Aline Pereira, younger sister of Alex Pereira, has won her first mixed martial arts (MMA) fight.
Pereira scored a unanimous decision win at LFA 160 on Friday (June 16, 2023), picking apart and battering Chelsea Conner from inside the Owensboro Sportscenter in Owensboro, Kentucky.
Check out the highlights below:
It was one-way traffic for 15 minutes as Pereira battered Conner, basically using her for target practice and working on her takedown defense. The Brazilian was close to finishing Conner in the second round, but ran out of time.
She eventually earned 30x27s across the board from the ringside judges.
Pereira lost her professional MMA debut last year at LFA 147 when she was out-grappled and dropped by BKFC fighter and The Ultimate Fighter (TUF) 30 contestant, Helen Peralta.
Pereira, 32, is following in her older brother's footsteps as a former GLORY kickboxer-turned MMA fighter (they both lost their MMA debuts, too). Alex returns to action at UFC 291 in July, making his Light Heavyweight debut against Jan Blachowicz for the first time since losing UFC’s Middleweight title at UFC 287.
