Video: UFC’s Mike Perry practices social distancing, KOs ‘drunk’ man ‘harassing’ him

New, comments

Mike Perry does not seem to be self-isolating very well, but that is not why you are here.

Mike Perry is practicing social distancing by punching out drunk fools.

The man known as “Platinum” posted a video of himself cracking an individual who was allegedly harassing him in the streets of Orlando, Florida. Perry, 28, asserted he was being followed by the individual in the video and that Perry tried to walk away from the situation multiple times.

“He’d actually just punched me in the mouth,” Perry explained in his own little version of Inside the Octagon or Morning Kombat: Dissected. “I created space, he followed with his fists balled. As I stepped into position around the girl he either flinched or got distracted from what his drunk ass was doing which was harassing me. He wouldn’t stop so I ended it. I threw the jab/hook split seconds before he looked to the left. I could’ve continued to ground and pound him to death but walked away and spoke to the police.”

Perry (13-6) offered a piece of advice for anyone trying to mess with him.

“Please believe you play with fire you’re gonna get burned. If you can mind your space and social distance yourself from my personal bubble (then) anything can be resolved through conversation,” he concluded. “Check yo’ selves.

Perry is currently on a two-fight skid following back-to-back losses to Geoff Neal and Vicente Luque. His last win was a unanimous decision over Alex Oliveira in April.
