Brazilian mixed martial artist, Alex Pereira is one of the biggest guys in the middleweight division, who cuts a lot of weight for his fights.

Not so long ago, UFC fans were shocked to see Alex Pereira weighing over 200 lbs during his training camp for UFC 281.

Many fans even thought Pereira would not make weight after the former kickboxing world champion struggled to make weight for UFC 281.

With only 10 minutes remaining, Alex Pereira made weight for his first UFC title fight against Israel Adesanya at MSG.

However, it was not an easy weight cut for the title challenger, who is hailed as the biggest test for the Last Stylebender.

The fans will have to wait to find out whether it plays a big role in the outcome of the fight against the middleweight champion.

Alex Pereira has not shown good cardio in his MMA career so far and this will be his first 5 round main event fight.

It's a very likely scenario where Israel Adesanya gets the better of his opponent at UFC 281 thanks to his experience inside the octagon.
