UFC Fight Night results featured: Mike Perry beats Mickey Gall to win with girlfriend in his corner

As cheeky and bombastic as they appear in the UFC, “Platinum” Mike Perry relied much more on skill than sensationalism to break a losing two-fight skid on Saturday in the UFC Fight Night main event in Las Vegas.

Despite his new girlfriend’s controversial debut as his lone cornerback, Perry (14-6) brutalized Mickey Gall in the last two rounds and dominated the exchanges to make a unanimous decision (29-28, 29-28, 29-28 ) within the UFC Apex facility.

Gall (6-3) showed his best shot in the first round when Perry tried to hunt down, but once Perry was able to establish advantages in hitting power and strength in the clinch, he started pulling on Gall’s, 28 years old. gas tank.

“It all depends on me, every time we get in there. It all depends on me,” Perry said. “I organized the training camp. It was necessary. I did what I had to do to get the victory.”

Perry delivered several volatile interviews before the fight and appeared to be deranged as he defended his decision to appoint the inexperienced Latory Gonzalez as his coach. But Gonzalez’s wisdom wasn’t needed tonight, as Perry seemed the fittest, strongest, and most experienced fighter, while improving to 7-6 overall in the UFC.

“Mickey trained a lot. He came in with a respectable team that had a game plan with him. The boy came in and fought hard,” said Perry. “Give Mickey credit as they will take away my credit anyway and 100% of you were talking about that mess online. They were picking it up and I won, so now don’t take it away from me and say he has no experience. He has a lot more experience than any of you on the street or in the Octagon. ”

Despite shots against Gall opening a cut below Perry’s eye in the first round, “Platinum” had little trouble from there. She blocked a Gall kick attempt to close the round before landing a reverse hit.

In round 2, Perry dropped his opponent late with a right hand and a follow-up that landed behind his head. Perry worked to ride completely and landed vicious elbows before the horn until the end of the round. In the final round, Perry knocked down an exhausted Gall with ease and worked hard to win the victory.

“I trained for this like a pro and gained weight like a pro,” said Perry. “Look at my physique, I look better than 99% of UFC fighters. Only Francis Ngannou could have something with me.”

“I am going to look for a training ground and some teammates. I am looking to move to South Florida and I will be close. I will take some knowledge from you and we will see. I have to do some moves and take this money and move to a new area, Me and my girl. There are some important things that happen in my life and I am going to put together some things. I have to pay some bills and some debts. “

It was Perry’s first win in 14 months and he moves his record to 3-5 since 2018. Meanwhile, Gall drops to 2-3 from 2017 and has alternated wins and losses during that time.
