Alex “Poatan” Pereira might just make a return at UFC 300, according to Michael Bisping. The current light heavyweight champion was last seen inside the Octagon UFC 295, where he took on Jiri Prochazka for the title. The Brazilian won the fight and thus achieved a rare feat of a becoming a champion in two different weight classes. With UFC 300 still in need of a blockbuster fight, Bisping feels that Pereira might just get a nod ahead. In his recent YouTube video, Bisping revealed the reason as to why the 36-year-old should feature at the PPV event.

Bisping said: ” A lot of people are thinking right, but there’s one name that springs to mind. There’s one name that it has to be. Alex Pereira. It’s gotta be Alex Pereira, of course it is. But who is going to be against Alex Pereira? If you look at all the people that aren’t booked or the champions. Alex Pereira last fought in November, okay. That would be six five months, whatever it is. It’s a perfect return. Pereira has taken over the sport in kind of like a fashion that Conor McGregor did.
