‘The Notorious’ one suffered 2 losses in his last 3 fights in the UFC. Fans were disheartened to see him fall like that. UFC welterweight Mike Perry shared his take on the same recently.

It is true the UFC and MMA, in general, became much more popular because of McGregor. He elevated the sport to new levels. Fans started following the UFC largely because of his contributions inside and outside the Octagon.

McGregor may have many haters as he triggers people with his actions. But there are unmatched following he got too. His popularity is beyond normal.

And for his real fans, it was tough to swallow his recent defeat against Poirier. The dominating and charismatic striker is somewhat missed by everyone.

The same happened with Jose Aldo, whom McGregor knocked out inside 13 seconds to claim the featherweight title in 2015. Perry revealed it pained him to see the Brazilian legend lose like that.

He also proceeded to mock the Stockton native Nate Diaz. The younger Diaz brother has fallen victim to the Twitter army, much like himself, believes Perry. Diaz is set for a return at the lightweight division, though. And a possible trilogy against Conor McGregor in near future could very well be on the cards.

‘Platinum’ also took a shot at UFC Lightweight Champion Khabib Nurmagomedov and his decision to retire. Nurmagomedov is seemingly uninterested in returning to the UFC Octagon.

What’s next for Mike Perry?

Perry lost a unanimous decision to Tim Means at UFC 255. The perennial welterweight contender has now dropped 3 of his last 5 bouts. He has had troubles with weight cutting as he missed weight at his last outing against Means.

Perry has always been a big welterweight and needs proper discipline to make the 171 lbs mark. But his frenzy lifestyle lets him down.

He can very well pursue his luck in the middleweight division of the UFC in his next outing. But ‘Platinum’ is yet to make a decision on that. Were you pained to see Conor McGregor lose at UFC 257? What do you make of Mike Perry’s claims?
