Middleweight champion Alex ‘Po Atan’ Pereira is the winner of the GLORY 58 CHICAGO award for ‘Performance of the Night’, according to Glorykickboxing.com.
The middleweight world champion defended his belt with a clear unanimous decision victory in the evening’s main event.
Every judge had Pereira as the winner of the fight, with his fourth-round knockdown of Marcus sealing the deal.
It was Pereira’s third defense of the belt and follows back-to-back wins over Yoursi Belgaroui. Pereira is now on a four-fight win streak.
Post-fight, he sent out a challenge to light-heavyweight champion Artem Vakhitov for a “champion vs champion” showdown.
