Tom Aspinall Highlights Which UFC 303 Fighter Has The ‘Best Strike In MMA’ Right Now

Interim UFC Heavyweight Champion Tom Aspinall sees Alex Pereira’s patented left hook as a step above the rest when it comes to the current crop of strikes in mixed martial arts.

Pereira will be back in action this weekend at UFC 303, a pay-per-view event headlining International Fight Week that the reigning light heavyweight titleholder has saved on short notice.

Following the withdrawal of Conor McGregor from his scheduled clash with Michael Chandler, “Poatan” accepted the call offering a rematch with Jiří Procházka in the June 29 main event.

And when “BJP” is stood across from the Brazilian again, Aspinall believes he’ll squaring off with the most dangerous strike in the sport…

Aspinall On Pereira: ‘Literally Touches Anybody With The Left Hook & They Go Over’

During the latest episode of his Fight Lab show on TNT Sports’ YouTube channel, Aspinall previewed this weekend’s PPV event and assessed the two men tasked with closing out proceedings inside the T-Mobile Arena.

The Englishman paid particular attention to the champ’s leading weapon, which has helped him close the show against the likes of Israel Adesanya, Sean Strickland, and Jamahal Hill.

“If we can just add in about Alex Pereira with his left hook. It is probably the best strike in MMA at the moment,” Aspinall said. “He literally touches anybody with the left hook and they go over. Look at that…he has absolute dynamite in it.”

Having slept “Sweet Dreams” with it last time out, Pereira will look to further prove why he’s become renowned for the power in his left hook when he runs it back with Procházka at T-Mobile Arena this weekend.

The pair will top a lineup in Las Vegas that also features the likes of former title challengers Brian Ortega, Anthony Smith, and Mayra Bueno Silva, as well as undefeated welterweight contender Ian Garry.
