Ex-UFC middleweight world champion Alex Pereira ran into Alexander Volkanovski’s doppelganger while strolling through Europa Park in Germany.
Pereira is fresh off his first career win in the light heavyweight division, dispatching former 205-pound titleholder Jan Blachowicz via a split decision at UFC 291. Now sitting in the No. 3 spot in the division, ‘Poatan’ expects to compete for the light heavyweight title the next time he steps inside the Octagon.
To celebrate his big win and impending title opportunity, Alex Pereira took some time off and visited Europa Park, a popular tourist spot in Rust, Baden-Württemberg, Germany. While there, ‘Poatan’ ran into none other than reigning UFC featherweight champion Alexander Volkanovski… Sort of.
