The UFC light heavyweight champion Alex Pereira is pleased with the risk he has taken to save the UFC 303 main event. Pereira will be defending his belt against Jiri Prochazka on 29th June; this replacement happened because Conor McGregor was forced to pull out because of an injury.

Accepting a fight on short notice is never easy to do; Alex Pereira looks forward to making the most of it and is confident of a victory.
