Mike Perry reveals that doctors stuck metal rods up his nose after gruesome UFC Uruguay injury

Two weeks back in the co-main event of UFC Montevideo, Mike Perry fought Vicente Luque in a gruesome fight. In that fight, he got kneed in the third round which broke his nose. It was a horrific sight.

Yet, despite the broken nose Perry completed the round and lost in a very close decision. Perry was immediately transported to the hospital where he underwent successful surgery.

However, Perry thought he was going to die in a recent interview on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. He revealed that he was thinking about the two boxers that had passed away last month.

I knew he caused some damage, I caught the leg and (afterward) I was like, damn,” Mike Perry said on Ariel Helwani’s MMA Show. “You don’t really feel it until later. Later I felt the pain from them, whatever they did in the back sticking metal rods up my nose and cranking my face around trying to get my nose back in place — I felt that later. That gave me headaches.

With the recent deaths in boxing, I was like, ‘Damn, is my brain bleeding? Am I going to die?’ Those were real thoughts,” he added.
