In what seems like protocol at this point, Mike Perry may be in some trouble.
On Sunday evening, Jan. 3, the 29-year-old posted a graphic video of his leg bleeding profusely and a broken glass door. The video begins with a closeup of Perry’s face.
The UFC welterweight sighs and then flips the camera to show a shattered glass door, which appears to lead to a parking garage. He then pans the camera to left, revealing a puddle blood on the ground.
Inside an empty hallway, the blood looks like it is coming from the lower part of Perry’s left leg. During this time, Perry can be heard whispering “[Expletive]. [Expletive] am I supposed to do about this? [Expletive].”

After the video was posted, Perry wrote a disturbing tweet shortly after.
“No matter what I do it’s never enough. So I act out. Happy to spill my own blood,” Perry said via Twitter.
