Spoken and Besieged Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) welterweight Mike Perry came to Las Vegas, Nevada this weekend (Saturday, Nov 21, 2020) to fight Tim Means not that stupid ladder And « Dirty Bird » was more than willing to oblige in UFC 255 pay-per-view (PPV) main card action, throwing « Platinum » into a bloody mess en route to a unanimous decision.
Perry took out the aggressor, with Means dodged under a big looping blow early Means pumped the jab out of his back foot until Perry trapped him along the fence and knocked him to the ground with a body lock slam Perry worked from the first position, then leaned behind Mean’s and began to threaten with a bare rear choke Perry locked himself in a body triangle then pushed his jaw down the fence It looked like Means was in real trouble, but he was somehow able to go stomach to stomach and slide, returning to the center of the cage with 90 seconds remaining in the first round Means scored with a solid knee in Perry’s gut, which « Platinum » countered with a heartbreaking shot to the ribs on his own. Means locked him up along the fence with combinations and neat hits until » that the horn sounds to close the first five minutes
Means looked to mix it up to start the second stanza, pulling the jab several times and Perry tried to score another takedown.He gave up quickly and the pair returned to the center of the Octagon, where Means had used his length advantage to keep Perry at bay Perry came rushing for another out, but Means made him pay off with a short uppercut Means continued to find a home for his jab, but eventually Perry landed a hard blow upstairs which reeled « Dirty Bird » But rather than continue with more warnings, he opted for a pullout that didn’t materialize. The Means rocked the cobwebs and put a hard elbow on Perry’s face, then continued with the jab Perry continued to chase away a batter’s release but the round eventually ended
Perry’s face looked like ground beef between rounds, while Means looked immaculate Perry came out for the third and final round looking for an early takedown, but Means resisted and pulled away. made his way out of the fence after a brief struggle Means landed a nice right hand on the break, then locked Perry along the fence until they came back to the center of the cage Means’ kick continued to pay dividends, mixing up a few low shots to maintain Perry off balance Halfway through the round he suddenly became rock ’em, sock’ em robots with the two fighters unloading each other Perry finally closed the distance and pushed him against the fence to slow down the action Along the fence, Means continued to paint Perry’s face red with blood, propping him up along the cage several times Perry made a circle and returned to the center of the Octagon where he began to unload heavy and heavy shots But, Means was more than a game, holding his ground and returning the fire Perry tried to steal the ball with a late thrust, but in the end Means’ technical strike and volume made the difference.
I’m not sure where Perry is going from here – he’s now given up three of his last four fights inside the Octagon Missing weight and his myriad of personal issues outside of the cage n ‘certainly not helping his cause The means, meanwhile, continue to be very difficult
