Alex Pereira became the third fighter to be inducted into the GLORY Kickboxing Hall of Fame, which was another honor for his expanding CV.

Before committing himself fully to MMA, the Brazilian served as a two-division champion in GLORY, having won the middleweight and light heavyweight crowns. He is inducted into the GLORY Hall of Fame alongside fellow GLORY luminaries Semmy Schilt and “Bazooka” Joe Valtellini.

“Alex Pereira was one of the greatest champions in GLORY history,” Scott Rudmann, co-founder and Vice Chairman of GLORY, said in a press release. “His accomplishments in the GLORY ring speaks for themselves, as the only man ever hold the champions belt in two weight classes simultaneously.

“Alex continues to make huge waves in combat sports with his successful shift to MMA, and he continues to bring awareness back to the stand-up combat. He devotes time and money to community service in his home country of Brazil, and he is a wonderful guy, always humble about his enormous accomplishments. We’re proud to have in the GLORY Hall of Fame.”

Pereira has an 11-4 record while fighting for GLORY, where he also set a record for the most championship defenses in middleweight history.

Naturally, throughout their time competing in GLORY, Pereira and Israel Adesanya had two memorable matches in which the latter emerged victorious. In their rematch, Pereira decisively defeated Adesanya via unanimous decision after winning their first bout.
