Mike Perry is making his weigh cut interesting ahead of UFC on FOX 26. That includes doing a Facebook Q&A from inside a portable sauna.
Perry (11-1 MMA, 4-1 UFC), who fights Santiago Ponzinibbio (25-3 MMA, 7-2 UFC) on Saturday’s FOX-televised main card at Bell MTS Place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, following prelims on FS1 and UFC Fight Pass, has already guaranteed a first-round knockout in his sixth octagon appearance. He said a whole lot more during the Q&A.
“Platinum” responded to fans online for nearly 30 minutes as he worked to drop his final pounds for his welterweight showdown with Ponzinibbio. Topics included his weight cut, his next fight after UFC on FOX 26, channeling an orca as his spirit animal and much, much more.
Watch it all below (via Facebook):
One of the highlights included an epic poem from Perry.

Jingle bell, jingle bell, jingle bell rock.
Your mom sucked my (expletive).
She liked it a lot.
What you know about that?
I’m the mother(expletive) man,
and I’m getting paid more than you can
’cause I fuck mother(expletives) up with my hands.
I beat their ass quick,
and they cut me a check,
and I spend it on my chick.
So I can’t wait to eat some chicken nuggets –
dip that (expletive) in some ranch and eat some orange juice, man.
