Video: Mike Perry hits older man in bar litigation, police say three assaults


UFC welterweight Mike Perry was caught filming an older man after an apparent argument at a restaurant.

Perry, 28, hit the man after a verbal argument while an unknown woman tried to get him out of the restaurant. Perry said to the man, “I’m going to knock your old ass out” before throwing a punch that seemed to knock the man over. Bar patrons can be heard gasping for air, and security seems to come in while Perry sits outside on a bench.

Lubbock, Texas police confirmed to MMA Combattre a man who matched Perry’s full name – Michael Joseph Perry – and his date of birth. where the UFC welterweight trained for its most recent bout.

Perry went on Twitter when the video went viral. Her manager Malki Kawa did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Police said the assault resulted in three victims. Perry was interrogated at the scene, but was not arrested. The charge in Perry’s file was a Class A assault, an offense. Perry will have to go to court and could face a $ 500 fine.

TMZ reported that the man Perry allegedly hit was taken to hospital. Witnesses said that the combatant was drinking Mojito at the bays and had hit an employee after being asked to leave the restaurant.

Several times during the video, Perry shouts a racial slur as colder heads try to intervene, and Perry shouts to the woman who drove him, “You’re not on my side, shit! Perry’s girlfriend, Latory Gonzalez, appears to be leaving the facility just before the scene becomes physical.

The video of the incident surfaced Wednesday evening via Twitter user MMA Eejit.

The alleged assault is not the first time Perry has been caught fighting outside the cage on video. He posted a video of him knocking out a man outside another bar after an argument.

Perry was recently seen in the octagon at the UFC on ESPN 12, where he edged out Mickey Gall to bounce back from his first knockout loss in a fight against Geoff Neal last December. Perry was trapped by Gonzalez in the fight against Gall and said he chose to do it because he only wanted his girlfriend to share the glory of his victory.
