I'd reckon Alex Pereira with his high fight activity is the best UFC signing in the last decade more than Izzy, Khamzat and others:

Agree/Disagree?

- Reignited the Middleweight division By Challenging Izzy Adesanya
- Reignited Light Heavyweight division with his mini rivalry with Hill and Jiri
-First MW/LHW Double Champ (Modern UFC)
- Saving UFC 300, 303 with Last Second Title Fights (which usually are fan-friendly barnburners)
- Has Fan Friendly Style And Taking Badass Short Notice Fights Even While Champion

The guy is a real athlete. Knows how to take care of his body and train properly. That's why he's constantly ready to give us fights. Also not protective of his record or titles so he's always ready to go for the short-notice fights. Also a violent KO artist. Perfect fighter for fans and for the company.
 
Izzy allowed Alex to flourish (paved the way).

He's also built out of stone and jungle vines which helps injury wise.
 
No doubt. Makin the two division scramble makes the inactive fighters want to move up and down. Less fighters like him thats why UFC needs cross-promotion.

Alex allowed izzy to live

I dont understand ppl praying for a LHW Belal to show up and come grab the title from him. I really dont.
Ankalaev actually isn't as good or as proven as belal relative to his own division.

I partially agree, though if Alex never showed up there's a good chance MW would've been just Izzy beating the same heads over and over again.

Alex coming in threw MW on it's head and now we've had 4 different champions in a span of a year with interesting mini rivalries between DDP/Strickland/Izzy.

Alex = Everything Izzy IS NOT

Balsy, exciting, a killer, yet cool and humble.

The dude is everything anyone could want in a fighter:
  • HUGE FOR THE WEIGHT, thus enjoys major physical advantages over his opponents;
  • A NATURAL KILLER, always forcing the fight, always looking TO FINISH;
  • A NATURAL ATHLETE, always taking care of his body as well;
  • SOBER, never need to worry about him "fluctuating" in his abilities;
  • A STUDENT OF THE GAME — always trying/willing to learn something new;
  • COOL, FUNNY, and LIKABLE — even the fighters he has knocked-out, respect him, like him, and want to go train with him;
  • NERVES OF STEEL — the coldest staredown on the roster. Even after his only KO defeat, still fights like a killer. Didn't affect him at all;
  • LOVES TO FIGHT — is forever trying to "fight again," booking fights ASAP, trying to get out there and perform again for his fans over and over (not a diva);
  • ELITE-LEVEL SKILL — while people may criticize his ground game, which at this point is "average," NO ONE matches Alex Pereira in elite striking skills. No one.
There really is nobody else like him in the entire UFC.

So yeah, I think Alex Pereira is the best and most exciting signing for the UFC for the past decade, if not in its history.
