Aline Pereira, sister of world middleweight champion Alex ‘Po Atan’ Pereira, to an exclusive multi-fight, multi year deal.
Born and raised in Sao Paulo alongside Alex and their three other siblings, Aline followed her brother into the martial arts. She racked went 21-3 as an amateur before turning professional, where her record currently stands at 5-1, 1 KO.
Pereira is trained by her brother and is his only student. She won a national amateur championship in her native Brazil before turning professional, where she has since competed on the country’s top platform for professional kickboxers.
Her journey will now take her overseas and into contact with the world’s top competitors.
“Power is in my family DNA. All the training I do with my brother is focused on the reality of combat in the ring. He's the best at his weight, so I'll be the best at my weight too,” she said today.
“I think GLORY will evolve me, it will take me to the next stage. I’ve been on a great path so far and I’m in a great place right now: I’ve got technique, I’ve got experience, I’ve got confidence and I am ready to leave my heart and soul inside that ring.”
The Pereira’s are making history by being the first brother-and-sister pair to be signed to GLORY.
Aline has set a goal for them to be the first siblings in GLORY history to hold belts at the same time. Now she has the chance to see if she can achieve that dream - witness her journey here in GLORY.
