‘Demolidor’ is slated to return at UFC 291 this Saturday night against Stephen Thompson. The fight will be the biggest of the Brazilian’s career, entering riding a five-fight winning streak. Meanwhile, ‘Wonderboy’ is fresh off his win over Kevin Holland in December, snapping a two-fight skid.

For his part, Michel Pereira discussed his return at UFC 291 media day earlier today. There, he was asked about a potential fight with Michael Venom Page. A longtime Bellator fan-favorite, he announced his free agency earlier this month. The former title challenger’s contract expired after a stoppage win over Goiti Yamaguchi in March.

Nonetheless, that’s exactly that the type of fight that Michel Pereira would welcome. At media day, he admitted that a bout with Michael Venom Page is right up his alley. The Brazilian noted that the former Bellator star has a wild fight style similar to his, which would make for a fun night in the cage.

“It is a fight to think about,” Michel Pereira answered when asked about a fight with Michael Venom Page in the UFC. “I would be very happy to fight against him, if the UFC gives me something if I beat him. Like someone in the rankings, a certain spot in the rankings. Plus, that’s also a fight everyone would love to watch.”

He continued, “I always like to fight guys with the same style that I have, which is to give a show. When I see a guy trying to put on a show more than me, I want to put on an even better show. I think it would be a very fun fight for the public.”
