The welterweight fighter also trash talks his opponents during the fight and showboats a lot. While it does get under the skin of most opponents, ‘Khaos’ has vowed that Pereira will pay for his actions if here were to try something. 

During the final face-off, Pereira surprised everyone. He rolled onto the stage and then lay down on his back. ‘Demolidor’ executed two kip-ups before getting up to his feet. He then proceeded to have an intense face-off with his opponent Kalinn ‘Khaos’ Williams.

‘Khaos’ on the other hand has secured 55% of his wins via T/KO. Most recently, he took on a fellow knockout artist in Abdul Razak Alhassan last month. It took ‘Khaos’ all of 30 seconds to knockout Alhassan out cold and move to 8-0. 

In his 2 UFC fights, Williams has landed an astounding 15.79 significant strikes per minute and has absorbed just 3.16 in return. His cumulative UFC fight time is just 57 seconds, and it is another indicator of him being a finisher. This may show that he will look to capitalize on any lapse in concentration if Pereira showboats.
