Last night at UFC 255, Flyweight Champs Deiveson Figueiredo and Valentina Shevchenko proved why they were such heavy favorite in the main/co-main events with dominant wins. Figueiredo's even gonna turn around for a title defense versus Brandon Moreno in 21 days!
Pretty fucking wild.
Still, though, the first thing I thought about when I woke up this morning was the UFC fucking up Mike Perry's walkout music and forcing him to enter the Apex to 'Halo' by Beyonce.
Fucking hysterical. Couldn't have drafted up a more anti-Mike Perry song if you gave me all day. Maybe 'Soul Sister' by Train?
I love imagining that this was all a plot by Uncle Dana to punish Perry for missing weight so badly and then dabbing the day prior….
….but it probably wasn't.
Mike Perry went on to lose his fight with Tim Means via unanimous decision. Who knows what his future holds now.
Here's some highlights from the night…..
P.S. Sorry for the delay on UFC 255 blogs, folks, I know thats unlike me - had some wonky ass internet last night and was battling thru, then the card went til like 2am.
