Alex Pereira is the new UFC middleweight champion after beating Israel Adesanya by 5th round TKO at UFC 281.

And this has made the division extremely exciting. For a long time, Adesanya was undefeated in the middleweight division.

However, Alex Pereira has a huge flaw that the top UFC middleweights can exploit to beat him inside the octagon.

Besides Israel Adesanya, Robert Whittaker will be a tough matchup for Alex Pereira, who got outwrestled by Adesanya in the round 3 of their fight.

Had Israel Adesanya wrestled more against Alex Pereira the outcome of that fight would have been a lot different. Whittaker's ability to mix up his wrestling with striking will give a lot of trouble to Pereira.

Khamzat Chimaev, if he decides to move upto 185, will be a nightmare matchup for Alex Pereira despite the size disadvantage.

Fans believe that Chimaev can easily take down Alex Pereira and threaten him with submissions early in the fight. Chimaev has also called out Pereira after UFC 281.

Marvin Vettori is one of the most underrated threats to the new champion Alex Pereria's middleweight title with his wrestling, strength and ability to take big shots.
