VIDEO: Mike Perry ‘Dabs’ After He Misses Weight by 5 Pounds at UFC 255

UFC welterweight Mike Perry made a sizeable blunder on the scale for his UFC 255 main card match-up. ‘Platinum’ Perry who faces veteran Tim Means on the main card opener came in overweight by a significant margin. Perry stepped in on the scale at 175.5 pounds, and it didn’t seem like the weight slip affected him all that much.

The aforementioned bout will move into the catchweight category as Perry paid ‘The Dirty Bird’ 30% of his fight purse. 24 fighters will compete on the UFC 255 pay-per-view card and Perry was the only one to come in heavy. Chiefly, fans were relieved that both the flyweight title fights on the top of the card are on weight.

Mike Perry signals a tough weight cut

‘Platinum’ took to Twitter a few hours before weigh-ins and let it be known that he was going to miss weight. The welterweight brawler clearly had a rough weight cut, and it’s clear he knew that things were going to go south. Perry sent out a series of Tweets that broke the bad news.

Additionally, Perry had provided an update on his cut and shared that he had 6 brutal pounds to shed off. It seemed apparent from the get-go that ‘Platinum’ was struggling to make the scale on the money come weigh-in day.

What’s more, it seems as though Mike just can’t stay out of the headlines as he’s had an eventful year. In the midst of it all, Mike Perry defeated Mickey Gall by decision earlier in the year with just his partner Latory Gonzalez in his corner. This change occurred after Mike Perry decided to train on his own terms, away from a traditional MMA gym setting.

All in all, it’s safe to say that Perry will have to get his act together when it comes to his run in the UFC. He’s had a tough go in the company as of late and he’ll be hoping that a fight against Tim Means can set things right.
