Michel Pereira was looking to take down replacement opponent Tristan Connelly by any means necessary at UFC Vancouver Saturday night, and we mean that almost literally. Pereira randomly pulled out a wild backflip and followed it up with some bizarre parkour moves, and even an attempted flying knee to the head of Connelly, all to no avail.
Connelly did seem caught off guard by the sudden burst of moves from Pereira, but at most he simply fell backwards a bit.
While he did land his superman punch to start the combo, the rest of his moves fell short. Pereira was hoping to make for one entertaining K.O. in the first round against Connelly, but he ultimately failed to connect.
