Does Alex Pereira's Zyn habit make him more relatable or raise questions about his discipline?

UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira is a name impossible to overlook these days. Stepping in on short notice to replace Conor McGregor, who got injured a few weeks before his fight with Michael Chandler, Pereira’s star power has skyrocketed. He didn’t stop there, successfully defending his title twice this year, most recently against Jiri Prochazka at UFC 303.

With each of his victories, his fan base continues to grow rapidly. Where he goes, fans can be heard chanting “Chama Chama.” However, after appearing at UFC 300 and UFC 303, Alex Pereira is now in rest mode, enjoying his vacation with his team and family. However, his fans continue to be captivated by his aura, as evidenced by this viral video.

A video uploaded by the MMA-oriented social media page “MMA Orbit” to Twitter/X shows Alex Pereira swimming with his children. As they were swimming, Pereira bumped into a group of teens and asked them for Zyn, an addictive nicotine product that is an alternative to smoking and helps reduce cravings. The video was captioned, “These guys found Alex Pereira out swimming and hooked him up with some Zyn 😭.”
