UFC 202: Mike Perry makes impressive debut with brutal first round knockout
Mike Perry made a splash in his debut with destructive striking to knockout Hyun Gyu Lim at UFC 202
UFC 202's pay-per-view card began with a pair of UFC debuts from Sabah Homasi and Mike Perry in the first two fights of the main card.
Homasi did not fare well as he was dispatched by opponent Tim Means in the second round by way of TKO after taking brutal abuse from Means' phenomenal striking.
Perry, who faced veteran Hyun Gyu Lim, had a very different debut, as he won in spectacular fashion by way of a first round TKO. Perry was able to close the distance on the bigger, taller Lim and land massive punches with both hands -- his left hand delivering the blow that put Lim to the mat for the final time -- leading to a backflip celebration from Perry.
Perry's win on Saturday backed up his antics at Friday's weigh-in where he taunted Lim with a fake handshake before their staredown on the stage.
Perry's performance on a huge pay-per-view event is about as perfect a UFC debut that he could hope for. He showed tremendous power and has plenty of charisma to go with that power that could make him a fan favorite early in his UFC career.
