Anyone else think Perry came off really well in the post fight presser? Combine that with a smart fight and I'm pretty impressed with him for the first time

agreed.what appeared to be a obviously retarded move only having his gf corner him now occurs to me it might possibly have been a crafty marketing strategy & a calculated risk leaning into his Florida man persona and drawing our interest.

either way it worked.

He doesn’t even know how to pay taxes.

yeah, he gained a new fan with that fight but specially the post-fight interview

sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do, a full camp and he probably wouldn't be able to pay off his debts, move. etc.

Dana, create an escrow impound account for Perry to cover his taxes please.

My exact text to my brother tonight was “somebody get this man a financial advisor”...very refreshing to just hear the honesty from him...always enjoyed watching him fight but thought there was a very high probability of a war machine-type scenario...hope the guy makes good decisions and sticks around for a while, I’m an even bigger fan after tonight!

i agree with all the good vibes for Mike Perry, but somehow I have the nagging feeling that 3-4 years down the line we will have the headline MIKE PERRY FACING $400K IRS PENALTY FOR IMPROPER FILING OF TAXES!

With only his gf in his corner I wouldn’t expect anything less!

Yes. New fan here. Dude has made personal mistakes but he comes across as a genuine bro. And - he can fight!

Surely the UFC provides these guys a level of financial advice or support.

 

That said I bet a few choose to ignore it.

 

Lastly on a side note- why do so many high profile Americans get in trouble with taxes? In Australia the government withholds our taxes as a percentage of our earnings and we sort it all out at the end of the year.

 

Is it just because these guys are contractors or sole trader type arrangements that they are getting paid gross and have to offset tax themselves?
