Sharaputdin Magomedov is not as impressed with Michel Pereira's charity work as everyone else. With a potential bad blood rivalry brewing, Magomedov called 'Demolidor' a "hypocrite" for his aid of those in need from the recent flooding in Brazil.

In his latest callout of Pereira, 'Shara Bullet' bashed the Capoeira fighter for walking out with an Israeli flag at UFC 301. Magomedov, a Russian-born Muslim, criticized the Brazilian for supporting the country amid the Israel-Hamas war.

Translated to English, Magomedov wrote on his Instagram story:

"While this hypocrite is saving dogs in Brazil from a flood a thousand children are lying under bombs at the hands of child killers, and at the time he came out with the flag of this country and shouted to the whole world and supported them. Sooner or later I will get to him InshAllah, and then this merry fellow will not have so much fun."

With Pereira having no direct connection to Israel, many were puzzled by his decision to walk out with the national flag on May 4, particularly with the fight card being in his home country of Brazil. The 30-year-old explained that he merely wanted to show support for the nation during their time of war.


Shara Magomedov's initial callout of Michel Pereira

Since Michel Pereira's win at UFC 301, Sharaputdin Magomedov has called for a fight with the Brazilian due to him being originally scheduled to fight Pereira's last opponent, Ihor Poteiria. Pereira was booked to fight Makhmud Muradov at the event, but Potieria stepped in on short notice following Muradov's withdrawal.

In a seemingly deleted tweet, Magomedov expressed frustration with losing his fight against Potieria, claiming Pereira needs to be "punished" for hitting the Ukrainian with an illegal knee while backflipping over 'The Duelist' after scoring a knockdown.

Translated to English, Magomedov tweeted:

"[Michel Pereira], you damn acrobat. I lost my opponent because of you... The UFC is not a circus. You made an illegal move, and now you have [to be] punished. @ufc let me deal with this clown, ship him to Saudi Arabia June 22 and I will quickly teach him a lesson"

Since submitting Potieria, Pereira was briefly rumored to make another quick turnaround against Roman Dolidze at UFC Louisville, but the fan favorite quickly reacted to the report, stating that he never signed for the fight and desires to take time off after his recent run of fights.
