Niko Price vs Michel Pereira


  • Preview

Niko Price and Michel Pereira are facing off on the preliminary card of UFC 264 Poirier vs Mcgregor 3. This fight should be in contention for fight of the night. Niko Price is coming off of a draw against Donald Cerone (was changed in a no contest), a fight where he would have won if not for an eye poke that deducted Niko a point 14-4 with 2 NCs. Michel Pereira is coming off of a win against Khaos Williams that puts him on a 2 fight win streak, would be 3 if he didn’t DQ himself with an illegal knee against Diego Sanchez. Michel Pereira is 25-11 with 2 NCs.

These two are both exciting high-volume fighters although Michel Pereira has reeled it in heavily after being criticized for the unnecessary flashy antics inside the cage. Both of these fighters possess power and are freak athletes. With Michel Pereira we don’t quite know what we're getting yet, old wreckless unpredictable Pereira or the new hesitant Pereira that we saw against Kaos Williams. Pereira’s best weapon is his athleticism which has allowed him to take massive risks and narrowly escape with his life. Michel Pereira needs to find a middle ground because he won’t keep getting away against guys in the top of the division like Usman and Colby. Niko Price has a real solid chance as I can see Pereira getting caught in the huge openings he offers with Price's high-motor chasing him down. Despite the high-motor, you don’t have the worry of Niko Price gassing himself out compared to Pereira pulling backflips every 10 seconds either way this should be a fun one.
