Pereira: "Taking fights on short notice is not new to me"

UFC bantamweight championAlex Pereira commented on the decision to accept a rematch with Jiri Prochazka on short notice.

"Of course, it's not the best decision to take the fight on short notice, but it's not new for me. I've faced similar situations before. During my first Kick fight with Izzy in China, I had to travel to that country twice. First I was kind of on a mediaday, after which I left and came back a couple days later. That fight was, by the way, much more difficult in terms of preparation. Before the fight I had to cut weight down to 85 kilograms. And at the same time I had to make three stops on my way to China, because of which I was very tired. I arrived on time, successfully passed the weigh-in, went to the fight and won it. This is nothing new for me as I am determined. This fight is something I wanted badly. Let's go!" - Pereira was quoted as saying by Sherdog.
