Michel Pereira made a statement in his middleweight debut on Saturday when he steamrolled Andre Petroski at UFC Fight Night 230.

After weight-cutting issues forced him up from welterweight, Pereira (28-11 , 7-2 UFC) showed what he's capable of at maximum efficiency when he landed a massive right hand that dropped Petroski (10-2 MMA, 5-1 UFC) before swarming for the TKO stoppage just 66 seconds into the bout at the UFC Apex.

After the fight, Pereira said he plans to remain at 185 pounds, and he wants to make a quick return to the octagon.

“Five canceled fights, I've had so much adversity,” Pereira told Michael Bisping through an interpreter during his post-fight interview. “I think I need to stay at middleweight. … I need one more fight. One weeks. Two weeks.”
