Serving as one more providing at middleweight is a struggle between Michel Pereira and Ihor Potieria. Even Pereira ought to be preventing greater up the middleweight meals chain, the flamboyant Brazilian finds himself in a deceptively dangerous struggle towards Potieria.

Regardless of his awkward grift as “The Duelist,” Potieria is a harmful southpaw striker with sambo expertise in his again pocket. Pereira could also be on a scorching streak since leaping as much as middleweight, however he’ll have to respect each the putting and endurance of Potieria.
