Brazilian pair Johnny Walker and Michel Pereira decided to have some fun while training

The UFC has been blessed with several Brazilian stars turning it up over the years.

Wanderlei Silva and Anderson Silva are some of the biggest names to have featured in the UFC while the MMA world has seen several champions from the South American country.

The UFC has many rising Brazilian stars in their roster too with Johnny Walker and Michel Pereira being a couple of them.

Walker fights in the Light Heavyweight division while Pereira fights in the Welterweight division. The pair recently shared a fun video of them training in capoeira and that got many talking.

While we might not see them fight as they are in different division, it is great seeing the pair trying out things in training which you probably wouldn’t see in the Octagon.

Looking for their next battles

Both Brazilians were on two-fight losing streaks before they came into their last match. However, the pair put in some great performances and got the win.

Walker defeated Ryan Spann and is now 18-5 in his MMA career. Pereira, for his part, defeated Zelim Imadaev and also won the Performance of the Night Award.

However, this was Pereira’s last fight under his latest UFC contract and he has called out Colby Covington next.

Covington defeated Tyron Woodley in impressive fashion but the American is looking for a shot at Kamaru Usman’s UFC title.

Walker was a target for Jon Jones but that all changed when the Brazilian lost to Corey Anderson and then Nikita Krylov in successive fights.

Taking on Jones would be a problem now for Walker given than Bones has moved to the Heavyweight division.

It will be interesting to see what is next for the pair but hopefully, we get to see more such training videos in the future.
