Fans Defend Alex Pereira’s Disrespectful ‘Sleeping Stunt’ to Anthony Smith’s Dismay at UFC 301 – “Here’s Why No One Likes Smith”

Anthony Smith has continued Alex Pereira for quite some time. He called the Brazilian a one-dimensional mediocre fighter. That undoubtedly didn’t go down well with fight fans. Unfortunately, Smith’s problems were just beginning. Smith recently made a comment that drew a lot of response from the warring community.

The story started during the main card events on UFC301as fans witnessed from Smith Vitor Petrino with an impressive guillotine choke within the first few minutes. But the worries started when the ‘Poatan’ pretended to be asleep during Smith’s introduction.

‘Lionheart’ recently had a conversation with Michael Bisping, in which he pointed out the two-time champion’s sleeping stunt. Soon, Smith awkwardly shifted the conversation to the Brazilian’s attire, as ‘The Count’ commented on how Smith put Pereira to sleep. “What was he wearing? It looked like a vest. Like without a shirt underneath. I was like, ‘Okay’”said the Texas-born fighter.
