Michel Pereira Says: "Jorge Masvidal Beware, You Are Next!"

Michel Pereira wants to lay claim to being the BMF of UFC.

Pereira was on cloud nine following his win over Zelim Imadaev at UFC Vegas 9. It was a superb outing in which Pereira stumbled Imadaev with all manners of powerful strikes. He even partially landed a showtime kick. Questionable rear-naked choke finish aside, it was a possible 10-8 performance across all three rounds. A hyped-up Pereira called out Jorge Masvidal in his post-fight interview with Jon Anik.

"Dana White, Sean Shelby, I want the BMF belt," Pereira said. "Jorge Masvidal, be ready; you are next. AH! WOO!"

Masvidal is currently linked to a potential BMF rematch with Nate Diaz in early 2021.

UFC Vegas 9 took place at the UFC Apex in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, September 5. The event was headlined by ranked heavyweights Overeem and Augusto Sakai. The card aired on ESPN+. Keep up with Fightful for all your fight night coverage.
