"Platinum" Mike Perry won't soon forget his trip to Montevideo to fight South American star Vicente Luque after the American found himself on the receiving end of what some fans are calling the "worst" broken nose in UFC history.
One good news for Perry in spite of a nasty injury is that, it was announced that both fighters walked away with an additional $50,000 from the Fight of the Night award. But it was the damage Perry sustained that saw him go viral at the conclusion of the fight.
Perry (13-5 MMA, 6-5 UFC) came out on the wrong end of a split decision against Luque (17-6-1 MMA, 10-2 UFC) in the welterweight co-headliner Saturday, but he left the octagon with more than a loss.
