UFC star Mike Perry dabs as he misses weight by FIVE POUNDS and forfeits 30 per cent of fight purse to Tim Means

UFC welterweight Mike Perry missed weight by a massive FIVE POUNDS before dabbing on the scales.

And as a result, he is now forced to hand over 30 per cent of his fight purse to opponent Tim Means.


The 29-year-old tipped the scales at 175.5lb, but needed to make the 171lb welterweight non-title limit.

But Perry's failure to do so does not come as a shock, after the UFC bad boy tweeted to inform fans of his weight-cutting struggles.

He wrote throughout the day: "I’m sorry man. I don’t think I can make it.

"I have always talked trash during weight cuts so that if I couldn’t make it I could say I told y’all I wasn’t sure.

"Maybe I’ve outgrown this. I did try to ask for a fight at 185 but maybe I just don’t have it anymore. I’m so thankful to all the kind people at the @ufc.

"Can’t believe I’ve even been here this long. Maybe I should just lay the gloves down. I don’t want it.

"I’m just in over my head with this weight. I was just 189 and now I’m 177 and I can’t sweat.

"I ran with a nice sauna suit , got in the portable sauna for 15 minutes, nothing.

"So easy for people to sit there and say shit but I swear I feel like anyone saying I’m weak for this doesn’t cut weight. It’s death to me.

"I’m dying already and have 6 more lbs to go. I know it doesn’t sound like a lot but it’s harder than the first 14."

Despite the failure to make weight, Means accepted a catchweight fight and will inherit 30 per cent of Perry's undisclosed purse.

Thankfully for the UFC, both Deiveson Figueiredo and Alex Perez weighed in successfully for their flyweight main-event.

And in the co-headliner, Valentina Shevchenko and Jennifer Maia did the same.
