The UFC recently held an Athlete Retreat in Las Vegas, and while it seems to have gone mostly well, there’s bound to be some tension when you put hundreds of fighters in the same area. Cris Cyborg made headlines after punching Angela Magana (watch here), with the strawweight said to have pressed charges. Another dust up seems to have happened this past weekend between two more fighters from completely different weight classes.

According to Mike Perry, a welterweight, he got physical with Jeremy Stephens while Snoop Dogg was performing.

“I pushed Jeremy Stephens to the ground,” he told “We were at the Snoop Dogg concert. Cris ‘Cyborg’ had punched that one girl in the face on the second day. On the first night, they got between a couple of fighters, but they didn’t even touch each other.

“But then Jeremy Stephens tried to dance up on my girl, and he knew it was my girl. It was at the end of the night. Snoop had already come out, and I had been killing it, dancing with my girl all night. Jeremy Stephens walks up on her, and mid hip-thrust, as he was about to maybe make contact with her body, I pushed that motherf—ker hard as I could, double-hand to his chest, and he fell on the ground. He was mad as hell but he didn’t do s—t.”

Perry then seemed to have taken the advice of the “drunk” Budweiser guest speaker, as he channeled Conor McGregor.

“He was trying to be a dick, but he’s 145 pounds, he doesn’t want these problems,” Perry continued. “Who the fuck is that guy, bro?”
