One & Done? ‘Michelle’ Perry Teases ‘Last UFC Fight’

He’s also not a Tribal Chief, but that never stopped him from playing the part.

Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) could be saying goodbye to longtime welterweight fan favorite, Mike Perry, but before he goes, he’s got his eyes on a couple of “white belts” in the form of Mickey Gall and Curtis Millender.

Assuming either of them can be ready by May.

“So first Mickey Gall talks shit on Thanksgiving while driving his Honda Accord to his pot dealers house (illegal but they leave him cuz he smoke reggie),” Perry wrote on Instagram. “And the worst part about a fight with Curtis Millender is he looks at me like I’m a pretty white girl named Michelle.”

Perry (12-4) is hoping to rebound from his submission loss to Donald Cerrone at UFC Denver last November (replay). After jumping out to an 11-1 start to his professional mixed martial arts (MMA) career, “Platinum” is just 1-3 dating back to late 2017.

Which is why he’s hoping to go out with a bang.

“It is not my decision which of these board the pain train I plan to roll in on,” he continued. “It is YOURS! THE PEOPLE! I was thinking a third mystery option rather than the two UFC whitebelts I just mentioned. Maybe a famous Brazilian out of respect for the country, the sport and all my jitsu brothers here at home. Can you think of who you would want to see me risk my beautiful face against in what could be my LAST UFC fight!”

Famous Brazilian? Jiu-jitsu? I’m thinking Demian Maia, which is probably a one-way ticket to the sub way. Unless you, the “Platinum” fans, have other ideas?

Conor McGregor Seems Totally Cool With What Happened Last Night

At UFC 229, former champ Conor McGregor took a beating at the hands of reigning champ Khabib Nurmagomedov. Then, because of all the bad blood between them, Khabib spat on Conor, climbed over the cage, and leaped into the audience to scrap with McGregor’s teammate, Dillon Danis.

To make matters worse, Khabib’s teammates scampered over the side of the cage and attacked McGregor. It was total bedlam, and it ended with Las Vegas police escorting McGregor backstage.

A dismayed UFC boss Dana White made it clear that some of Khabib’s teammates were subsequently arrested. And for sure the Nevada State Athletic Commission was withholding Nurmagomedov’s fight purse pending a review of the chaos.

But you know who seems totally cool with what transpired? Conor McGregor.

Here’s what the Irish superstar said on both Twitter and Instagram afterwards:

As for Khabib’s teammates who were arrested, McGregor even declined to press charges.

Those dudes ganged up on him and attacked him from behind. And McGregor is cool with that!

We’ll never know for sure, but I suspect that, had McGregor won the fight, he wouldn’t have spit on Nurmagomedov and attacked his team. He might have actually been respectful – complimentary even.

Here’s champ Daniel Cormier giving his two cents:

One Last Look At UFC 229’s Fight Card!

Fight card no longer subject to change!

With the weigh-ins complete (see staredown here), Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) Lightweight kingpin, Khabib Nurmagomedov, and former 145- and 155-pound “champ-champ,” Conor McGregor, are now officially set to compete later tonight (Sat., Oct. 6, 2018) inside T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. And it’s going to be absolutely bonkers. Indeed, there hasn’t been this much excitement around a UFC pay-per-view (PPV) event since, well, when McGregor locked horns with Nate Diaz for a second time at UFC 202 more than two years ago. That’s actually right around the same time that “Notorious” last stepped foot in the Octagon — he has not competed in mixed martial arts (MMA) since stopping Eddie Alvarez at UFC 205 in Nov. 2016 to win the promotion’s Lightweight title. It’s a belt — along with the Featherweight strap he claimed in Dec. 2015 — that he would never defend. That’s because McGregor was somehow able to finagle a “money” blockbuster boxing match against Floyd Mayweather, which the Irishman would lose via technical knockout in round 10.

But, he didn’t really lose anything, amirite? Nah …

Nurmagomedov and McGregor are expected to step into the cage sometime before midnight later this evening. The bout, which will be contested at 155 pounds, is scheduled for five, three-minute rounds. And the longer the fight goes, the more it favors Nurmagomedov, who pushes a brutal pace that grinds his opponents into fleshy red pulps. McGregor, meanwhile, has only fought for 25 minutes once (Diaz rematch), averaging just under five minutes in the cage throughout his 24-fight MMA career.

Nevertheless, before Nurmagomedov and McGregor hook ‘em up, Fight Pass will kickoff the action online at 6:30 p.m. ET then FOX Sports 1 will pick up the broadcast at 8 p.m. ET before transitioning to pay-per-view (PPV) at 10 p.m. ET. There, UFC 229 will also feature a pivotal match between top-ranked Lightweight contenders, Tony Ferguson (No. 1) and Anthony Pettis (No. 8), with the winner likely competing against the winner of the main event.

That’s not all, though … not by a long shot.
