Middleweight title challenger Alex Pereira continues to show off his other skills ahead of the UFC 281 main event, where he will meet champion Israel Adesanya. After posting a video where he demonstrates his archery skills, ‘Poatan’ has now been seen on a rather unusual sparring session.
In a video shared by the UFC’s official account on Twitter, the Brazilian is seen standing on top of a hoverboard and smoothly cruising around while trading punches with a training partner – and not losing balance.

A two-division Glory kickboxing champion, Pereira (6-1) holds a pair of wins over Adesanya in the ring and will look to make it three for three when they meet in the Octagon. So far, the 35-year-old has scored three straight UFC wins, having defeated Sean Strickland, Bruno Silva and Andreas Michailidis.
The November 12 card is scheduled to have a women’s strawweight title fight in the co-main event, with champion Carla Esparza against former title-holder Weili Zhang.
