The American welterweight Perry has only won one UFC fight since 2020. He is currently on a two-fight skid. Unfortunately, the 30-year-old has parted ways with the promotion. However, Perry is an active social media user and frequently shares a glimpse of his personal life with fans.

Recently, Perry shared a bizarre experience from his weight cut routine on his official Twitter account. He wrote, “2 Big tricks life plays on you. 1. You wanna lose weight, you have to eat more. At least 3x more a day. And 2. The more water you drink the more dehydrated you’ll be. Isn’t that crazy? Life’s a trip. Obviously, the details make the difference.”

In the video, the 30-year-old said, “This is the water that I drank its two and half gallons. So I have getting very dehydrated because I am peeing out and sweating out when I workout all of my salt and my sugar.”

“So My body is dehydrating because I am hydrating so much. Also, food wise to order for my body to lose weight, I have to keep my metabolism running. So, in order to do that, your body needs food.”
