UFC fighter Alex Perez (23-5)

MMA fighters are savages. They are the best athletes on the planet earth, however, they are also human and enjoy things just like you and me.

Alex Perez is one of the best flyweight fighters in the UFC. He is currently ranked No. 9 and is one or two fights away from fighting for the title.

Perez is on a two-fight winning streak and most recently fought in January, where he submitted Jordan Espinosa with an arm-triangle in the first round.

Perez returns this weekend at UFC 250, where he takes on No. 4 ranked Jussier Formiga. With a win, Perez will be set up for a title eliminator fight or even a title fight. He headlines the ESPN+ prelims.
