The incident occurred at Table 82 restaurant in Lubbock at 10:30 pm Tuesday night. According to sources, prior to the video being circulated on the internet, Mike Perry had already punched another man in the restaurant.
The man who Perry punched earlier stated that he didn’t touch him to warrant that punch from the UFC fighter, which seemed to have angered him.
“Oh, you didn’t touch me?” Perry screamed sarcastically.
After going back and forth with the unidentified man, Mike Perry went off at another old man seating outside the restaurant.
“Man, I’ll knock your old a** out too – you old piece of s***.” Perry said while being provoked by the old man.

The old man landed hard on the concrete floor and was carried to a local hospital where he stated that he couldn’t remember the incident.
