A poster on Reddit MMA revealed himself to be in the corner of Mike Perry at UFC 255 and shared a behind-the-scenes look at the experience.


On Wednesday, Reddit MMA member bsWINcups revealed that he was the one who was in the corner of Mike Perry at UFC 255 alongside Latory Gonzalez. The Redditor posted a behind-the-scenes video of him cornering Perry, noting that “Platinum” treated him great throughout the week and saying it was one of the greatest nights of his entire life.

It’s still a bit surprising that the UFC ultimately allowed the Redditor to corner Perry after White said it wasn’t allowed, but in the end, he seemed to do a fine job in the corner giving Perry some advice, especially for someone who isn’t a professional. Ultimately, the loss is completely on Perry here as he showed up overweight and put on a poor showing.

Perry said whoever bid the highest could corner him, some dude on Reddit offered 10k. Dfw turned it down and said it would not be allowed. The Instagram and Reddit post's were deleted and Perry turned up with his 'long time' friend in his corner. I imagine Dana is fucking pissed

I don’t think Dana can do shit. Seconds aren’t licensed and the contract stipulates how many you can have, doesn’t say anywhere who they have to be as long as they’re allowed to be there. If you want Panama Lewis in your corner you’ll be shit out of luck lol.

i am a dfw fan, overall. but these guys can't stand when fighters find their own income stream that they can't get their hands on and control. See the Reebok deal for reference and how sponsors had to go through and pay the ufc before that. And remember, these guys are supposedly independent contractors. so please no comps to mlb, nba, nfl, etc.

Good for Mike for having another stream of revenue.

Good for the fan for the experience.

* On a SideNote:  I have met Mike Perry before with his previous wife (Platinum Princess) when he fought in Massachusetts before UFC.  And I said, he was extremely friendly and respectful.  Princess Platinum was as well.  He was very humble.

Anyone else catch the clip on embedded when Perry got off his flight? Check out his response to his driver when asked how the flight went at around 30 seconds.

Oh shit. I thought it didn't happen


LOL @ "long time friend". Perry is crafty

All that to piss Dana and make 10K, while he lost more by not making weight... and by pissing off Dana.

Crafty... but not very smart.

Especially when they can be cut at any moment.

"I imagine Dana is fucking pissed"

Oh yeah, I bet he is mad as hell at all the attention. If there is one thing Dana hates, it is eyes being drawn to his product.
