Anthony Smith “would love” to fight Alex Pereira at light heavyweight, but thinks the Brazilian will struggle at 205lbs.

Anthony Smith: “Yeah, I would love that fight. I’m a big fan of Alex, I’m a big kickboxing fan so I knew who Alex Pereira was before he even came to the MMA side. I was excited when I seen him get booked at LFA, I didn’t suspect he’d be on the regional scene very long just because of the type of athlete he is. I think the same problems he would have outside of Israel Adesanya at 185, he’s going to have at 205. I’m a huge Israel Adesanya fan, I don’t want to ever take anything away from that guy. But, if Izzy is blast-doubling you and controlling you on the ground, a guy like Rakic, or Ankalaev or Blachowicz or myself are going to give you the same problem.”
