Alex Pereira is a well-vetted competitor. Israel Adesanya is also. Adesanya shared a video of the two fighters crossing paths at an airport.

From their kickboxing days, UFC stars Israel Adesanya and Alex Pereira have always been in competition. Alex Pereira, aka “Poatan”, has always been the winner over Adesanya. He has beaten Adesanya 3 times: twice in kickboxing, and once in MMA octagon. Israel Adesanya made the transition to UFC in 2018. In his UFC 221 debut, he won in the second round against Rob Wilkinson. Adesanya became the UFC Middleweight Champion, and one of most recognizable names in both the division and promotion.

Alex Pereira made his debut in 2021. He quickly rose to the top of the UFC rankings. Pereira has become the UFC Middleweight champion in just one year, with only three fights. In that title bout, he also won his third fight against Adesanya.

However, Adesanya came back strong. Adesanya recently defeated Pereira by knockout in the second round at UFC 287. Adesanya regained his UFC title, becoming a two-time Middleweight champion.

Now they have broken the internet by their chance encounter at the Los Angeles Airport. Both fighters posted on social media about their chance encounter. Adesanya shared on Twitter a video showing Alex Pereira flexing his arm at him. Pereira shared a video with Adesanya in which they exchanged pleasantries. He wrote “Guess Who I Met at the Airport?” UFC Featherweight Championship Alexander Volkanovski appeared behind them.

Fans want a trilogy of fights as Israel Adesanya meets Alex Pereira at the airport

The netizens were ecstatic to see that the two fighters had met at the airport. Adesanya had engaged Pereira in a verbal battle over Twitter following the UFC 287. Fans are now demanding a three-fight series to end the debate, as both fighters have won each other’s fights in the UFC. Here are some reactions from fans to Israel Adesanya’s Twitter video.

The trilogy fight that fans want is unlikely to happen anytime soon. Alex Pereira moved up to the Light-Heavyweight Division. The former UFC Light Heavyweight Champ Jan Blachowicz is set to face ‘Poatan.
