    The UFC is currently seeking a welterweight fighter willing to take on a rising contender on short notice.

    MMAjunkie today confirmed with promotion officials that Thiago Alves (22-11 MMA, 14-8 UFC) has been forced to withdraw from Saturday’s UFC Fight Night 116 co-headliner, and Mike Perry (10-1 MMA, 3-1 UFC) is in need of a new opponent.

    Alves’ representatives weren’t immediately available for comment or details on the fighter’s withdrawal.

    I doubt there's a man in the entire world, let alone the UFC, with the balls to fight the future of the welterweight division on such short notice.

    Also I was really looking forward to seeing Perry ruin Alves's life on Saturday, so I'm pretty fucking pissed right now...

    Mike Perry should fight Mike Perry. It would be entertaining as hell and I bet he would do it. The man talks in recursive circles.


    You read that right the first time.

    Well, props to Mike Perry for his willingness to take a new opponent on short notice. That is on the list of GOAT qualifications, after all.
