According to MMA fighting, Alex Periera talks about the quick championship defending turnaround possibility on his YouTube channel: “Since I was already talking to the UFC about UFC Brazil and it’s something that was already kind of agreed but didn’t happen, there’s this possibility. The UFC likes to see me fighting. I think that would be a good idea if all goes well. If I win and I’m not injured, I would ask for that. But one step at a time. The focus now is to win and defend this belt.”

Which UFC turnaround time is the fastest in history?

The UFC has given the limelight to some of the greatest female athletes, including Ronda Rousey, Valentina Shevchenko, Amanda Nunes, etc. These champion fighters were known to defend their titles within a 2-3-month timeframe during their prime. However, there is also an active fighter in the UFC who has beaten all of them at one record where courage and desire both play an important role.

Loppy Godinez is the 30-year-old Mexican fighter who set the record in 2021 for the quickest turnaround in UFC history. In just 7 days, she fought twice in the modern era of MMA. First Loppy fought Silvana Gómez Juárez on October 9, 2021, winning the bout via armbar. Then, within 7 days, she took another fight against Luana Carolina, but the bout resulted in a unanimous decision loss.

Now it will be interesting to see a champion named Alex Periera trying to break the record for winning. So far, Ronda Rousey has tried on 56 days notice, but Alex is the champion, going for the biggest attempt.
