Mike Perry Isn’t Buying Thiago Alves’ ‘Bullsh*t’ Excuse for UFC Pittsburgh

News broke yesterday that Thiago Alves had to pull out of his fight with Mike Perry at UFC Pittsburgh.

Originally, the cause was unknown, but it was eventually reported by Ariel Helwani that it was due to complications…

“THAT’S BULLSH-T. I CAME FROM FLORIDA, WE GOT MORE F-CKED UP THAN HE DID. THERE ARE SO MANY PEOPLE HERE FROM SOUTH FLORIDA. I WAS JUST TALKING TO MICHAEL JOHNSON. HIS COACHES FROM [AMERICAN TOP TEAM] DOWN THERE, ARE HERE TODAY. THEY FLEW UP YESTERDAY WHEN HE WAS SUPPOSED TO. HE IS FEEDING Y’ALL BULLSH-T. HE DON’T WANT TO FIGHT, HE DOESN’T WANT TO RETIRE YET AND I WAS GOING TO PUT HIM TO SLEEP. IT’S SIMPLE AS THAT. DOES HE GET THE OPPORTUNITY TO FIGHT ME AFTER I SMASH [ALEX REYES]? THEY NEED TO GET ME A TOP-10 OPPONENT AFTER THIS.”

Just talked to Mike Perry, had some thoughts about Thiago Alves’ travel schedule. Coming to @FanSidedMMA soon. #UFCPittsburgh

“THIS IS BULLSH-T. THREE DAYS AND I GET SOME CHUMP EVERYBODY EXPECTS ME TO BEAT. I THINK HE IS A TOUGH GUY CAUSE HE TOOK THE FIGHT, HE IS A BLACK BELT AND MUST HAVE SOME TYPE OF GAME PLAN FOR ME BUT IT’S NOT GOING TO MATTER. I’M GOING TO SMASH THIS GUY, SIMPLE AS THAT. SO, WHY WOULD I TAKE A FIGHT WITH THIAGO [ALVES] AGAIN AND EXPECT HIM TO PULL OUT THREE DAYS BEFORE, YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? MAYBE THE FIGHT WILL HAPPEN, MAYBE IT WON’T, BUT I THINK I DESERVE A TOP-10 AFTER THIS BECAUSE I’M GIVING SOMEBODY A SHOT AND THEY NEED TO GIVE ME ANOTHER SHOT.” – MIKE PERRY SPEAKING TO FANSIDED.
