Perry was taken to hospital, after a grueling nose break. Whilst in hospital, he thought of the two fighters, Maxim Dadashev and Hugo Santillian had died earlier due to injuries sustained during their fights.

“I knew he caused some damage, I caught the leg and after I was like, damn,” He said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show.

“You don’t really feel it until later. Later I felt the pain from them, whatever they did in the back sticking metal rods up my nose and cranking my face around trying to get my nose back in place, I felt that later. That gave me headaches.

“With the recent deaths in boxing, I was like, ‘Damn, is my brain bleeding? Am I going to die?’ Those were real thoughts,” He said.

Mike Perry had broken his nose, and thankfully nothing major happened. He had surgery, which will keep him out of the UFC Octagon for 6 months.
