Mike Perry says he feels ‘like a dumbass’ after UFC 245 TKO loss

Mike Perry is not happy with himself following his TKO loss to Geoff Neal at UFC 245.

The fan-favorite in Perry was returning just months after his brutal broken nose and loss to Vicente Luque in August. He was also fighting a legit top-15 welterweight in Neal who became the first person to knock Perry out.

Now, following the loss, Mike Perry took to Twitter to admit he is a dumbass for the way he fought.

“Phok bro. Wtf, my offense wasn’t there. Damn if I don’t feel like a dumbass. Kids don’t be like me. It’s dangerous when you seem to enjoy getting hit in the face. But still, I will be back in the gym to drill moves to kill until my teams feels I’ll bring the thrills! Thanks,” Mike Perry wrote on Twitter.

With the loss, Mike Perry fell to 13-6 and is now 6-6 in the UFC. Perry is now 2-5 in his last seven. He’s now on a two-fight losing streak and will look to rebound come 2020 as he will no doubt have to start fighting unranked opponents again. He started his career out 9-0. But, once he started to fight the top-level of the UFC he began to falter.

Geoff Neal, meanwhile, is now 13-2 and is now on a seven-fight winning streak and 5-0 inside the Octagon. He is ranked 14th in the welterweight division and should be looking to get a top-10 opponent next as he put on a clinic against Perry.

Where Mike Perry goes from here is unknown. He is a big name and should not be considered to be released and can be on pay-per-view main cards and put on a show in fun fights. But, he knows he needs to start winning and having a better striking defense, especially after his UFC 245 loss to Geoff Neal.
