Video shows UFC welterweight Mike Perry hitting man, using racial slurs in Texas bar

32

UFC fighter Mike Perry was caught on video Tuesday night punching a man at a Texas bar and using racial slurs in the video that surfaced on social media. Perry, a welterweight, appeared to strike an older man during a dispute that included at least one employee of the establishment asking Perry to leave. In the video, which was posted Wednesday night, Perry argued that another patron of the restaurant — not the man he seemed to hit — had touched him. In the aftermath of the skirmish, Perry could be heard shouting several racial slurs. Perry, who is white, has been known to use the N-word, but the UFC has never announced discipline for Perry’s language. The incident occurred at Table 82 in Lubbock, Texas, ESPN confirmed with sources on Wednesday. TMZ was the first to report the locale. A spokesperson for the establishment, when reached Wednesday, declined comment
