Recently, when Alexander Volkanovski was asked whether he wished to next take on Cejudo, he denied it on the face. The Great who defeated Max Holloway in a controversy plagued split decision, said, “me fighting him ain’t helping my legacy.” To this, Cejudo used the hashtag BendTheKnee and responded by saying “I’ll bet my whole purse that you wouldn’t beat me! And my first girlfriend”.

Notably, Mike Perry had his girlfriend Latory Gonzalez at his corner in his fight against Gall. She had no professional experience of being there as help but Mike specifically finds her very motivating. Only time will tell if she can also help Mike leave his past behind and stay a hundred percent focused on his remaining promising career with UFC.
