GLORY middleweight champ Alex 'Poatan' Pereira wins the GLORY lightheavyweight title@
becomes the first undisputed Glory kickboxing double champion after winning a 5 round war !!! defeated Artem Vakhitov on a (very close call) split decision.
Alex is not the only one that holds 2 titles at Glory, (middleweight and light heavy weight). Robin van Roosmalen was both a lightweight and featherweight Glory champion, just not at the same time. Alex holds both titles at the same time.
Alex recently won his mma debut on k.o. at another organisation and rumors that UFC wants him too, lets see what the future holds for this amazing talent,
his sister Aline Pereira fought at the same event Glory 77 super bantam title fight vs Tiffany Van Soest and fought like a lion but Van Soest showed her years of experience and that she's still far ahead in this game@
In a post interview after he was asked who he wants next Alex said: 'before this fight Rico said that i wouldn win, so maybe i can challenge Rico now for the heavy weight title'
after Rico responded in his post interview: 'i havent seen the whole fight but it was close call', watch the fights back, Im on a different level''
