Mike Perry Gracious In Defeat After Having Arm Broken By Donald Cerrone

Mike Perry not only lost his grudge match with Donald Cerrone at UFC Fight Night 139, but also had his arm broken by the fight-ending armbar submission that ended the contest late in the first round, but he’s remained gracious in defeat.

On Instagram, Perry posted a picture of himself in the middle of being armbarred by Cerrone alongside the caption, “When you wished you’d trained more Jiu-Jitsu before the fight.”

He also then congratulated ‘Cowboy’ for his victory and suggested that it had been a learning experience that has made him eager to shore up the weaknesses in his ground game in the training room for his future fights.

“Drillers make killers. We fine tuned so many things in my fight game. We did not work or drill offensive ground control and strikes from top. If I drill and flow my jiu jitsu offensive top game the way I worked on my kickboxing flow I’ll be ripping limbs off and landing effective G&P my next match. Off to get my black belt 🥋✊🏼🙏🏼 congrats to @cowboycerrone for breaking an arm to break all the records last night. Stepping stone for me. I learned a lot and am more dangerous from it already 🙏🏼✊🏼🥋thank you.”
