Mike Perry issues apology after bizarre, violent behaviour

“I want to be a better role model for my family"

After a string of controversies, Mike Perry has decided to issue an apology for his behaviour.

From using racial slurs to threatening potential opponent’s family members to his latest transgression, in which he knocked out an older man at a bar after a heated argument, the UFC welterweight lives up to his controversial reputation. It was, however, the incident in which he assaulted an older man that seems to have been the straw that broke the camels back.

Now, taking to social media, Perry has decided to apologise for his controversial, aggressive behaviour.

“I want to be a better role model for my family,” Mike Perry wrote in his open apology. “For my unborn son. My Queen Latory Gonzalez and for myself so I can earn the respect I deserve. To my sponsors and my bosses at UFC. I want to apologize for how my actions have impacted our relationships. I will be better all around.”


When the video surfaced of Perry assaulting the restaurant patron, the UFC issued a statement, condemning his behaviour and and confirming that the controversial welterweight will complete treatment and counselling sessions.

“UFC is aware and troubled by the video that was released last night concerning Mike Perry.” The statement began. “The conduct displayed by Perry is no reflective of that of our organization.

Perry apologized for his behaviour and acknowledged he was disappointed with himself that his actions may have reflected poorly on UFC. He further acknowledged that he believes he has some issues related to alcohol abuse and has informed UFC that he has committed to immediately seek professional treatment, including substance and behaviour counselling.

At this time, UFC has informed Perry that he will not be offered a bout, and the parties have agreed to evaluate next steps for Perry following the completion of his treatment program,” The statement concluded.
