At the co-main event of UFC Montevideo, Mike Perry fought Vicente Luque. It was a gruesome fight and an extremely close fight. The judges ruled the fight in favour of Vicente Luque (28-29, 29-28, 29-28).
But the highlight of the fight was a fractured nose of Mike Perry which occurred after Vincente Luque landed a vicious knee in the final moments of the third round.
He was immediately transported to the hospital where he underwent successful surgery. Mike Perry would feel a little better knowing he earned an extra $50,000 for the “Fight of the Night” bonus.
