UFC welterweight Mike Perry is known for two things: his outlandish, over-the-top behavior and his penchant for bringing the violent sleeps inside the cage. 

Sitting down with former UFC contender Dan Hardy during a Facebook Live session streamed to the UFC's official Facebook page, Perry showed another side: his calm, analytical, real-talk tendencies. 

The results are beautiful. 

The "Platinum" one dishes on the upcoming UFC 217 clash between Jorge Masvidal and Stephen Thompson on Nov. 4, his own upcoming bout against Santiago Ponzinibbio at UFC on Fox 26 on Dec. 16, and much more.


Enjoy the show.
