents beyond his dominance in the Octagon. Alongside his impressive combat skills, Pereira has various hobbies. This ranges from culinary arts to archery. Surprisingly, one of his lesser-known talents includes proficiency in playing the accordion.

Fresh from his spectacular victory over former titleholder Jamahal Hill at UFC 300, Pereira captivated audiences with an unexpected performance on stage. He recently gave a demonstration of his adeptness with the accordion.

The video of Pereira playing the accordion went viral on social media, with MMA fans praising Pereira’s multifaceted talent. Some of the comments are as follows:

“What can’t he do? Chama 🗿”

“just look at this man’s performance in ANYTHING”

Pereira aspires for more challenges in the UFC, including a potential matchup with Tom Aspinall. Following his victorious defense of the 205-pound crown, Pereira expressed his desire for a heavyweight bout against the division’s interim champion. However, the proposed date of May 4 appears improbable since Dana White is not very keen on letting Pereira compete in the UFC heavyweight division.

Pereira’s next bout inside the Octagon is speculated to be against the formidable Magomed Ankalaev, currently ranked second in the division. Ankalaev’s remarkable winning streak in the UFC is backed by his recent victory over Johnny Walker. This positions him as a formidable challenger for Pereira.

Alternatively, Jiri Prochazka remains a contender for the title opportunity following his remarkable comeback victory over Aleksandar Rakic. Although Prochazka has previously tasted defeat against Pereira, his captivating combat style could still attract attention from UFC audiences.

While Prochazka and Ankalaev present compelling matchups, Pereira’s potential clash with Aspinall holds considerable intrigue for fans and the promotion alike. Aspinall’s rising fame combined with Pereira’s star power could make this matchup a lucrative option for the UFC.
