Kalinn Williams arguably stole the show at UFC Vegas 14. ‘Khaos Williams’ could not have asked for a better performance against a dangerous adversary in Abdul Razak Alhassan. After a stunning performance, ‘The American Fighter’ has wasted no time in securing a quick turnaround fight against Michael Pereira.
The welterweight showdown between the two men is set to take palace on December 19. Both men are currently unranked in the UFC. A win in December will play a huge role in moving up the ranks at 170 pounds as they chase champion Kamaru Usman.

‘Khaos’ made his UFC debut this February with a stunning KO win over Alex Morono. In his next fight, he took on the extremely dangerous Abdul Razak Alhassan, who had finished all of his opponents thus far in the UFC.
It took ‘Khaos’ just 30 seconds and one punch through the guard of Alhassan to knock him out cold in one of the most spectacular knockouts seen this year.
‘Demolidor’ on the other hand, made his debut in May 2019 with a stunning flying knee KO over Danny Roberts. He then succumbed to a loss against Tristan Connelly and Diego Sanchez. Most recently, he secured a submission win over Zelim Imadaev.
A win against ‘Demolidor’ would move Williams to 3-0 for the year. An excellent start to his UFC career. It would also get him closer to a ranking in the top 15 of one of the most stacked divisions in the UFC.
For Pereira, a win against ‘Khaos’ who is coming off a spectacular knockout would give him some recognition and also move him to 2-0 in the UFC. Furthermore, it would put him on track for a rank in the top 15.
