A little over a week after his impressive win over Mickey Gall, Mike Perry got himself in trouble. The 28-year-old welterweight was involved in an altercation with three people at a restaurant in Lubbock, Texas, leading to a misdemeanor charge for Class A assault.
Parts of the incident were caught on video, particularly when Perry was seen punching an old patron outside the restaurant.
The UFC immediately took action, stating Perry won’t be offered a fight until he seeks professional treatment. The official statement also claims that an apology was already made, but Perry recently issued another one, this time for the public to see.
I want to be a better role model for my family. For my unborn son. My Queen @latory_g 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 #Oss

Perry’s is facing another problem after his ex-wife Danielle Nickerson reportedly filed a domestic violence claim at a Florida court in February. The judge denied her request for a restraining order, but last week, Nickerson also released a post on social media, expressing her desire to “be brave and tell the truth.”
