UFC 291 results: Alex Pereira survives early scare to eke out split decision win over Jan Blachowicz A new light heavyweight title contender has emerged after Alex Pereira picked up a hard fought split decision win over Jan Blachowicz in the UFC 291 co-main event.
Nothing came easy over three rounds but Pereira survived a scare with Blachowicz stuck on his back following a takedown early in the fight. Once he got back on his feet in the second round, Pereira started connecting with a nasty leg kick and ultimately the better overall strikes with an exhausted Blachowicz just unable to exchange with him shot for shot.
It was a close fight throughout all 15 minutes but in the end two judges scored the fight 29-28 for Pereira with the third just giving the same 29-28 score to Blachowicz. That was still enough for Pereira to get the win as he moves to 1-0 at light heavyweight with hopes his second fight will come with a title on the line.
