Pereira's manager confirmed: the fighter will not compete at UFC 301

The other day a well-known insider and journalist Ariel Helwani reported that UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira will not perform at the 301st tournament of the organization, which will be held on May 4 in Rio de Janeiro. This information was confirmed today by the fighter's manager Jorge Guimarães.

"It's not going to happen, no way, especially now that Pereira has another broken toe. He needs to go to the hospital, rest and celebrate his victory. Perhaps he could go to Brazil to watch this tournament, but Alex will not fight," - quotes Jorge MMA Fighting.

Recall, on April 14 in the main event of the UFC 300 anniversary Pereira knocked out Jamal Hill in the first round.
