UFC welterweight Mike Perry is struggling to cope with his most recent loss. “Platinum” suffered his second straight defeat at the hands of Daniel Rodriguez on Saturday via a lopsided unanimous decision.
The 29-year-old competitor released a post-fight statement on Instagram, revealing he has one fight left on his UFC contract. Despite the sting of the loss, he intends to fight on for his loved ones.
I use to be great. Idk what happened. I have a fight left on my contract. I’ll train hard, I’ll give it my all for my family. Whatever I have to do to give them a better life. I’ll bleed every day for them if I have to.
Perry also lost to Tim Means via decision in November, a fight where he also missed weight by 4.5 pounds. It led him to contemplate on a possible move to middleweight, but never made anything certain.
With the loss to Rodriguez, Perry now holds a record of 14-8.
