Mike Perry has been accused of punching three people at a bar, and knocking out a man and sending him to hospital. The last incident was caught on film by a bystander.
Per TMZ, Perry got heated after being asked to leave the restaurant Table 82 in Lubbock, Texas by an employee. Witnesses say Perry hit the employee, and then refused to leave the premises despite being asked to by his girlfriend and the rest of his companions.

This is pretty disgusting behaviour from a UFC calibre fighter. Acting like a complete child. pic.twitter.com/ZAuxZTtXtW

As Perry is being escorted out by a crowd of people, a man begins to argue with Perry, causing the UFC welterweight to punch him and knock him to the ground. The police were then called and according to their report, the victim was unconscious when they arrived and was subsequently taken to the hospital.
Perry was not arrested at the scene. He later took to his social media to offer a brief, “No comment.”

Perry has become something of an anti-hero amongst MMA fans, with his raw antics often entertaining the followers of the sport. His recent decision to have his girlfriend as his sole cornerman against Mickey Gall drew plenty of attention.
