Note how Perry's Road to the Octagon segment has 20k more views than Lawler/RDA and the Full Episode.

It's great to see. Always entertaining in and out of the cage.

Ponzinibbio is ranked #10 so a win here puts Perry into the top 10 and towards title contention.

While Woodley has been healing Welterweight is heating up again some fresh contenders are starting to rise RDA, Condit, Usman, Colby, Till and Perry.

Attracts young "alpha-wannabee" young males.

Lawler one win away from stepping back in there with Twood as well. 2018 could be a great year for WW.

That's odd. Robbie is such a bad ass. Deserves much more recognition

I thought perry was a huge douche

 

seeing more stuff about him, I realize he's a guy that made a shitload of mistakes when he was younger, then through sheer determination and grit (training outside his apartment with friends/no high level background) willed his way the ufcs top 10... I also get the Dee and Conor vibe from him and his gf but even more, she's cornered him and trains with him

He's a douche when he talks but I don't see how any mma fan doesn't enjoy his fights.

True, but he’s a silent assasin. 

He doesn’t provide much in the way of sound bytes or whatever you wanna call it.

I like fighters that talk lots of shit and then go in there and take a kill or be killed approach.

Not hard to understand.

Mike's good, and he has a fan friendly style. But "becoming bigger than the sport" is hyperbole at it finest.
